OMG! I can't believe it! Finally a ribbon. I will have happy feet all week!! For all that asked. I used watered down poster paints and a brush to get the jesus. I thought it would be funny. There was a Virgin Mary on Toast that sold on eBay. Do a google search for Jesus toast......it's a hoot!

It is a real miracle, you got a ribbon!
Partial cropping of surrounding objects directs the emphasis to the toast. Try selling prints of this on eBay.

nice work! good lighting, props and arrangement. crop is a bit tight.
BTW: coffee looks better, when there are some bubbles on top, a drop of dish washing fluid works wonders.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/17/2007 12:58:21 AM
Toooo funny! And technically well-done. I'm gonna hazard a guess and say "' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/17203.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/17203.gif', '/') + 1) . ' scalvert" :-D
