This contest is a test not only on skill but on patience, maybe even more so. Anybody who participated here have got to be one of the most patient people in the world. Congratulations to all! Well done.

2. DougColwell- Always a fan of your work.

3. Littlecoo- I love the soft hand-tinted look of your piece.

4. Cazubi- Gotta love the floozy!

5. Northernshadow- Beautiful work on the rug- and I love the cooler colors on the wall. Just added that extra spark that pushed you into my top 5.

1 littlecoo: nice clean up and soft pastel colours, in keeping with a hand-painting - nicely done

2 Soleah: nice sharp picture retouch and grain removal - how did you manage the grain removal?? Very nice, colours just a little strong for me

3 Gary Richardson: grain removal and technique

4. twinjn: nice colorizing and grain removal

5. Doug C. execution, completeness and color


Grain/noise removal played a big part in this one- well done everyone!

Votes for June Contest

Hard one to judge, so I voted mostly on the impression they had on me.
  • 1st Soleah Had the most natural feel of all the entries, with a well chosen colour palette.
  • 2rd Twin BNJ Liked this a lot, and it was close between this and Soleah as to which got top place. Personal taste, and a slightly sharper image by Soleah determined the order I chose.
  • 3rd Lorraine Image seemed to have a predominantly pinky tinge and was a little too soft, otherwise beautifully executed.
  • 4th Cazubi A little undersaturated, otherwise it would have got 3rd over Lorraine.
  • 5th Doug Colwell Would have given this 1st place had it not been for the massive over contrast that had been applied, which ruined an otherwise impeccable job.
