Rush to put together at the last minute. Aghh...there's already over 300 pictures already submitted! Took a piece of frosted plastic with hanging letters and my daughter sleeping in front. Colored gels over lights behind the sheet of plastic.

Shot in jpeg tethered to my PC with all the standard post work: crop, increase sat, levels, NeatImage, resize, sharpen, save for web.

Hope this does well!

Great creativity and fantastic use of colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the colors you used, but it took me looking twice to notice the person at the bottom. It would have helped to make them stand out somehow.

I love it!!! It would make a great print too!!!

Interesting picture, but I think the added letters distract. I'd like it more without the letters and perhaps cropped at the left end of her head.
