Re: June 10 Contest Discussion
I enjoyed the photo choice, particularly the lace, it gives a nice challenge as how to color it without making it look flat and monochromatic. The same holds true for the face and hair. If their were any problems with some of the submitted entries, it was the colors used for the face and hair, if they are to close the figure ends looking flat and monochromatic. But then again that's the challenge.

Re: June 10 Contest Discussion
just a reminder, make sure your pics are the right size and have your name in the file name or they do get disqualified!

I spent ages trying to make the fabric-y scarf thing around her neck look transparent and decided it should just be white. After rereading the rules before posting I realized I'd wasted ages doing the wrong thing - lol. Anyway I posted my "goof up" on Flickr because I was quite pleased with it. And when someone asked how I did it I looked up some tutorials linked from here.

tutorial 1

tutorial 2

tutorial 3

tutorial 4

I found this oddly engrossing and very satisfying work to do.

Re: June 10 Contest Discussion
Enjoyed this contest a lot!
When I was looking the entries over, noticed some with wrong pixel dimension cropping.
Just a heads up, as one would have been in my top 5 picks.
