Thanks Veronica. I'm probably going to change it though. Just wanted to get something entered this time.

Is there a way to download the larger required photos without having to register?

Re: Mar-Apr 2011 Contest Discussion

i've recently uploaded mine.... just wanted to know if i was OK to just use the head of the kitten, and put it on another cats body, as i didn't like the pose the cat was in....

Re: Mar-Apr 2011 Contest Discussion

CaptainObvious,

Hi and welcome. Questions about the specific contest rules are not answered. It's up to the entrants to decide individually how to execute the given material.

In this instance, all I can do is give you my opinion. Since this is a retouch/painting contest, I feel that more artistic liberty can be taken. Since each of the entrants will judge the contest, changing the cat's body could pose a problem for some, but others might think it is fine. Not much help, but that's all I can advise.

Nice work, by the way.

Lorraine

Re: Mar-Apr 2011 Contest Discussion

what a fun exercise!
My first impulse was to get rid of the bare light bulb but then I decided to use it for atmosphere. It was hard to decided what to do with the yummy looking vegetables in the background but since they were so far away I decided their details had to go.

mlmaxey - I like the 'night' color theme
renata - that's so cute! Of course the kitty would shred the table decoration
palms - the shadow under your coffee cup is perfect
CaptainObvious - well this was all about creativity and making a 'frankenkitten' certainly was original
Lorraine - gorgeous shadow work and clever kitten placement
Veralisa - love your color adjustments
Loona - very nice work of integrating the cat
Joeven - your kitten looks so forlorn. I really like your coffee steam effect
Pherbis - you did a terrific job of simplification. Yours came out very cheerful.
CathyH - Very nice. Really clever what you did with the coffee cup.
Andy625 - great shadow work. The kitten is the perfect size for it's placement.
dkcoats - great virtual painting work. I like the thick textured painting look.
LonK - Really good balance between enhancing the details and making painterly texture.
TonyW - Nice depth.

Re: Mar-Apr 2011 Contest Discussion

I really enjoyed this - a complete change to retouching and colour correcting images.
I also enjoyed looking at the very different interpretations by all.

mlmaxey - Loved the 'vibrant' colours and the overall feeling of early morning
renata - Nice feeling looks like an early start to what promises to be a pleasant day. Kitten destroying flowers a nice touch.
palms - What a bright and pleasant look - makes you want to sit down and take a cup.
CaptainObvious - Nicely done. The idea about line drawing fade in to colour inspired.
Lorraine - Loved the kitten hiding thinking you may not see him/her
Veralisa - Really liked the big and well fed kitten and your choice of colour change
Loona - Excellent spot for a kitten to hide
Joeven - Loved the 'punchy illustration' look of this
Pherbis - Lovely bright morning feel to yours
CathyH - Cute kitten poking its head out for a better view
Andy625 - I can smell the coffee here
dkcoats - Very nice painterly effect
LonK - Enjoyed the added extras, saucer milk for kitten, paper on the table and the lens flare effect
Nasturtium - A very pleasing effect - like sitting in the car in light rain and seeing an inviting place for a break and a coffee
