What else could i do? This obviously would be an awful emergency!! No more DPC?? And because of squirrrels??

Argh!!!!

Yes, it's a real squirrel, but no, I wasnt foolish enough to give him a match. :)

Unfortunately, my monitor will never be the same. :P

It's also funny how many people thought I gave away my identity by showing my home page. I thought it was great fun that someone actually went and looked. They were fake entries. :)

Thanks for the kind votes and the wonderful comments!
__________________________

I'm not sure -- but I think the DQ is because of the images on the home page.

Right before I entered, I realized that the pictures on the left of the screen identified my photos currently in voting. So I grabbed pictures and pasted them over. Since they were obviously not images that were in voting (for anyone who looked), I figured it was existing artwork. So I just grabbed any old photos.

I guess I goofed. I needed to have grabbed photos taken during that week.

Ah well. Such are the vicissitudes...

every time i see this image i cant help but think of what a dumb DQ it was, clearly the intent was to disguise the photographer, not enhance the image.

surely they could have let it slide.

I would blame it on the squirrel, so unrepentant, butter wouldn't melt. All the time he knew that rule would be totally misconstrued. Arsonist!

Sorry about the dq Wendy...I prob would have made the same mistake not even thinking about it. It was a great shot, however.

That is one mean squirrel. He burns your monitor, but not enough to destroy the evidence. Either that or a squirrel sits on the site council.

Great image, but craziest DQ I've ever seen.

WHAT?! Arg. SERIOUS Arg going on here.

I'm so sorry.

I hope it's clarified and restored.

seriously? that's why you were dq'd? [head smack] Viewers expected those little images on the computer screen to be your photos from this week?

Congratulations, Wendy. Great humorous image - though it wouldn't be funny, would it. Lol that anyone needed to verify your identity!

Congrats Wendy! Very well executed!

Congratulations Wendy! Very fun idea, and a great execution. I especially love the melting monitor and the orange cast on the squirrel.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2012 10:34:36 PM
Well done Wendy! I thought this was yours, but you never know anymore. Really great job on the critter holding the match. Very convincing!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2012 05:12:52 PM
This is a cute and well executed, but certainly doesn't meet the requirements of the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2012 02:56:34 PM
I'm SO glad this was rewarded with a ribbon. It's fabulously created and completed.

Yep, confirms what I always knew...squirrels are revolting ;-) Great job Wendy and congrats on the red!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2012 09:41:35 AM
You've really took my narrow assesment of what can be done with squirrels and expanded it incredibly. I've come to believe its not about the squirrel, but the Wendy behind it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2012 07:24:27 AM
The look of that squirrel is priceless. You did a terrific job. Congrats.

Whatever you say about these circus clowns of yours they really are a hoot. Top marks.

That matter-of-fact expression just cracks me up. Congrats on the ribbon, Wendy

I laughed out loud when I saw this - very clever and a really nice job of editing. Should place in the top five. No technical issues to speak of. Well done.

Hmmm....Squirrels....Wendy?....very funny and well done :) Very convincing melting effect and flames. Having looked at all the entries now I think you will take the third place and yellow ribbon with this one. An 8 from me.

I just tried to identify the two images on the left hand side of the monitor by comparing them to the images in the challenges still running but i don't see them in there. Odd...The bottom image of the two should be your entry in the "Grunge" challenge of which the results are now known but i can't find it in there either. Very strange....what trickery is this?
I don't think it's Wendy anymore as i just checked through Wendy's portfolio and can't find those two images in there either. Also Wendy's entry in the "Grunge" challenge is not the bottom image visible on the left of the monitor.
But of course it's also possible that you photo shopped 2 other images in there knowing some folks would try to identify them and link them to you. Big mystery anyway :)

PS. You may PM me with the explanation. I have already voted so that won't change anything.

Yes, they are.

04/20/2012 04:24:14 AM
Ha! This is hilarious! Given the squirrel, I'm guessing this is a vawendy shot. I hope this ribbons, because my picture is on the front page in this! I'll get an extra week! :) Great story and processing!
