Whooopsiieee, I think I didn't understand the challenge perfectly. I thought stationery was something you write on. Well, maybe it is.

I got this crazy idea the monday before the voting began. I bought 400 yellow post it notes and used about 300 of them. It took me about 3 hours to stick them on to the wall and write some words on them. I thought the words wouldn't be readable when I would save it in this size but you can still read some words. Most of the words are in Icelandic but few of them are in a language which I call Djaborian.

The hand is my brother's. I lit it with a flash. I'm very proud of the postprocessing. I think I did good job there. I used color balance, levels, hue saturation and curves. I love the color balance tool. I love how I can twist the colors.

Yippy!! A ribbon and NO dnmc comment. Thanks everyone for the votes and the comments.

There you are again :)
Aren't those post-it notes? Sure looks like Stationery to me. This was one of my top5 favorites from the challenge.
Congratulations once again.

edit:

I see this actually came first, after the 10 challenge. So another congrats on this being your first ribbon.

I wasn't sure if I was going to vote for the images in this challenge. Then I saw your picture and it will make it well worth it... Def. a 10...this is an awesome shot and a favorite of mine.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/09/2006 06:13:41 AM
Interesting, could use more color, something eye catching, bright nail polish? A different light scheme could work wonders. What is above the to do or not to do note? Is it a snake or reverse question mark? It is distracting from your nice photo. A few changes will bring you a long way. I do like your concept.
