Great work, but this was a colorization contest. It's disappointing when entries don't follow the specs, ruins it for everyone. This will probably win, but it will cost the site and other players.
Sorry you feel that way Icy. But I followed the rules of the contest. I colorized a b&w photo of HH as part of my entry. The rules did not preclude one from going beyond that. Others did the same by the way.
I have to agree with both Manosart and IcyAllEyeCan. Great work indeed, but out of contest rules. It clearly states: "To pay tribute to Harry, Take Any B&W Image of Harry Houdini and Colorize It." That's it. It doen't say "Photoshop Harry Houdini any way you wish". For me the emphasis on 'Colorize It' is clear.
You would have to disqualify half of the entries in this contest. I (and lots of others) didn’t violate the instructions. We followed them to a T.
Hidden is right, the instructions say colorize any "Image" of Harry, intentionally leaving it open to composite. Probably should have been more specific in hindsight.
By the way, Hidden, this is a fabulous Houdini tribute.
Thanks for the clarification, I really was not trying to cause controversy here.
I have to agree with Icy, if you have been doing this a while you know that colorize a B/W image means just that, and nothing else.
This is Harry Houdini's first tribute done on FN and I decided to change it up a little. As a fan of Harry I wanted see what members would do with him but also to colorize it. I just didn't make the instructions clear enough, but wasn't expecting this uproar either.
Again, sorry to cause controversy, but people are inferring “unwritten rules.” I agree that entries need to follow the instructions and the site guidelines. (Which this entry does). Beyond that, creative interpretation should be allowed. In other words, everything is legal that is not against the law.
this is beautiful altho I would have liked to see more of Houdini
Love the concept congrats LunaC. Because of previous colourising competitions of Black and white images. I also restricted myself to that. If I'd known I would have been more creative.
Congrats on a Well Deserved Win, Darn good one...
Excellent chop, thought Hitspinner was back,this one is one of your finest. Congrads
Congrats on the gold and a sweet chop, LunaC. Sorry your post got hijacked.

San Francisco is her District, it looks like a 3RD World Country, why would she want Illegals to pour in when she lets Americans live in DANGER on the streets, Drug needles and Poop everywhere, they don't want "STRAWS" given out, but "NEEDLES" is OK. PROOF, IT'S FOR "VOTES".

A magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat. What is distressing you, Lu. An explanation of your comment would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Great as always splat,congrats on the silver
This is probably the most disappointing contest I've ever participated in, here at FreakingNews. I work hard to make my image good and keep the masking edges clean. All I can do right now is shake my frick'n head.
Thanks Debbie, your comments are very much appreciated. ☺
Congrats on the Silver (don't be disappointed, you got an eight from me).
Your work is always flawless Splat.I get what you mean about the edges,yours were immaculate.Try not to be disappointed,at least your not me.Mine was at 4th all day,and I ended up at 5th again.I try really hard,but I just don't seem to get there.Its frustrating cause I'm happy with a wood.Its upsetting and depressing,but it is what it is.I noticed no one votes anymore.There is 30 entries,but only 10 voters.Some with. 1 karma,so basically 8 voters.Cheer up Splat,you are a chop hero to me
Wonderful Job.. You know how these things go, at best a crap-shoot when there are others close in quality. I would have voted but did the hospital thing yesterday and fighting pneumonia. I managed to make a simple chop and passed out from the codeine . Glad I didn't enter this one, don't think I could have beaten yours or K9 . Congrats
I hope you get better soon Hits,I'm sorry your sick.I had double pneumonia and it was a b#tch.I noticed you didn't enter,I was worried about you.Glad you are ok.Get well soon,I miss your freakish mastery
Thank you Debbie, it's good to hear someone understands what I'm saying. The forum is probably a more proper place to address this issue though. So I'll just let it drop for now. Keep up the hard work, it's paying off. I've noticed a huge improvement in skill. And your style is also catching on in favor. They kinda go hand in hand like that. So stick with it and always shoot for the Gold. I kinda like being a hero. Thanks, Debbie.
Thank you Bob, Andrew, and Paul.
Thanks, Tim. I hope your feeling better and continue to improve. I have few friends here battling severe colds and bronchitis. It's a bad one, and just keeps holding on. Thanks again and hang tough, mate.
Congrats on the silver, Splat. It's like Alice in Winderland turned freaky. You know how to make a show.
Hugs, Andwhat. TY Yep SS, 'tis the season. I hope you feel better too. This thing came out of nowhere and dropped me. I'd never go to the hospital otherwise. By the way, you captured "Freakshow" and the spirit of it with sublime perfection in this chop. I meant to mention that last night but was a bit ding-batty.
Thanks Tim. Super Compliment. and tanks for the fave Thanks, Vlad. Thanks Martijn.
Thanks, Karar (K9). Double Gold, Great Idea. Double the voters and comments too, and we'd be in high cotton then. Not sure what the high cotton will do for us, but it sounds cool I hope you realize my disgruntlement is in no-way directed at you. You have a wonderfully creative and inspiring image. I immediately did research on 'how to create a cyborg' the moment I saw it. I just love it. Keep up the great work my friend.

January 15 is National Hat Day - the day set aside to pay a tribute to one of the most needed human "inventions" - the hat. Hats may be worn for safety and protection, religious reasons, ceremonial reasons, warmth or fashion. In the Middle Ages, hats were an indicator of social status. Structured hats for women began to be worn in the late 16th century. Millinery is the designing and manufacture of hats, the term “milliner” derived from the city of Milan, Italy. The best quality hats were made in Milan in the 18th century.  To observe National Hat Day at Freaking News, design hats with any unusual shapes, or from any unusual elements. Here's some good examples. Many thanks to SteveGSQ for the themepost.
