The idea behind the Posthumous Ribbon is to encourage you to break the rules, to find new and different ways to express yourself. To free your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come, to laugh at world and at life, not doing what others are expecting you to do, but just following and listening to what's in your heart. DPC itís a wonderful learning place where everyone should be supported on their way to be a photographer. A special attention should be aimed to those working hard with different views and approaches to photography, those not aligned with the mainstream taste and receiving no recognition. Itís our responsibility to support these photographers creating diversity and expressing different visions. Being active at the Posthumous thread itís the best way to do it. Being active at the Posthumous thread itís the best way to protect your and the otherís freedom of being different. Thanks for taking the time to enter this challenge. Stay wild.

Such pretty light, and I love the concentration on the faces. I like the reverse DOF (soft focus on the subject in the light).

Beautifully done. Not only a warm and sincere candid moment, but executed nicely in what had to be challenging light.

I like the way the light hits the boy. Maybe a little too much negative space on the left for this type of image but I do like the overall look of it.

What's wrong with your camera? Caden and Laine are so blurry. :P
