The idea behind the Posthumous Ribbon is to encourage you to break the rules, to find new and different ways to express yourself. To free your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come, to laugh at world and at life, not doing what others are expecting you to do, but just following and listening to what's in your heart. DPC itís a wonderful learning place where everyone should be supported on their way to be a photographer. A special attention should be aimed to those working hard with different views and approaches to photography, those not aligned with the mainstream taste and receiving no recognition. Itís our responsibility to support these photographers creating diversity and expressing different visions. Being active at the Posthumous thread itís the best way to do it. Being active at the Posthumous thread itís the best way to protect your and the otherís freedom of being different. Thanks for taking the time to enter this challenge. Stay wild.

Very creative and beautifully executed. Judging by the crisp colors, that can't be the new breed of Polaroid film.

One of my favs in this challenge. I think I have seen something similar before, nevertheless this is pleasing to look at , tells a story and shows some skill - focused bt not oversharpened, well composed and exposed; even the noise, intended or not, works well here. bumping you up

Violation of the art rule! I know because Ben thinks the leaf is real! (Comment only.) P.S. I hope you like this at least a little. It really is an enjoyable photograph!

What creativity! I love this picture. Probably if I'd have done it, I'd have ruined it by trying to get the darks darker but this works so well. Great job!
