This shocking red hair seemed appropriate for the challenge. My guess is that it won't be red enough compared to the other shots in the challenge, but I try to use people in my shots whenever possible.

I loved the expression and pose of this dancer.

Post processing:
Lightroom - fill light (used quite a bit to try to compensate for the harsh noon sun/shadows), clarity, blacks

CS3 - curves, border, save for web

I liked this one. It seems like she's cheering for me, Just-A-Mister-E!

After being exposed to the radioactive chicken a la king in the school cafeteria, Frank would go through a terrible transformation whenever he got angry.


You get my blue shoehorn for injecting a little humor into the challenge, even if I had to decide for myself what it meant.

Wish the background could have been less cluttered, particularly by the guy with the red necktie. Perhaps stepping to your right a bit would have helped. Red skirt, necktie, and hair (nominally, although rather orange here) and red on the boxes fit the challenge, but that expression (snarl?) makes the image less appealing (and doesn't communicate "strength" very well, if that was the intent).

I like this, like the composition and the rockstar quality of the girl.
