Re: May 09 Contest Discussion Thread

The rules for this contest clearly allow for items that exceed normal retouching.

"You can:
- remove elements from the photo
- change the focus by cropping it differently
- reposition items
- change colors, etc. "

With the exception of the couple who used textured backgrounds and brushstrokes, I don't see why the rules for retouching are being discussed.

In my opinion using a severely limited palette goes beyond retouching and into photo art, but since the rules clearly state "change colors" it is allowed in this exercise.

I'm guessing that's a compliment? If so, thanks.

Oh BTW, you might want to revisit your entry. Note rule 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.

Re: May 09 Contest Discussion Thread

Finally got around to redoing my entry. Thanks for the heads up; Joeven, TPaul & LonK. I'm new to this and when I read the rules didn't realize that there are FOUR kinds of contests- one different one each month. (So embarrassing to admit but maybe I'll save another newbie from the same mistake)Those sure were some rusty, yucky old boats...not as much fun to retouch as to make into 'art' lol.
