2.5 hours before roll-over and it looks like I will finally get the illusive score of 7.

As soon as I saw the challenge I knew I wanted to do something like this. The inspiration for this came from the work of Michael Godard who's work I saw some 15 years ago on a trip to Vegas.

This entry is the single most time consuming and complex entry by far that I have submitted. The final PSD file ended up with over 70 layers. I mad a lot of mistakes and had to re-shoot elements multiple times to get the perspective and lighting correct. Learned a lot and hopefully I'll remember to use it in the future.

I think that the only reason you didn't bomb us all is the "flatness" of the strawberry's legs and arms. The rest is so magnificent!

I'm thrilled about your ribbon!
