While I am yet to win a blue ribbon, I felt this would resonate with the DPC community. I had to create the big ribbon manually, gee, that was fun but now I have the template so I can do it again any time I want.

Converted from ARW, Levels, selective colour, cropped, noise ninja run twice, resized, unsharp mask at 50% 0.9 then 30% 0.6, saved for web.

Could be sharper in the face (eyes). Interesting take on the challenge, but perhaps a different composition would have worked better.

Can't say I'm laughing my ass off but I can appreciate the humor. Think some better lighting might make this shot more pleasing, cheezy as the subject matter is.

This made me grin! With so many in this challenge having a hard time getting the concept of "triumph" converted to a photo - yours is there in spades!

Sharp and funny - Maybe more of a personal appeal than a public one.

One can only dream. (I mean me). Funny, and a kinda cool shot. I think it could have been better though, maybe in a different setting.
