Doreen, yes, I did post an attempt -"I ain't skeered"

Lorraine can you tell us more about the organization you are helping?

Lynnette,

The organization is Operation Photo Rescue http://www.operationphotorescue.com/

Quite a few members of RetouchPRO are involved.

Thanks for the interest.

Re: Aug 07 Contest Discussion

and just to respond to lorraine's post about OPR images, we've had several operation photo rescue posts in the restoration forum. it's perfectly fine with me to post these there when you need help with one or want it looked over. just make sure you have the owner's permission to do so or, just post a small portion if the copyright is an issue.

Re: Aug 07 Contest Discussion

Just to add my 2 cents worth about Ant's comments, I thought this was to be a learning experience for beginner to expert photo retouchers and for us to have fun. Any time anyone puts any effort, their best effort, into doing a task is not "turd" work to me. Some of these people work long and hard to make the submissions look as good as they can to the best of their ability. It doesn't matter what kind of photo is submitted, it is our task to follow the rules and put forward our best efforts. Who cares about all of the other stuff? Hats off to all of the people who have entered any of these contest . . . just continue to have fun. I know I do! Let Simon's, "errr" Ant's comments be reserved for magazines like Cosmopolitan, GQ or Glamour.

Re: Aug 07 Contest Discussion

I'm wonder how the votes will come out when there are so many uncalibrated monitors. Some of the entires are so bluish or redish, how will the be judging? This includes mine too, I happen to see my entry on another monitor and it looked darker. Just a thought
