This was my favorite shot. I would have loved to see it ribbon (as I'm sure would've you!). So simple and yet so powerful.

And now that I check your profile, I see you're a fellow Minnesotan - for now anyway. Neat. :)

Okay....this is my new favorite. Simple. Elegant. Well executed. What more could I ask. Best use of the color pink I've seen so far.

Lovely image - simple but effective. Nice composition, I happen not to like pink but that's just a personal taste thing and not a negative against this picture.

I like this. It is different and has a contemporary sense although the pink is more "feminine" and old timey.
