Thank you very much to the individuals that have stood up for Justin against the name calling and personal attacks. You will never know how much we appreciate that.

FACT 1) Justin read the thread where a member of the site council states that a photo should "LOOK LIKE TWO SECONDS" as opposed to being two seconds. This is no fault of Justin. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT POINT THAT IS CONVENIENTLY OVERLOOKED AGAIN AND AGAIN.

FACT 2) Justin went to great lengths to get this photo. He leaped onto a slippery boulder in the middle of the raging water. He is enamored to his photo and not the ribbon. It is a great photo and he deserves to be proud of it. His bad luck is that it did ribbon. As it stands he would have been happier with a lower score and placement but he is not going to DQ his photo based on irrational sour grapes that don't take into account the so important thread mentioned in FACT 1.

FACT 3) Justin has received many many PMs from very credible and respected photographers telling him not to self DQ. Afterall, why should he have a photo DQed if it wasn't a DQable offense?

FACT 4) Justin did attempt many two seconds shots from his slippery and dangerous perch and NEVER had a premeditated intention of taking anything other than a two second shot. REPEAT: There was no premeditated intention of bending the rules or looking for loop holes.

FACT 5) Character flaw, cheater, etc. etc. etc? He has more character than the "grown ups" that are viciously attacking him will ever hope to have in thier lives. At 17 he stands before a howling raging mob, reads every post they spew, clicks it as helpful and stands by his guns. Character flaw....laughable and disgusting at the same time.

FACT 6) Yes, I am his father. Sitting in another country, far away, unable to comfort him, sad at the treatment my son with an incredible track record at DPC is receiving and proud to tears at the way he is handling himself and not giving in to unjust wrath. Believe me, the EASY ROAD would have been for him to self DQ but he does not take the EASY ROAD ever.

FACT 7) This post is not for the comments that disagree with Justin posting the photo or feel disappointment. These statements and feelings are understandable and respected. That is much, much different the the labels and deeper insults that have been thrown his way. I say SHAME ON YOU to those people.
