Deepening shadows gather splendour as day is done...

Taken from Twilight Time by The Platters - the first record I ever listened to on my grandmother's wind up record player....

WOW - I'm so surprised and happy to have been voted into this elevated position. A very big thank you to all who helped this image along the way...

This was such a simple composition with two pieces of coloured foam laid on top of each other and the skeletal leaves just placed strategically on the foam. I've learned one thing that in future I will probably try to lift the leaves or whatever away from the background to minimise the noise from the foam structure - investigating buying a piece of non reflective glass for the job. Any other suggestions gratefully received...

Thanks once again one and all ... Annie

Are you kidding? The nois-ish effect on the purple portion of the background adds something to the piece to be desired. I like this added texture.

Although I'm not on the boards for ever, so much as submitting a photo, this amoung many of the new ribbon winners just might have inspired me enough. Thank you for that.

Congratulations - lovely artifice - smart and clean. I like the purple noise. (Incidently, I met the guys who wrote Twilight Time about 30 years ago, when I was visiting my grandmother in a South Florida retirement village. They were headlining the local TV show.)

Congratulations on the ribbon. I like purple and yellow together.

I'm so pleased for you. I am really surprised it did so well not because of the quality of work but I'd thought the noise would be knocked down. Well done.


At first I thought it was noise, but it's more likely to be the quality of the paper.

Love this one. Wish the purple was a little more purple, but never the less you are one of my top picks.

This is one of my favorites. Simple, effective, with pleasing color. It is a piece of art. I can see this hanging on someone's wall. 10

Very nice! Wonderful creation of a 3D effect with pleasing lines and colors. My top 5.

Very cool! I am curious to know how you did this. It looks like a colors adjustment in post, which is something that I'm working on learning now.

Very imaginative. I like the grain/noise. Others here won't.

Unique and creative. You executed this set-up well and the colors are right on. There is something that seems missing though . . . I wish I could figure out what . . . 7

Love the delicate details and the faux perspective. Lucky you to have found (or clever you to have made) those colored leaves!

This looks like a graphic rather than a photo. Very interesting.
