Entry into this challenge was decided upon at the last possible moment. Since I will never succumb to the belief editing is the only way to a good image, I decided a play for last place was most appropriate. And, I won. In being the best loser I am truly a winner. Some saw this for what it was, a play on words and then examined the image for its technical merits. I thank you.

In a world of blue ribbon boasting, I can boast I shot for last place and achieved my goals. Now, there is nowhere to go, but up!

Sorry - I just don't feel this meets the challenge by description. Funny photo though.

I like the off beat tie in to the challenge theme. I fear the DNMC police will vote this low, however.

Lol - I hope that's a lot warmer than it looks :- )

The water was so cold all his feathers fell off.

I'm sorry but this is a bit of a stretch. I can't even call it artistic license. Good luck.

A very fun and interestin take, you may just get hammered for this though!
02/01/2008 12:13:05 PM
LMAO funny. Old crow in a bird bath. Hahahaha!!

Humerous, yet somehow I think this isn't going to score well.

Sorry, DNMC at all, despite title. Not very sharp, and the horizon tilts a bit. I have to admit though that the subject is just unusual enough to make this eye-catching.
01/30/2008 02:57:00 PM
Hmmm really interesting. I have to give you some point for being creative.

OK, one simply has to wonder about the use of duct tape... A liberal interpretation of the challenge and a very fun shot.

Well, I guess you expected this
01/29/2008 02:45:41 PM
Why? why?!
01/28/2008 08:43:17 PM
LOL. I'm sorry, but I got to go low on this! The duct tape is a nice touch.
01/28/2008 03:59:28 PM
Uhmmm... Not quite sure what to say about this one.
01/28/2008 12:33:01 PM
Not right on so many levels
01/28/2008 11:41:51 AM
I don't see how this meets the challenge
01/28/2008 10:41:51 AM
funny title. but meets not realy the challenge "birds", IMO
01/28/2008 10:22:05 AM
Hmm the greater Crested diaper cuckoo

OOB, certainly. The shot is well-composed but a bit drab; maybe some increases in saturation and contrast ... or maybe I don't really want to see the duct-taped diaper any better than I already can!
