johndownunder johndownunder
@TheShaman Yep original et used to do your portrait Sean as seen here [img]
johndownunder johndownunder
@rockyjob This is the original ext also used for a portrait of TheShaman with a varition in color.I dont know who the original artist is but certainly a fantastic image. [img]
johndownunder johndownunder
@TheShaman If you remember Sean i did 3 pics for the chop TheShaman contest the other two were entered but this one i just sent to you personaly it was not entered in the official comp.
TheShaman TheShaman
I remember. I like this image too... but really MOST of it isn't yours. the actual source for this contest was just put into it is a few places... wish you would have listed this source off the bat. I think many of these votes are for work you didnt do.
TheShaman TheShaman
*linked... sorry I'm a bit sauced. No worries John. Just a dumb daily contest. no harm, no foul
TheShaman TheShaman
I actually prefer my chop you did, because you did way more work to it.

@TheShaman Having read the clearly defined description any voters supporting this image should have cleary understood my input.I never claimed any credit for the great ext and identified it clearly as such.Guess the comments box will be busy.
johndownunder johndownunder
@All VOTERS Re votes cast for this pic. If any voter did not understand cleary my description and the degree of work i did which accompanied the external.Please advise me by commenting and i will be glad to delete this entry from the contest.

Now that i saw the original, which in fact was not altered at all and it's 99% of this image,I'm a little disappointed.I hoped more of YOUR work has been involved in this work,but now falls into copy/paste section and killed my excitement,unfortunately.
johndownunder johndownunder
@Bogonet If i may correct you the original i had stated was slightly modified this applied to the butterflies being altered in color to match the source element. I also clearly stated i had added the source to an ext image.
johndownunder johndownunder
@Bogonet As you have expressed dissapointment after voting for this image it will now be removed out of respect for your viewpoint.
johndownunder johndownunder
@All voters Thank you for your support of the image Captivating.I had clearly defined in the description my work input on this image.Owing to adverse comments i have chosen to remove the image and would like the moderators to delete it.
bogonet bogonet
It's nothing personal and I dont want my vote back, I choose to vote because I really liked the image. Honestly, it didn't even cross my mind that your intervention in this imagine it's so light, because I knew that you could provide some good work
bogonet bogonet
hence, the disappointment...
johndownunder johndownunder
@Bogonet there is nothing personal in it Bogo but as my work level input has been misinterpreted in the description i think it's only fair to other artists in this comp to remove my entry in the event it has received votes because of misinterpretation.
johndownunder johndownunder
@Bogonet Sorry you were dissapointed in this case i merely used the source to try and enhance a beautiful image.I will make sure in future that any description i give is more comprehensive to avoid any confusion or misconceptions.
johndownunder johndownunder
@All voters Following a request from moderator Eve i have returned my previously deleted image Captivating to the comp.For clarity my work 0n this pic involved alteration to color of butterfly wings in ext and addition of source image only .Thanks JDU
Eve Eve
Thanks for reposting this image JDU. Nearly everyone in the history of PSC has heavily relied upon an external at one time or another. Have they been called out on it? Sure...sometimes. Your author's message should've tipped off all voters. My vote stan
Eve Eve
My vote stands. :)
