Drew the ribbon on a paper sheet.
Cutted it as a negative.
Pointed to the blue sky and shoot.
Post processing was cropping, flip, some adjust in saturation and levels, and, at last, unsharp mask.

The edges aren´t sharp, indeed.

I knew it. But the original template (a paper sheet cutted with the ribbon shape) was not perfectly cutted, and the pictures with the focus in it were not good. It was monday, and the next day the sky were very grey and cloudy...

I tried to fix it with Unsharp Mask... but no big progress at all.

I was very upset about it, because i thought that this was a nice idea, and the unsharpness was a big issue... (and this was the oppinion of most of the commenters...)


Lets persevere until the victory!!

I like the idea, and the fact that the clouds are visible through this. I sorta wish the ribbon cutout was sharp as well though... that would make this all the better for me...

An interesting submission, and one that does meet the challenge topic for this. It does take perseverance on this site. i like the clouds in the sky, but the lack of sharpness is what is hurting you here. it is on the edge where my eyes try and make it sharp, but can't........its a shame because the idea was good.
