Wow !! my 1st ribbon , what a great New Year present. Couldn't have done it without all your votes.

Here's how I did it
1. selectively desaturated original image
2. sharpened / saturated slightly the colored area
3. cloned out the defects
4. Rotated the image
5. Cropped to get final image

Here's my original shot

Great picture Andrew. Help me to understand how you did this without getting a reflection of the camera. I'm just getting started with photography and I need to learn all I can.

Congratulations, and happy new year! I couldn't figure out how it was done either until I saw the original and explanation, and it looks relatively simple. It's a technique done many times but looks very original here. I don't know how you got the background so blurred at f9. The hand and ball must have been very close. Great job!
