Re: Mar 08 Contest - Photo Manipulation

March 08 – Photo Manipulation Contest
Spring is just around the corner so let’s bring it in! Download the provided image and turn the bleak photo into a springtime shot.

Download Image: Winter Wonderland 1 from the Stock.Xchng.com; taken by Mieke de Leeuw. You will need to register (free registration) to download the larger file size.

New to the contests? Please review the FAQS


Prize: The Creative Digital Darkroom By Katrin Eismann, Sean Duggan. Donated by O'Reilly Media

Quote:
Book description
This tutorial takes photographers beyond the quick tips and gimmicky effects of many digital photography books. Author Katrin Eismann -- an internationally acclaimed artist, bestselling author, and gifted educator -- offers high-profile work, including her own, as examples for teaching photographers how to use the digital medium to create, edit, and output images that reflect their true vision.

THE RULES:

1. Contest will run from 4 Mar to 24 Mar 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:

Quote:
*Turn the winter photo into a springtime photo
*Keep image as a photo
*Do not add text
*Final image must be exactly 600 pixels wide and 800 pixels high.
*Any item added to the photo must be copyright free.
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 Mar 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 25 Mar to 31 Mar . 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.

If Memory Serves

Alas, the dense blankets of snow finally thawed,
and the valley flooded as ne'er before.
To wit, Papa built that quaint little dock house,
that we might enjoy the balmy spring days that followed.
