Caitlin, I wouldn't put much stock in the Wikipedia definition. It's typical of a work written by a preponderance of fifteen-year-old boys. (Which is one of the reasons I stopped contributing there, but that's another story.)

To me, and I think to most people, glamor photography is Vogue and Cosmopolitan, not Playboy and Penthouse.

Yes, you can change her clothes. The main rule to keep in mind is that you must keep the image as a photograph. As long as you do that, you will be fine. So get as creative and glamorous as you want.

I have a horrible feeling I'm being made fun of here and I don't know it!!! What does AFLAC mean - it's not in the same realm as RTFM is it??

gen,

dont know if you read the discussion thread or not, but your two entries are against the rules. you're only allowed one. also, the overall image size you've posted is quite large. the entries are supposed to be as close to 800 x 600 pixels as possible.

i believe you can enter one image and change it before the deadline, but only one entry overall is allowed.

see contest rules for certainty on this, though.

Craig

Hi all !

Have just posted my "masterpiece" , after struggling for almost a week with the hair and the loose strands ! I hope it does not come out too light in other monitors, mine tends to show colours "toned down". A funny thing, I tried to use a different colour for the background but the only good one was in the beiges scale, I know it complements the eyes and hair colour and the black of the dress

I used some "doctoring" in the base of the nose, added eye shadow, extended the lashes a bit and "plucked" the eyebrows to make the nose look narrower. The rest involved several blending styles, a few added layers with just flesh colour and of course last was the background for which I used a glass stock photo, and added a lighting effect.

Please let me know if there is anything special anyone would like to know.

After posting mine I could then look in detail all the variety of interpretations so far, and they are all just great ! Congratulations to all !

Regards - Martha

P.S.: Craig you have not posted an entry yet, guess it's on account that no sharks or fish swimming by can be added ? Oh ! of course they could be passing by in the background Rgds M.
