Sofia, This is your first ribbon??!! The quality of the lighting, processing and composition are top notch! Nice coincidence that your scarf matches with your "ribbon"... Huge congrats...!

This one image is a great example of what you can get out of a entry level SLR and a kit lens, with a brilliant lighting. Great job!
