Well it’s time to vote and this will take some time with so many entries to review. Remember to make sure you have the most current version of the entry as many changed throughout the month. If there is an edit tag at the end of the post, then most likely the entry has been changed. Also when viewing the images, make sure you view the full image and not just the thumbnail. Furthermore make sure the full image is completely opened as many browsers shrink images to fit within the screen view. If you place your mouse over the image and a box with arrows pointing out appears in the lower corner, this indicates that the image is not full size and you need to expand the image to regular size. Just click on the arrow box to perform this action.

A couple important things to remember about the rules:

1. You must VOTE for the top 5 entries. Participants that do not submit their top 5 WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

2. This was not a Photo Art challenge. The glamour portrait was to remain as a photo. That doesn’t mean you couldn’t add, subtract or change items, it just means that the quality should still remain as a photo.

And as always, when you vote try to include some things you especially liked about your choices…what made them stand out, what impressed you, etc. This is a learning experience!

Finally, Caitlin has kindly offered to post the images on her server for easier viewing. Once I have the link I will add it here.

First to contribute and first to vote. LOL

Since this was a glamour touchup and not a paint contest, I leveled my opinion on the following (though I really liked one other, but, to me, it looked like a painting so I had to adhere to the rules in my voting):

1. Doug Colwell
2. soleah
3. Flora
4. smats
5. karmaelea

Note, votes will be tallied as they come in so any changes after the fact will be disregarded.

There were alot of awesome entries here! Congrats to all who entered and to those who place in the voting!!

My votes:

1st - Faustina
2nd - DreamyPix
3rd - TPaul
4th - Caitlin
5th - Flora

Faustina's entry, in my eyes, is absolutely beautiful - WELL DONE! DreamyPix is a very close second, losing out only on the background - for me it just does not say glamour. TPaul's is lovely also, but I thought her nose was altered just a bit too much until it was just not her (but this is just nit-picking really - it's a lovely retouch! And I love her hair in this one!). Caitlin's was also an issue of the background, I just thought was too distracting and doesn't say glamour to me. It was very well executed however, so great job! Flora's I thought the coloring and all was beautiful, but I thought her hair on the side that was replaced was lacking something. Other than that a very well done retouch!

THis was very hard to call on many accounts, and I thought everyone did a very good job!

Great job EVERYONE!


(PS - Thanks Caitlin!)

Just wanted to make people aware that there was a problem with the photo album and one entry (pjulich) was accidently left out. I've just fixed it! (Please please use your name as the fiilename is per the instructions - 'portrait7' is not very meaningful hence easily lost!!) Sorry for the mix-up

3. Cazubi - plain BG - good job on face
