Feb 08 Contest - Retouching/Manipulation

Feb 08 – Retouching/Manipulation

The graphic department has been tasked to create a high quality poster to advertise their client’s new motorcycle. Two images have been provided to work from. The background should be black and text will be added by the advertisement department later.

Prize: A copy of Image Doctor 2, donated by Alien Skin
Quote:
Restore. Retouch. Remove. Repair.
No one does it better than Image Doctor® 2.
Everyone loves the perfect photo. That’s also why everyone loves Image Doctor 2, the powerful Photoshop® plug-in from Alien Skin Software. Image Doctor’s unique software algorithms can save what would be the perfect photo from the trash bin while saving you hour upon hour of Photoshop work trying to fix it.
  • Restore old photos.
  • Retouch new photos.
  • Remove unwanted objects.
  • Repair low-quality JPEG images.
THE RULES:

1. Contest will run from 1 Feb to 22 Feb 08. Deadline for entries is 5pm EST.

2. I will not answer questions concerning the rules. Interpretation of the rules is as important as execution.

3. Tasks:
  • Use a single image or combination of the two to create a high quality advertisement poster
  • No text
  • Black background
  • Image(s) should remain as photograph(s). Do not turn into artistic graphics.
  • Only work with the images provided. Do not add other images.
  • Final image must be exactly 600 pixels wide and 800 pixels high.

4. When you submit your entry put your username in the filename (ie: tpaul.jpg). This is so users can save the images to a local directory and remember who did what--important when it comes time to vote.

5. Post your entries to this thread. Links will not be accepted. Please restrict your comments, questions or discussion to the Feb 08 Contest Discussion thread. Inappropriately placed posts will be deleted.

6. Only one entry per person. You can change your entry up to the deadline.

7. Voting will run from 23 Feb to 29 Feb . Only those with entries may vote.

8. Voting:
* Submit the 5 best entries (by artist name) in order, starting with your favorite.
* You cannot vote for your own image.
* Once you have voted, you cannot change your votes.

Finally, please remember that this is a friendly contest and suppose to be a learning experience. Tips and suggestions to help others are highly encouraged. Also please don’t limit your comments to just the top 5 when you vote. Most members are eager for feedback about their images, so remember to help each other out.
