Re: July 2008 Contest Discussion

I've now put this this in the Voting thread where I should have posted in the first place. I'll leave it here as well. Sorry for the confusion.

Lorraine

All the entries are amazing in creativity and execution. I finally voted for the ones that were photo realistic and had that “aaawww” factor.

1. Cassidy – I want to adopt him/her. Beautifully done in all aspects.

2. Ruzzez – Incredible work in combining the texture of the elephant skin with the zebra stripes.

3. Old Baldy – It looks like something out of Jurassic Park.
Excellent color blending.

4. Frank Lopes – Another amazing blend to create reality.

5. karinl – I’ll take him/her home as well. Great work.

Special mention to pixeltek. When I saw the dimensions required by this contest, I said to myself, a giraffe would work very nicely. Congratulations on using the elephant’s trunk to create that illusion. I would have chosen your entry in the top five, but the back foot wasn’t quite finished. Sorry about that.

Excellent work everyone,

Lorraine

Re: July 2008 Contest Discussion

Thanks Lorraine. That was my thought and why I did the tall animal, 'cause of the dimensions.

Actually, the legs are the front legs of the elephant in a walking motion. Yeah, I know, the leg in the back kinda got distorted but, oh well, I tried my best

Thank you, karin. I agree with your comment fully. To address the issue, I had added the bird to balance the composition and include a normal element for scale.

Unfortunately, I forgot to change my entry in the contest thread.

O yes, LonK, that does help the balance in your composition.

Re: July 2008 Contest Discussion

I'm back from my holiday , ready for the next contest.
Very nice and funny this one, I am sad I've lost it, it would have been a nice opportunity to improve my skills in this technique of combining photos (I must admit is not my strong part in working with Photoshop ).

You all had great ideas.
