I had just applied for Permanent Residence (that I think we will get!) and had our passports out when I thought of the "Dead End " challenge. The "DENIED" is cut out and pasted on the passport before the photo was taken with a tripod with inside lighting.

One click enhancement in iPhoto, then background color lightened in Photo Essentials.

Once I had a similar idea about visas for On the edge challenge. It did not finish well, but I hope yours does better. I like the DENIED text on the shot. The background is wild, I would use somewhat more official colour and a tighter crop (no matter if edges and parts get outside the photo) and a lower angle to make the shot more interesting and gove a perspective.

At first, I thought perhaps you added the DENIED text. Since your photo has been validated, I think maybe someone else wondered the same thing. I like your concept, but for me, it's the choice of background color that made me give you a lower score. I wonder how this would have looked with a darker background instead?
