This is very close to a real headline. These are migrant workers in a tulip field, who have faced ~80% layoffs due to lack of demand for tulips during the pandemic.

This photo was taken in better times, when workers were in high demand for tulip cutting.

Well, taken, should be a headline. Processed very well as not to overlook the darkness for the workers, you kept the workers as the subject. I gave this a 10 and it was well deserved. Hats off to you!

This photo is so good but so sad! With his head down, he even fits the sobering headline! Congratulations on your ribbon for this!

I think you were robbed of the Blue ribbon.
In my humble opinion of course.

This image, due to fine processing, could have been taken in the 1930's American Dust Bowl. However the headline came to be attached to the photo, it's timely and heartbreaking. As this transpires, I imagine I can hear the champagne flutes clinking in the house upon the hill. To write the op ed, so pardon me. Anyway, it's a very handsome photo
