Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

Zizounai: The picture looks nice, but it is very pixelated, the definition is not good at all ( 2 years and 356 days ago )
buzzy: This is a composite. The camel is not real. ("Don't use an image that has been altered by the source owner nor an entire work created by someone else." ( 2 years and 354 days ago )
buzzy: Seems that the people who make and enforce the laws see no obligation to follow them...Creating cultural division and disrespect for law enforcement. We see it all the time... ( 2 years and 353 days ago )
Zizounai: Buzzy it is not the first time. When the source image is given it is OK to use it even if it is a composite. The image is the same for everyone, so there is no problem. The trouble here is the quality of the shot, composite or not. ( 2 years and 353 days ago )
Drivenslush: I'm not sure about that ZuZu... it's a pretty big image (it converts to a 17 mb file... maybe you're downloading it wrong, it is set in a panoramic scale so it may not be downloading correctly... it's fine on my end
( 2 years and 352 days ago )
Zizounai: The resolution is only 72 px/inch on my download. If you look for details it's all blurry... ( 2 years and 352 days ago )
buzzy: I hear ya ZiZ! But ive been booted for less... Just giving perspective so in the end the site is strong and fair. This site has always taken input for value... Hince why its the only one that has endoured. I do agree that the image is not uniformly clear and appliying a new composit addition will cause artifacts that Bob would take exception too! lol Let us know your secret Slushy, with out a direct source download, pulling the image from here can only be 72.. ( 2 years and 351 days ago )
buzzy: its defiantly a huge image but not more clear than 72. the BG is not even in the same game as the FG... to ZIZ's point ( 2 years and 351 days ago )
Drivenslush: The only thing I can think of that might be going wrong is if you are uploading the file into a PS version that is run on line. When I download the image it's only at 2.8mb, but when I move it to my PS Version (White Rabbit) (don't laugh, it works fine for me) it converts to a 17mb image. This makes it a 56 inch by 22 inch 72dpi image. It can easily be converted to a 300dpi image in the 15 inch x 5 inch and the detail is tolerable. Though after my coma, I see things totally differently so I could be pretty off kilter and have no clue what I'm talking about. Waka Waka. ( 2 years and 351 days ago )
buzzy: And , well I'm not triying to be picky, but the light source on the 2 composite subjects aren't related. The challenge there is, i guess... The artist will have to assimilate an artificial environment and hide the original lighting cast. I do see the challenge! lol ( 2 years and 351 days ago )
buzzy: COMA?? NOOOOO!!! not good bro!! hope your alright, then again your "twisted" has always been entertaining!! lol ( 2 years and 351 days ago )
buzzy: DONT CHANGE!!! ......i do usually convert them to 300 before hand, nothing a lil 'depth of field' blur can't fix! ( 2 years and 351 days ago )
buzzy: you can amp up your "crazy"... i wouldnt mind! lol
( 2 years and 351 days ago )
Drivenslush: ACK.. I can't amp up my crazy, that would cause a collapse of the universe as we know it
( 2 years and 351 days ago )
buzzy: LMAO!!! whew.... your alright!!! take care man!! ( 2 years and 351 days ago )
BWR: I'm with Zizounai. The image has "blocking" in it except where the camel and foreground is. Also has that oil painting look as if it was taken with a cell phone. It probably would look OK on a small monitor or a cell phone. ( 2 years and 349 days ago )
Zizounai: If you scroll on the camel, it looks as bad as the rest of the landscape. ( 2 years and 347 days ago )

Howdie stranger!
