I can't believe how many of you are making me look like my sister!!

Well, I probably can, we look very alike for half-siblings. Mind you she's in her mid 30's, a good 10 years older than I am!!

lol

May I take this oppourtunity to introduce myself. Hi everyone, I am Camile, lol not really. I just happened across site today and love it! Lol
My poor husband has lost me yet again to a forum!

I look forward to much much more interaction.

Question regarding the contest. I think I have the concept down, but as there are so many wonderful yet different entries I am confused.

I for the first time in my life submitted something, but now wonder if the below image would have fit the criteria also? I didn't think so, so I didn't submitt it!

I am not a professional, so don't judge my attempts to harshly.

Glad to be here!

probably no would be the answer - although as you can see from the entries it is all relative, lol. My take is that they need to look like anyone took the picture - it is more about making the subject (moi) look a bit nicer, like the shot taken by anyone was taken at a good time of the month (lol) and when the subject was looking pretty

But in saying that, I like the one here

1. Because there are SOOOOO many problems with my mug that too many people saw it and felt so sorry for me, that they couldn't not work on it

2. Because everyone loves me so much as a member that they just had to

lol

I have no idea, but its either a massive insult or fantastic compliment!

Red face Did I exceed the criteria?

You are a brave girl. I wouldn't put my picture up here, none of them!

I am interested in seeing the everyone's reaction to whether or not I am within the rules. To me it looks like a snapshot, just on a good day, so to speak. I think its 'age appropriate' make-up and attire rather than 5th avenue. (Or is it 'age appropriate' when I was YOUR age?!) Despite the addition of the poney tail, it doesn't look like she just got back from the salon..

I finally had to call it 'done' and submit it. Not being a pro, I am certain to have spent far too much time on it. My lack of a polished process caused all sorts of clean-up problems and I still left some smuginess and imperfections. Besides, I felt like we were developing a relationship, and I am far to old for you sweetie.

LOL Well there's also that part about me being already married....hehehe

I don't know if it's too far. It still looks like me which is a step in the right direction. Even so I think a lot of people are struggling with stopping and how far to go, and there are just so many things that can be fixed in that pic, lol.

More entries than the previous months contests, because required retouch not too complicated?
