The end of fun presents was a sure sign of adulthood, or of not being allowed to remain in childhood. Went for the old photo/sepia tone look because fathers receiving ties from their kids seems like such an age-old concept.

For the edit: levels, curves, softglow, curves, crop, levels, saturation, curves, saturation, old-photo, contrast, levels, curves, border, scale.

Great idea, poor lighting (could be the grayscale conversion). The lighting will keep this out of the top 10, but it really had potential.

Well, I hope you don't get a tie this year!

The concept is perfect, as is the composition. I'm not crazy about the sepia & deckle edged look, though.

Good take on the theme. The test is, does it stand alone without the cation, most don't this does.

Tones seem a bit flat to me. I'm a sucker for contrast though. Good execution on a symbolic idea.

classic. Ribbon in my book. I would nitpick about the tone. It's not my favorite, but the rest is excellent.
