in my opinion, too many of the top ten really captured the essence of the process. the better photos are lower down.

I just sent the picture to my son (it is his family). He loves it! Thank goodness he has a good sense of humor:)

It's definitely a one-off :-)

I agree, Penny. I laughed out loud at several of them.

And then rest of us poor sods are going to be viewing the top images on the DPC main page for three weeks! Some of them I did find quite funny. I had to vote in spurts.

I think the DNMC cudgel will be wielded on some of these. I actually liked more than I thought I would from this challenge.

My take from this challenge - I learned how to draw in photoshop with a mouse. Before this challenge I did not know smoothing feature of the brush and how well it works!

Score 4.9xxx

I forgot to add that there are some that did this remarkably well!

The one thing that confused me was this was actually a lot more difficult than it looked. When you looked at the original (vs the tutorial), the original was pretty darn good in it's fail. The tutorial was a lot more of a hack.

It makes wonder even more if the whole thing was a setup. Otherwise how would they have achieved a well done fail?

It's been a bizarre process. I don't know whether people are voting on whether I failed badly or failed well! :D

Did not vote yet but took a quick glance and must say that some of the entries hit the nail on its head and they're quite hilarious which I think was the point

The members probably won't get their heads round the idea when voting... so just enjoy it.. see if you will end up dead average, or hope for the Brown..

Bad is good! I'm winning!

I also started editing, then I came to my senses [in other words I read the instructions] and just entered one of the images I like best... hehe

No way is it an improvement or enhancement to the original image.
