That makes my day. Thanks Don!

Regarding the focal point...I had the Lensbaby on and was walking behind the group. I was hoping to get one or two people coming around the corner, where the focal point ended up, but when I noticed one of our kids coming past the tree I triggered the shutter as he came into view on my side. Wasn't exactly what I wanted, but close enough. :-)

rule of art: what you want is never as good as what you might find

I saw a story about a family in this shot. That's what took it over the top for me.

I love what this does to the leaves. This hits a spot.

nice picture, but it might have been a little better if the focus could have been on the kid peeking out from behind the tree.

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.

I love the effect and I love the hidden observer on the left

I'm hanging this in the posthumous art gallery.

Great location and lighting. I like the fact everyone's walking away from the shot. I'm guessing this was taken with a lens baby. Nice effect.

I like the hurried motion feel here. Must be a lens baby. This reminds of the movie "Stand by Me".

I like this very much. It has a very portentous, Stephen King feel about it. Like something is going to happen in the woods that will change their lives forever.

It's amazing how you with focus/blur control managed to get this to look like a 3-D image with no need for special glasses. 8

even with a lensbaby there should be at least something in focus

Fun use of the lensbaby. Great sense of adventure.
