Wow, the ribbon is a real surprise! When I went to bed the score war 6.65 so I was quite sure of a top ten but only in my dreams I could hope for a yellow. It's wonderful to wake up like this :)

For the shallow DOF in Red I entered a similar shot:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_991275.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1508/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_991275.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

During that shooting, one of the outtakes was similar to this shot but I liked the one I submitted more. When the yellow challenge was announced I immeditaly thought of trying once again the shot I hadn't submitted a few weeks ago.

My fear was that someone could penalize the shot because perhaps they remembered the other one.

At the beginning of voting, after 25-30 votes I was at 5.90!

After that negative peak it began to climb and never stopped until the end.

Thnk you!
