Doug and Marthig --

I agree LOL!!!

I've never seen so much hair in my life.

You've both done a great job on your high glamour makeovers.

This contest was a puzzle for me. Is it a retouch or an advertisement for RetouchPRO, or both?

Lorraine

Ro,

Thanks for stepping in for T. This contest is extremely hard and very satisfying. I've already learned so much from participating.

Hi Lorraine thanks for your nice comment.
I was just admiring your submission, I like it a lot, nice idea about the light too!
I think the mentioning of RetouchPRO is just a sort of "hurdle" our dear byRo added as well as the size being exactly 800 x 600

You know how these mod types are, always bossing you around and exercising authority --specially byRo

Just in case someone misinterprets; the above is just a JOKE and nothing could be further from byRo's always nice and helpful attitude.

Regards - Martha

Yo Bro Ro...

I just downloaded my first copy of photo-6.. I needed to repair my desktop wallpaper.. and suddenly was pulled into a new art-form, like a northern pike takes a minnow... Then I went a searching for the best photo retouch forum.. and there you were...

At my first attempt at retouching a nude, I got a little carried away with the photo-tools, then clicked negative, and came up with a piece of magic, that I just can't stop looking at... All those blues and purple fires... my favorite colors...

Anyway.. I'm wondering.. Are you considering contests for "distortion art"..?

Lorraine, first, congratulations on you entry. Very nicely done!

A retouch yes, an advert no.

Besides a glamour retouch, I wanted to put some more spice into it.
T Paul had passed me some guidelines that Doug had set out, and I liked the idea of a "showpiece" and, seeing as how this is a Web site and not a magazine, I then fixed the size as if it were a (small) web-page.

I knew that a landscape layout would require a bit of imagination to fill up the space. So I figured that specifying a word or two would be a good idea.
There were some other words but Doug has to watch his (our) back on copyright issues so I stuck with just "RetouchPRO".

Marthig!!! Up to your bedroom, now! No supper for you, young lady! (just too, OK?)

Cosmic, welcome to RetouchPRO Have a good look around the art forums. I'm not sure how much will translate to Photo(shop?) 6 but you can be certain you'll find a lot of interesting ideas.
Art competitions, and expecially abstract art, are a lot more difficult to judge, but if you look around the Challenges section there's a lot going on there.
And as Danny says, the most important part is to have fun!

Ro and Marthig --

Ro, thanks for the clarification and your kind comments. I asked the question because, as I was trying to make up the background composite for my entry, it became more of a challenge than the retouch.

Marthig, Thanks for your clarification as well.

PS -- I'm sure that everyone realizes that you were joking. I'll buy lunch today
