Hard to pick a fav among this series Dave. All are fabulous! What draws me to this one is the sense of movement conveyed by the scattered rice.

These are all terrific, Dave. The crisp, bold colors and simple design elements make them standouts. I still like the first of the three best, but not by much :)

G'day DAVE!

What an eye catching and incredibly strong image you have created.
The red/black/white works so well, the subject matter is quite a surprise and the scattered rice grains a wonderful touch.

My warmest Aussie congratz for the EP and FINALIST Awards.
