Land of the Giants
Contest Directions: The owners of a giant rabbit named Simon who was found dead after a United Airlines flight demanded that the airline pay damages, order an outside investigation and re-evaluate how it handles animals on flights. Attorneys for Simon's owners, who purchased him in hopes of winning the title of world's largest rabbit at the Iowa State Fair this summer, said they would take legal action if United failed to respond within a reasonable time.

        • Decrease the black level in the giraffe and add some reflection in the water and this would be the bomb!

        • Great Image, Tim! Congrats On the Silver Cup. Nice color pallet too. I never guessed this to be yours. As far a proportions go... I figure that beer to be exactly the right size!
        • Thought for sure Funkwood was back, Brilliantly done, Hits! Silver Congrats!
        • Thank you very much, DD, Bob, Champ and SS. I took to the more subtle enlargement and was surprised at how it allowed a relationship to form. Kerri nailed it in her comment. Sometimes the best discoveries are by pure accident.
        • Love the composition and really thoughtful of cheetah to let her finish reading and finish her beer before supper 😎
        • hitttss Congrats On the Silver !! This is my computer background
        • Thanks guys/gals. The beer is an attention grabber LOL You could tell the story several different versions. My original idea was to create a chop where nobody even noticed the giant elephant in the room because their attention was buried in cell phones. But, the source search was turning out to be a marathon quest. Then as if a gift from the chop God I ran across the Cheetah. It only required a head tilt and I swapped people with cell phones to a gal on a PC beer:30
          Thanks for using it as a screen back groundnd, Kerri
        • CONGRATULATIONS to HoHouse for outstanding support with his 33 entries!!!!! That is amazing output!

        • Great Work, Hidreley! Congrats on the Bronze Cup!
          Good to see you back!
        • Grats hidreley, this has a powerful depth of field!
        • Jeepers Hidreley, what happened? You dropped 114 Karma!
          This is excellent, better than that, even. Congrats on the bronze and wood.
        • Good one Hidreley, is that a kind of tilt-shift effect ? Looking good !
        • Hitspinner i do not know what happened to my karma, I voted as always! I need to recover!
        • Thank you all for the congratulations! I am very happy!

        • hidreley congratsss!! This has such a nice feeling
        • Great looking piece! Congrats on the BRONZE!
  • Dog Giant

        • I honestly thought this would win! Again, your depth of field is deep.

          [Edited by User on 5/17/2017 7:40:54 PM]
        • I thought this would win too. Totally excellent! Congrats

        • Then perhaps you should get another, yes? Thank you
        • Another great Image, Hits! Top5congrats!
        • Awesome water works, Hits! And Great Pic!
        • Thanks, just glad it didn't get DQed and can still stay up on the net. Though I don't think it rates on the search engine crawlers like the top 3 spots. For some reason Denlig's Kod doesn't show up. Leaves me scratching my head. Anyway, thanks, Champ, SS and Kerri... I am rather fond of the water effect. I finally insisted and erased enough to where I won. LOL It was a basta-d getting it to cooperate

        • 3rd to 1st to 30th then a bobble between 6th to 12th. Wish I knew wether it's because it is a lizard, or because they thought it's bad. That was one heck of a carnival ride! Lol I made it as REALISTIC as possible!

          [Edited by User on 5/17/2017 7:08:46 PM]
        • Ok I admit it, gave it a 7 only because it was a lizard. It most definitely was not bad, but also wasn't a mammal. Didn't give any non-mammal above 7 which was a mistake, because the (mammal) rule has since disappeared.
        • Interesting how he almost seems camouflaged sharing the same colour scheme as the buildings 😎
        • Champ, thanks for stepping up and saying something, takes balls. I didn't expect to do well once it was brought to my attention I messed up. If rules are not enforced, then they're pointless and I had no complaint had it been DQ'd and it should have been, simple as that. The fact that the rules changed has me concerned for future contests.
        • I wasn't sure PS if that was a good move or not, had several backgrounds but this one grabbed me.
        • Ha, thanks EDUENROJAS for the only 10 awarded in the contest! Lol. Sweet revenge! Lol
        • Amazingly good. Apparently needs tiddies LOL
        • That's it spinner, I was going to give it fur and ears!
