Well, at least you got a brown ribbon out of your first challenge, (and you learned about white balance!) No place to go but up now! Welcome to the madhouse that is DPC!

There are a few problems with this entry I'm afraid. The major one is poor white balance that is creating a color cast. You may have been shooting this under incandescent bulbs, judging from the yellow cast. Your camera should have a WB setting labeled "incandescent" or "tungsten" that will give a more natural appearance to something under these conditions.

I'm afraid that the lighting, color & blur of this image isn't really doing anything for me.

A 3 for:

- blown highlights (try different exposure methods to avoid this, if possible)
- bad white balance. If your camera doesn't have a great auto-white balance, or manual white balance modes, try shooting in different lighting (say outdoors, or under fluorescent lights, to try and achieve less color cast in your photo (in this case, it is overly yellow).

- focus. The overall photo is very blurry and fuzzy, which means that focus was missed. Either this is because the camera wasn't held steady, or the shutter was pressed before auto-focus was achieved properly.

Another element that can be improved is composition (try finding more interesting ways to pose and/or shoot from different angles. Straight on shots are rarely going to get much score.)

Wow that's a REALLY yellow tint!

Cool idea... The image could be a lot sharper, though. I think I'd prefer to see the yellow tones backed off a bit, as well.

Out of focus, your white balance seems off and the composition doesn't arouse interest.

Maybe try using a tripod so the focus is better and try different types of lighting. This is pretty harsh.

Focus is way off. Colors are off and way oversaturated.
