Re: November 2008 Contest - Colorization

I wish you would choose images from sites where one does not have to register...

Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

I don't really understand the point of this contest. All the entries will look exactly the same. Where's the fun in that?

Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

I think the point is to see who best is able to deliver what was asked for.

Sure the colors might be the same, but the hues will not and the execution most definitely will not be the same.

Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

I think the hardest part for me in this contest was actually picking the background. Trying not to copy someone elces color, even though you wanted it "first". Not that using blue and blue or green and green would be bad, I just want to be diffrent.

I must have tryed 20 diff colors before I got to mine, PAIN.

Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

I feel your pain igot2pman, though its surprising what colours actually compliment here.
Personally the masking of the hair is the pain for me.

Hi Oz
I think you should rotate (well not you personally).....600w X 800h I believe means 'portrait' view, be a shame to have it disq'd for that.... gilbert
