Inspired by the success of my entry in the yellow challenge last year, I attempted something similar. Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_633915.jpg

This was originally shot using yellow Post-its. Tried just about every color imaginable by changing the hue, but settled on this as my wife thought it looked the best of all.

Wouldn't be surprised if some felt this was "over-processed" but this is the effect I was looking for, something that looked almost computer generated, yet not that perfect.

PP included: Conversion from raw, curves, clone, hue/saturation, noise ninja, resize, usm, add border

-Thanks for the wonderful comments and personal best. Was hoping to break a 6.0; never thought it might score so high!

how coll is that to receive yellow ribbon for the yellow paper arrangement, and the red ribbon for the red one! Now you only need to make a blue setup to finish it off :).

Oh, and congrats on your current May 2010 FS winner!

Ohmygoodness. This is unbelievable! Who'd have thunk post-it notes could be so breathtaking. But it takes a brilliant mind with genius creativity to pull something like this off. I'm glad it won you just reward and recognition :) CONGRATULATIONS!

I think this one might ribbon... And if not, it will be top 5 for sure! Great shot! I love the frame!

This is another one that I like the first time through, but has gotten better and better each time I look at it. I think being in with all the bright, loud colors of the other shots makes it look, at first, a little dark and not as interesting. However, each time I went through it stood out more and more. I like it very much! - 9
