In the last two days the following images have been re-categorized from Animals to Digital Art. The first one had already received a #2 for the day, in Animals, with a score around 760. The other two were re-categorized last night, all by the same person on the report team, Angelica Kezia. Hoping to avoid the drama Mr. Garces seems to enjoy by his fallacious actions, and hiding his real intent by claiming that somehow I am being treated with some kind of favoritism, I wrote Jasenka and sent her the unedited shot of the first high scoring image that was re-categorized, so she could show the report team the limited amount of editing that had occurred. She responded by telling me she would ask management for clarification. She gave me the same answer on a tiger shot that was reported and I never heard anything else from her or management. And now this latest fiasco with two more images, that were also high scoring have been re-categorized. The first one, which was moved for yesterday's contest, is slated to be #3 for the day in Digital Art. Since management has not gotten back to Jasenka, or just doesn't give a damn, I am deleting it in fairness to those images behind mine who legitimately belong in the Digital Arts category and deserve the points and awards. The two that were re-categorized early this morning sit at #'s 2 and 4 in the Digital Art category, and I will wait for Jason or some other member of management to give a clarification on their re-categorization, which I hope will come soon!
These are the images in question, the first of which, as I said, I am deleting before the awards come out at 11am EDT:

As for Mr. Garces, I have nothing but contempt for you. It seems you had a hissy fit because on of your shots was re-categorized and now you are taking it out on me. You have also discovered that if one wants to knock an image out of top ten contention, you don't report it as being a duplicated or even repetitive or very similar. One just has to claim it is in the wrong category and your job is done and the image will be moved! I find it ironic that you claim I and others who have been awarded top photographers for a number of years get special treatment, while at the same time all you have to do is report an image to be in the wrong category and it instantly gets re-categorized, especially if the person on the report team is Miss Kezia!
