Ken McCoy from Orlando-Daytona Beach, FL, United States

Beautiful bold colors - the black background really serts them off. Au naturel or Photoshop?

@Ken McCoy: I erased some of the background detail (this is a crop from yesterday's shot) and as you can see, did some processing with with the tones and colour. I'm not an expert with that kind of thing though - used Picasa and Paint Shop Pro, which I find very user-friendly and fairly idiot proof!

Best koinobori shot I've ever seen! I love how you work the black and show that you're not "afraid of the dark" in the photo.
