I am hoping I have thought outside the box on this challenge. I made a collage of newspaper headlines then made my own red headline in Publisher. Stuck it on the mirror in my bedroom and took the shot using natural light from outside.

Minimal processing - levels, contrast, auto colour, saturation to increase red in letters.

Hoping for over 4.5 at this stage.

I think this is a wonderful idea, but I wish that it had more depth, more 3 dimensional

Like the idea, but maybe the use of a different angle, laying the camera flat to the poster, taking some words out of focus, would work better here IMO.

I see your point but just doesn't make for a particularly exciting photo, sorry

This doesn't feel like photography. It's more of a simple poster.

Not very interesting, very flat.

LOL.....well, that does get the message across alright! Only problem is, you're likely to get clobbered score wise by those who want to see some photographic genius piece. ;) 7 from me for the message alone!
