Feb 06 Contest

T Paul should be back soon, in the meantime you'll have to put up with me abit longer.

As you can see, the photographer here (me :classic: ) didn't do a very good job. Twenty years passed, the negative didn't stand the test of time, and this 2-day old is now graduating in Mechatronics (insert two envious smilies here).

see attachment.

1. The Contest will run from 02 Feb to 21 feb 2006. Deadline for entries is 6pm GMT 21 Feb 2006.

2. 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 (with the pixels still wet :wink: ). As a guideline for working and voting, the two techniques should be considered:
Restoration - make the photo lok like new;
Portrait Retouch - make this into a great photo, but without altering the subjects.

3. Your final image size must be exactly 800 by 600 px, in either orientation. Other sizes will be disqualified. Also remember that the file cannot be larger than 100KB.

4. When you submit your entry put your username and the contest date in the filename (ie: byRo-feb06.jpg). This is so users can save the images to a local directory and remember who did what - important when it comes time to vote.

5. Post your entries to this thread. Please restrict your comments, questions or discussion to the Feb 06 Contest Discussion thread. Inappropriately placed posts will be deleted.

6. Only one entry per person, although you may change your entry up to the deadline.

7. Voting will run from 22 Feb to 28 Feb 2006. Only those with entries may vote. You will vote for the 5 best entries in order. (see voting thread for details)
Finally, please remember that this is a friendly contest and is supposed to be a learning experience. Tips and suggestions to help others are highly encouraged.

Ok - I'll be the first to take the leap and post my enrty. Thank you Ro for making me think! ;)

Tried to concentrate on making this a "professional photograph". This photographer would have been using softening filters and hand masking when taking the photo (purposely cropping mom's face to accent smile).

Improve it, certainly. Make it into a great picture, that it'll never be except in the eyes of the mother. (Criticism based on photo not subject).

I enter just so I can vote, and see if someone really can make this great.
