Used dish detergent on the UV lens. Then, used a lens cleaner wipe thingy to clean a tiny circle in the middle.

Cropped, resized, desaturated the yellow a touch (the gold was a nasty color).

The point of the picture is to convey "remembering" high school and how much fun it seems "now."

This shot really stood out when voting. You did a good job with the soft focus. Great shot, Karma!

Nice concept but, the photo is a little static. I find it kinda boring. The black background is too gray.

i buy rings like this from quarter machines at the magic wok... and then use them for 30 cent worth in poker games... everybody is a sucker for the bling ;) mine look less fake than these though... (j/k of course)

I like how you made the centers of the rings appear sharp and the rest of the image slightly out of focus. I would be interested in knowing your technique for doing this without the use of Photoshop.

I like the effect and its use here, but I'm not sure about the placement of the rings, they might look better closer together or maybe an element is missing, like a yearbook or something.
