Every DPCer knows the colors of the ribbons, so I decided to use them in my submission and connect them to a well known and very good cameras in my opinion. Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III got the blue ribbon, Canon EOS 5D got the red and Canon EOS Digital Rebel got the yellow one.

That was and is not my point, but I can see now that it is possible to understand the photo that way.

I agree that it would have been a silly idea, but that is just your understanding of this pucture. It was not my idea in this case. I used the ribbons as a known colored signs and decided to connect them with a very good cameras. The ribbons were supposed to be the cameras prize and not connected to any winning photos.

LOL! Very creative & fun composition! I wish the detail in the camera bodies was more sharp, but overall you've certainly nailed the challenge.

This makes me smile... :) Nice concept. You missed one more - what goes with a brown ribbon ;).

Though I like your imagination, I don't accept with your point that a better camera can give better results.

bit obvious in statement, kinda like a slutty woman, hard sell, but the point across. Well Done.
