so i should add some detail... the girl Danielle is one of my bestest friends, 10 years ago she was one of my other female friends best mates and i knew her but no where as close as i do now, so i lost 6.5 stone(91lbs, 41kg) in pursuit of this lady...... 9 months of hard work, getting handsome pursuing her and being nice and everything i though she wanted and i made my move asked her out and she said no hahaha lol but i gained so much from it not only health but life experience confidence funnily enough and an amazing friend that we laugh about it all the time, so i hate to disappoint the not convincing commentator but everytime i see her i get a big hug and a kiss from her, she was a rock when i split from my lads mum and was always there for me so im pleased this photo did well :)

thank you to the jury and the favourites :) oh please
not another acceptance speech
why not thank adam and eve ,so that it was possible to get this great honour

I'd be remiss, however, in my role as jury "chairperson", if I didn't mention the major contribution of ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

' vawendy, who cobbled together a "reporting system" within our jury thread that allowed all of us to keep track of what was being said about every image, and that greatly facilitated Don's ultimate task of gathering and publishing the commentary.

Basically, this jury ran so smoothly I had practically nothing to do :-)

I thought that that's what most chairpersons do ;)

first of all ,i have to thank the jury who spend a considerably time
to argue among themselves as what is art
in fact, they should have placed mirrors in front of them just to see themselves
in this very serious task at hand

i am sure in about 1week nobody will remember what this august panel decided
' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jmritz for president

You're on quite a tear today. If you're not careful, people will think you're upset about not winning. Or maybe they already do.

We did! How did you know? What I couldn't understand was why bear had that piece of spinach between his teeth -- could tell because of all the mirrors -- and STILL didn't remove it. Then I realized that it was his modern art interpretation to get us thinking. :P

A perfectly wasted spinach comment. So much for trying to be pithy.
03/23/2012 06:44:27 PM · #38
WOW! I don't know what to say!

Thank you....

Never did I imagine that I'd win an award for Art... especially one with so many GREAT examples of art... engineers are known for being very artistic :)

Anyway, I am truly surprised and honoured. WOW!

Thank you to the jury, all the commenter and those who faved my photo.

I really don't know what else to say.... THANK YOU. You've made my year!

I loved the spinach comment. It got right to the pith of the matter.

If you think spinach gets to the pith, you should try asparagus.

Thanks to the judges for their time and effort. There were so many good pictures and I can only imagine how difficult the picking process was. For myself, I am pleased to say I found many of my favorites amongst your picks. Congrats to all who garnered their deserved prizes.
Thanks also to everyone who entered the challenge, picked through a years worth of art and came up with a worthy image. It made me so happy to view your choices.

Thank you judges, thank you voters and thank you contributors. Surprised, honoured and appreciative.

no one ever worries about Wendy... When the jury went on the champagne hay ride on Wednesday night, Anita pushed me off an no one even noticed! Luckily, there was a troop of squirrels, and we stayed up all night playing poker and Chinese checkers, so a great time was had by all! :)

Thanks very much to the jury! I especially appreciate your sharing your comments with us.

It helps me to see that there's nothing universal about art. :)
