Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1197682.jpg . My image that didn't get entered due to an illogical error message when trying to upload. It probably wouldn't have done well anyway:) but I did spend some time on it. Good practice I guess!

Thank you all for the support of the image, your comments made my day!

I do have to say even though it did not ribbon, it did make the front of my personal profile page. I had a blast creating this series and the shoot itself took a little over an hr.. and wasn't sure if I would have the PS edit done on time because I had spent so much time on it. There was way more I wanted to do with it, but wasn't sure on what to do more or different to make it better. I had over 30 different edits with lighter, darker, creamer backgrounds, grungy backgrounds, it was insane!

I would really love to see on how you would add your own twist to what you have done different, especially the background part of it. With my Gel lights in the backgorund it kinda over exposed a bit on the middle part of the scene just a bit so I was not sure on how to fix it without it looking too underexposed. I did have 3 images for this and one for the background (thank you Ken for that suggestion from an another edit I had) then 1 each for my subjects.
I used 2 Speedlights with 1 rogue gel light.
This was the entry

These were my outtakes which I really, really loved, But I didn't think it was up for this challenge and not enough PS work...
I almost just used hook by himself, then I created an image of just Tinkerbell. My models rocked it! They had the costumes for when they really did play Hook and Tinkerbell locally at the theaters so it fit the challenge perfectly, and a week before I asked them they were wishing to break out these costums for fun. All costumes were handmade by the mom. The hook was made custom made out of steel and that thing was heavy! This was a Father and daughter.

Come to say my models loved all the images that were produced and I am still working on about 20 other shots which I am taking through PS as well, again having issues deciding on what to do with this background. It is why I am quiet on the forums because my nose is in tons of PS tutorials at the moment. Tinkerbell was also made from 3 images composite
