You're an evil man byRo

Just one question you say
Quote:
Portrait Retouch - make this into a great photo, but without altering the subjects.
Does that mean we have to keep both subjects in the picture? Because that seems in conflict with
Quote:
This is a Restoration and Portrait Retouch: The final imge should look like it was shot yesterday, by a professional photographer, straight out of the camera
The poor lady is missing half her head, now I'm sure we've all done a bit of transplant surgery on a missing body part - but half a head it going to be very noticeable Particularly to the lady in the photo

Evil, me?
Nah, if I was evil I'd say "That's your problem. Deal with it!"

..well come to think of it I am going to say that - but in a rather more educated way (of course).


Yes, you are stuck with (less than) half of the mother's face. You can't take it away completely, nor can you complete it. Should be interesting to see how folks get around this.

OK, so I am evil after all.

I think the only solution is enough absinthe to see Kylie as the absinthe fairy (Moulin Rouge reference )

You say we are stuck with half a woman, ?
But in the rules you say
Quote:
3. Your final image size must be exactly 800 by 600 px, in either orientation.
I would take this to mean we could crop to 800 high by 600 wide. If we do we must loose some of the picture, can't that be the Mother??

Peter


I agree with the others you are showing your nasty side with this one
