The former Blue Ribbon image in the "Fences V" challenge has been DQ'd for inability to provide an original in a timely manner. The photographer is far away from home and unsure when he can return, and does not want to totally deprive someone else of their place on the podium. Congrats to our new ribboner and HM.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way.

I didn't mean it should change the image status, but I do think it was honorable of him to recognize he should give up the ribbon. Others before him have fought for more leniency.

I think that's part of the point of this thread ...

You could post the image (thumb) in this thread? That would probably get it more looks than anything on the front page ...

That's the kind of guy Girish is.

I've talked/posted with him over the years and always found him to be the consummate nice guy.

I am back!

Thank you so much for Robert (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/30861.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/30861.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Bear_Music) for understanding!

Thank you Penny (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' PennyStreet) and Jeb (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' NikonJeb) for keeping me in thoughts!

Some background on this, I was at home and got a call and I had about 30 minutes to step out, so just picked my backpack and left and didn't think that I should look for the status and upload the image. during the time I was not monitoring my emails so didn't realize. Later on one my friend pinged me and said that I hit first place but didn't have the image so couldn't do much. Robert did ask me that he can wait if I have return date (this is really nice of you!) and since I didn't so didn't want to hold him or any SC and at the same time didn't want the next person to get opportunity to move up.

Also noticed that it was Jostein's (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' josaa) first blue so kind of worked out well for him too, he got his first blue so I am happy for him!

Winning/loosing is just a view of mind, if we just keep ourself happy in any situation, we will win all the time!

I submitted another one! Let's see some day I might spot a blue again :)

You are certainly an inspiration, Girish. I hope everything worked out well for you.

Great example of what I mean when I tell people that there are excellent folks on dpc. World-class - both as people and as photographers.
