OK then Gary will have to dosify my request (I promise not to keep on replying to avoid being "scolded" for spamming )

Yes, I think we'd best let this thread get back on topic.

Re: January 07 Contest Discussion

Gary, sorry that I'm a little too late ---

But I wanted to say that I've skied at Whistler. Luckily, when I was there we didn't have as much snow. It was more the Northeast USA (when we used to get snow ) -- packed powder. Whistler's a beautiful place.

Newbie Re: January 07 Contest Discussion

Hmm, how to put this without "asking for clarification"? I'm really just interested in what everyone is thinking on this contest. It says colorization "and nothing else"... so how seriously are you guys taking the nothing-else? Just use color blending modes? I'd love to add some catchlights and enhance some contrast in areas, but this is my first contest and I'd hate to go outside the bounds of the rules. Thanks for your opinions in advance!

Re: January 07 Contest Discussion

I can't remember any disqualifications apart from image size and filename rules, but I'm guessing that those who submit 'nothing else' pics would tend not to vote for a 'something else' pic. If someone wants to do a bit more maybe this discussion thread would be a good place to post them?

Re: January 07 Contest Discussion

lilsip,

Doug's given you excellent advice. In ths contest we're colorizing, and not retouching, the photo. Changing the original might possibly work against you in the voting process.

Re: January 07 Contest Discussion

Thanks, guys! Yeah, I was thinking votes might sway toward eye-catching (no pun intended) "extras", but didn't take into account that you can only vote if you've submitted one of your own. Too bad about that blinking one, though, huh?

T,

It's the hazel eye color. I'm still not sure about that. The second most difficult decision was to remove or not to remove those stray flakes of masacra on her skin under her lashes. I decided to remove them.
