Last minute entry, and I think I did an OK job! This is a tribute to Glowing Paper by TomH1000.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/330/120/166329.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/330/120/166329.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I hope you don't mind!?!?!?

PP in PS CS:
Very minimal:

cropped, NeatImage, border, save for web, cross fingers and prey.

-----------------------------------

WOW! My highest ever entry! I was aiming for a top 20 with this, but a top 5! So close to the yellow, but close enough for me.

Thanks for all the nice comments, and positive vibes.

This is my last entry (for the near future) with the KM Z10, as I now have Nikon D50. Will that help me get a ribbon? Hope so.

Cheers,

Iain

Simple yet effective, maybe not a ribbon (just need a bit more interest).

Simple, smooth and great colors. Love the negative space and the angle the paper is coming out at. One of my top picks of the challenge. Bumping up.
