Re: May 07 Discussion Thread

I've just had a look at all the entries so far and am very impressed. I have almost finished mine, just one more componenet to get. My partner and I have been taking photos and I have used them to make what I have so far.

I have posted my entry. If you would like to see the pictures which made up my entry they are here

I must say thanks to my partner for her help with taking some of the photos and her encouragement along the way.

Re: May 07 Discussion Thread

lorraine, take a look at your shadowing again. it's a bit inconsistent across the boards. in particular, check out the chair, table, vase and flower pots.

Congratulations ScubaMargie, I liked your image, it does look like one photo . The only thing that -to me at least- seems not to quite belong is the Ivy. There is something about the perspective that makes it stand out.
Loved the sky reflecting in the window.
Also liked the idea of posting all the images in another place, I will do that too, probably a smaller image with the credits all in one page. Will see, hope you don't mind if I copy the idea

Re: May 07 Discussion Thread

Thanks Martha for your comments. I will have a look at the ivy again and see what I can do with it.

You can put your pictures in the same place as I did if you like. You'll have to sign up to post pictures but it is free and easy. Go here and in the left hand column is the gallery. I have quite a few pics there. If you have any problems or need help just PM me, I'm Margie at the site, and I will help as much as I can.

Re: May 07 Discussion Thread

T.. I think you've created a real winner in this month's contest. It's both a challenge and fun to work on. All the entries so far are the same but different. Everybody bringing their own taste and personality to their entry. I learned a lot about light and shadow working on mine and found many ways to improve my masking and compositing skills. Just getting the pillow to sit naturally and comfortably in the chair was a lesson in Free Transform! LOL

This one will be hard to judge too. :-)

Re: May 07 Discussion Thread

Thank you Margie for the offer to posting the images. I will probably use one of the (free) sites I have to post material for forums, as in this case. Again thank you so much for your kind offer
Good luck with the Ivy's perspective

@ DeeDee - Totally agree with you about this contest, let's hope we could get another one in a not too distant future

Congrats T-Paul !! and thank you !!

Martha

Re: May 07 Discussion Thread

I also agree with you Swampy that this contest is a real challenge. Half the battle was to get all of the images together, and then struggle to get them to look natural in a new evironment. I loved the whole process. I also am enjoying seeing all of the different interpretations of the simple sketch.

All the credit goes to Doug Nelson for this month's contest idea!

Re: May 07 Discussion Thread

Cheers for Doug's idea then and a hug to T-Paul

Well I didn't want to open a new post THIS IS a special page I created to show the pictures I used in my image and assign the proper credits.
