Dude - congratulations on this high scoring masterpiece! I actually expected it to land in blue territory, but you have NOTHING to be ashamed of here... The entire concept, setup, technical shoot, and presentation are flawless. Outstanding work - and I'm so glad that it's YOU! Congrats again my friend!

I love the colors and how you you spread the rainbow across the word. ROYGBIV. That gets an extra plus. Very creative.

one of my favorites this challenge ... drawn to the colors and the single word

yes, Diversity what........where is the motivational saying that makes this a motivational poster, rather than a statement. The image you have chosen does connect in well with the title. The colours are very bright and different. I don't know what this is that you photographed. Its just a shame it is not more closely linked to the challenge, as that will hurt your overall score
