I decided to enter this photo because I think it embodies the colorful and sometimes tacky 80's hair band look. (I'm so glad the 80's are over!) Not sure how this will be received by the voters since it borders on digital art. Hopefully it will be worth a few chuckles for those of us who experienced the 80's.

My daughter posing on the concrete she just finished decorating with chalk. I was trying to burn the background to make it more subtle, it apparently had the opposite effect. I had a shirt in the 80's that looked like that background so I went with it.

Looking at my 10's I saw I didn't comment!
This picture is GREAT! Colourful, love the face of the model.
It is also funny to see that she is just a bit taller than the guitar.
The only thing that I see that is bothering me is that her left hand is a bit to white. Newertheless, my only 10 for this challenge.

Simply a great image. The attitude, the lighting, the focus, the background, the outfit, and that lovely face with a definite sassy rebel look. The POV you chose is different and excellent too. One of my few favorites. Brilliant. I gave a 10.

Wonderful image that I am sure will be a keeper in the years to come. The colors are fantastic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Authentic looking from the processing to the color scheme to the graphics. I thought more folks would use the heavy post-processing from the 80's on theirs. Great job!

Cool perspective and altough the chalk lines are not punk at all (as far as I know) they do enhance that punk feeling. 9
