Well I thought the best way not to meet this challenge was to meet another one. In the most dire way possible. It's the first time I've actually sought to make a truly awful image (it took me longer than preparing my actual cool colours entry!) and frankly I am proud of the results, although the naff title and the deliberate misspelling of 'their' caused me considerable pain!

RAW conversion (WB was practically tungsten), noise added, boosted saturation, resize to 300 then up to 400 to get the rubbishy quality. And I tilted it as the horizon was too straight!

POST-CHALLENGE: Wooooooo I got a brown ribbon without trying! I'm sure I shouldn't be this proud of myself!

Hehe. Good joke on us. I think your title should have had three exclamation points!!! Surely your special ribbon should be even browner than the others? ;-)
