I don't think any of us can argue that the Old Yeller entry is one hell of a photochop, possibly the best this week. But the problem is, he didn't follow the rules of the contest, plain and simple, which is why he got the monkey. I mean, I could go into more detail about what a historical figure is, but it's been hashed and rehashed so much that it's a moot point.
I know the judging does not have to be completely based on "popular opinion" -- but doesn't anybody else think this is a little funny?
They say it every week that they can make up the rules as they go along. If you don't like those rules, then don't bother entering and complaining about it later. There's no hard and fast rules to woot photoshopping contests, plain and simple.
Mnementh's other entry was so much superior to the one picked... it isn't even funny.
The "pixelvisions" login will never win anything... and it has been officially proven during this contest.
I'll sugarcoat this: your entry didn't exactly capture what Vlad would do with rolls of paper. Are they sharper than spears? No. Lighter? Stronger? Faster? Deadlier? No. It just didn't capture the essence of the contest well enough to deserve a top spot over those that won.
Look at the entries again, people... and carefully read my comments. If you still think I am full of "it" or myself... then you are spineless sheep. I will continue to fight the good fight.
Well, I guess I'm gonna have to call myself a spineless sheep. We all have differences of opinion, but you've made yours too vocal and ignorant for me to see your side of the story. And exactly what good fight are you fighting? You're not swaying anyone, you're just making yourself look like a fool. You're losing the battle and at this rate, you certainly aren't going to win the war.
