Ro and T_Paul,

here's a thought... we've had a bit of controversy on rules in the past. thankfully, no one died over it that i know of. but something about reading these posts on this new contest got me thinking. what if the rules for the new contest were posted a MONTH ahead of time. no image, just the rules. any clarifications of said rules could be hashed out AHEAD of time and not when someone has already put in time on working on the actual image. this might save some headaches and frustrations. the actual image to be worked on would only be posted at the start of the contest, but the rules would be up a month ahead of that.

just a thought.

Craig, that would be a good idea. T_Paul has already put forward an idea for Feb06, maybe it will be possible to antecipate something.
However, I do feel that without the images the doubts may not arise as they do when the folks start working.


PS. This month wasn't possible, I got permission for the image and the OK from Doug at the very last minute.

I understand that the intention isn't for a strict before/after, but are there any objections to using the before as part of the graphic, while keeping the new glamour shot as the main element? As we are including text I'm looking at this as graphic composition, rather than just a glamour shot. Does this seem reasonable?

Caitlin, as long as the glamour version is the main element, I wouldn't rule it out.

Yes indeed, the text is part of the challenge.

lkroll and OnAir, you need to change the layout of your images in order to fit within the 800 pixels Wide X 600 pixels High fixed size set out in the rules. Otherwise they will not be entered in the final line-up for voting.

Couldn't agree more Doug. In view that she is so pretty, can't understand why they had to cover her face with all those loose strands
But then if they had send her back to the salon we wouldn't have this contest !

You did a good job in tidying her up though I like it, as well as the font for the RP legend. Great submissions so far !

Regards - Martha


LKroll and OnAir see the advise of byRo and Chrishoggy above !!

Thanks Martha, I like yours too - nicely done. I'm guessing our model was photographed after the dance.
