Um.. 5.1 here I come.. or lower.. *sigh* I've been editing everything with a weird tinges these days. I don't know what's wrong with me but I still kind of like it this way.. People will hate the editing, and this isn't a portrait and portraits do well in a candid challenge...

Simply desaturated all colours except red. Put a sepia filter..and tada!

And no this wasn't wasn't posed. I'm just crazy woman who clicked on burst and ran off into the wild..

Absolutely fabulous and I would have thought it would have placed MUCH higher. This needs to be printed and hung on a prominent wall in your home. Congratulations on a great photograph.

This is just a beautiful picture, plus or minus nothing. The selective desat does no harm at all and the sepia is just great. Firing off mad bursts and running sounds like a technique to me :)
Bit sneaky you getting a better Posthumous ribbon than me, but there are forces over which we may have no control.

Burst mode was made for people who know how to title. And it IS a portrait of the now twice redly bedizened and specially outstanding donkey.

Normally I don't like selective desat, but this one works for some weird reason. What a strange and wonderful shot.

The sense of "moment" is present in this image and the obvious character being captured carries some visual impact. Technically, it's a very well composed image which is a plus. From an artistic standpoint, it lacks impact. A worthy entry into the challenge just lacking that something special to make it stand out.
