How to accept a DQ gracefully.............hehehehe
Sep 13, 2010

I just received one

Out West-Hwy 287 Wyoming has been disqualified from the challenge called The Western United States for the following reason:

I like your image, but it doesn't fit the challenge very well. Explain to me how this makes people think of the west, with cowboys, wagons, etc

Host's theme suggestion:

Show us an image that makes us feel the Western United States. Cowboys, cows, horses, wide open spaces and wagon wheels..

My reply to the host: Wide open long straight roads, space, big dramatic skies, few people, says the West to me.............not just cowboys and wagons, that's my interpretation of the West. I guess not yours. My mistake.

I could argue that there are no wagons, cattle or cowboys in some of the other images submitted, question the hosts sanity, eyesight, literary skills when he wrote the challenge but I don't. I move along to another challenge that I may have an image suitable for........ no big deal.
