My original idea for blue didn't work. I was about to bag the whole thing and not enter. Then I noticed these colored dice I had laying around. I placed them on a piece of paper and my light source was direct sunlight through the back window.

CS3 edits; smart sharpen, curves, contrast, saturation boost, resize and border (I hope it's not too distracting.)

White balance was on auto, and the more I tried to get the paper whiter, the more I'd lose detail on the dice. So sticking with it as a grey color. Predicting maybe a 6 or high 5 score.

My first entry with the K20D - IMGP0025

Creative use of the dice, lovely "flames", and just enough texture in the background to make it a little more interesting.

Nice ue of the color red, but the shadow just seems a tad distracting for some reason. The border on the top and bottom is a nice touch.

Interesting image, but it seems kind of gimmicky.
