I used this concept before and it seemed to fit this challenge even better.549757.jpg

The metaphor: China - are they taking over everything perhaps the planets and sun if we don't catch up.

Indeed a metaphor! Congrats on teh ribbon.
But don't you worry :) There is no history of anyone nation ruling all over the world - Alexander and Julius Caesar included!

What a bright image, it stands out more then a cloudy day. I've seen many water drops get many ribbons, too. Duplication with variation and great processing can do it.

Another top choice makes it to the ribbon stand! Congratulations!

Stunning Colours in this, and very different take ont he challenge, but definently works. Love the effect. Only down side is the colour on the lower part of the hand. Can't really do anything about that in Basic Rules so can't do much about that anyway. One of the best in my opinion

Nice photo. I like the concept but I would have liked the sun be a but less blurry. I don't know how to explain what I mean but if you look at the sun the stuff around it is very distracting.

Very nice idea. A fill flash for the hand would have been nice to see used in this photo. As for the complexities of exposure on this type of shot, you did really well.

Don't know the metaphor but the shot is very good. I feel a bit to bright on the water reflection.

Another very creative take. Hope you don't get too many DNMCs. The bit of flare is a little distracting.

there are too big burned areas in the frame. probably with a filling flash you could obtain a better image.

You'll need a hell of a lot of beginner's luck. (No insult intended, remember Karate Kid!)
