Blagojevich in Jail
Contest Directions: After two trials, an appearance on Celebrity Apprentice and a plea for mercy, Rod Blagojevich (Democrat) was sentenced today to 14 years in federal prison, after the former Illinois governor guilty on 18 counts involving the attempted sale of a U.S. Senate seat, illegal shakedowns for campaign contributions and lying to federal agents. Prosecutors asked for 20 years, but since the seat was not yet sold and no cash exchanged hands, Blago "got away" with only 14 years. Selling Senate seats ain't as easy as it seemed... Interestingly enough, former Illinois governor George Ryan (Republican), predecessor to Blago, was also convicted on corruption charges, landing him in prison for 6.5 years. Ryan gets out of prison in July 2013. One has to wonder if the courts lengthy sentence was meant to send a message for future governors.
Photoshop anything related to Rod Blagojevich getting sentenced and serving time in jail. E.g. show evidence that was used in court, or how Blago will spend his prison days - these are just some ideas.

        • Lord and Lady Black. Cute couple, and nicely done.
        • Nicely done hidden . . . one thing, you're top right microphone is casting a shadow as if it's flush up against the back wall, when the microphone appears otherwise to be in the direct foreground. The same applies to the Blago figure.
        • Way to go Pree...another Gold to add to the collection
        • ty D-Man,,, RICKY... pcrdds... Blago has a very interesting face!!
        • Great satire and 'shopping here, Pree!

        • Hahaha.....cool chop.....Blago and Bubba!
          Where's Bubba's belly-button tho?! lol
        • Thanks, it's right behind the belt buckle...I know, he's got a low one
        • Very nicely done . . . great lighting FX and perspective and my, what a nice view they have

          One nitpick: The wall in the corner looks overly blurred, almost like it's melting especially in contrast to how well defined the teddy bear is. IMO
        • Ty, good eye, I was messing with that area covering up an unwanted shadow under the shelf...I often wonder how much Little flaws like that affect a score or if voters are more concerned with humor, wow factor and overall eye appeal.

          I often observe voters engaging in backscratching rather than objective critiquing...which is OK I guess.
