Interview of the Merry Bowmen
 
 
Deakins:
Hi Soldiers, welcome inside the hall of fame! Where do you come from guys?
 
The Merry Bowmen:
As you can tell from our merry faces, we are The Merry Bowmen of UVIGO. We are noble outlaws living in the UVIGO forest who steal watermarks from the Frenchmen and give it to the poor and the oppressed. Well, we actually didn’t give the watermarks to the poor yet, but we promise to do so, along with a basket of wild strawberries.
 
Hale:
Are you connected to other soldiers involved in the BOWS-2 challenge?
 
The Merry Bowmen:
We’ve heard of a William Tell from Germany or Austria. He might even be from Switzerland. They say that these people are really good at shooting apples off a sheep’s head.
 
Deakins:
Was it difficult to reach the Hall of Fame?
 
The Merry Bowmen:
By our troths, it was! Why did that guy -we don’t cayre who he is-take off his shoes in our forest? That penetrating and lasting stink didn’t let us concentrate in aiming our arrows.
 
Deakins:
Did you use the same arrows for the three images or was it a special sharp each time?
 
The Merry Bowmen:
We applied the WhoSh (Wholly Shoot) attack with different parameters.
 
Hale:
Which aim was the most difficult to shoot ?
 
The Merry Bowmen:
Relatively speaking, shooting that poor, lovely, fluffy, little sheep was very difficult. We’re actually more into seafood and Padron peppers.  Did I already tell you that we like to stand up for the poor and the oppressed?
 
Deakins:
Have you some fun entering in the fight?
 
The Merry Bowmen:
We hadn’t had so much fun since that Nottingham fair.
 
Hale:
Are you completely addicted or are you relax and confident?
 
One Merry Bowman:
I’m addicted to thinking new ways of shooting. Then, I go to the site and try, and… that stink again.
 
Deakins:
What kind of prize would you like to get if you win the contest?
 
The Merry Bowmen:
Forget the two fat steers or the Arab horse. A sports car would really win a reputation for the contest.
 
Hale:
Yes, and you have no idea what it is! Last question: in your opinion, what will be the average PSNR of the best soldier’?
 
The Merry Bowmen:
22.83 dB
 
Deakins and Hale:
Thanks Merry Bowmen !
