I love this :) And it's probably one of the only photos that meets the challenge in the top 10, therefore should have won in my eyes :)

My out-and-out favourite in this challenge. Originally gave it a 9 and have just bumped it up a notch to 10. Excellent bokeh and absolutely stunning image all round. Well done... hope to see this ribbon. Deserves the blue IMO.

I smell a ribbon here. This is a fantasy, a dream, a cloud. It is a poem and a whisper and a wink. A fave

This image reminds me to appreciate the lightness of being just within a simple bubble anchored to the world and yet surrounded and encompassed by the glorious and ethereal light. I love this image! (I'm going to sneak at least one "BRAVO!" in here because you really deserve it!)
