Thankyou for the voting consideration, and always…for the kind words. They mean a lot coming from this talented group of photographers and digital artists.
Some have asked below on the process used. It felt like it came together without too much pain.
It’s a series of (6) images.
The Fist, the flag, the camera, and a slice of downtown LA – these elements were all extracted and all had Posterize Edges filter added in PS. Then on the fist and I think the camera, I stroked the edges.
The radial stripes were made from a photograph of a Fujinon backfocus chart. Which made it simple to make a channels selection and change the colors.
The ‘slarcle’ (the universal symbol for No—which I just learned today is the name….I read it on the internet…so it MUST be true) was created using a No Smoking sign I bought at HomeDepot. Again, I made a selection in channels to extract it onto it’s own layer. Then the shape was extruded in PS 3D.
I make simple breaks in the slarcle using the polygonal lasso tool, which created ‘broken’ sections. PS3D allows you to split the extrusion so each ‘break’ could be manipulated individually. Allowing me to give each section it’s own slight rotations along all the axis. Once the angles were decided, the layer had a Posterize Edges filter applied.
Finally a concrete texture was applied to rough it up a bit.
Again, thanks for looking, thanks for the voting consideration and thankyou for the comments.

The design of your entry is simply perfect, it supports the message very efficiently and cleverly. The broken sign is a fantastic idea. I love your choice of tones as well. Congratulations on the ribbon.
