Oct/Nov 2012 Contest - Highlander

Download the provided photos and create a highlander theme family reunion poster. Think Liam Neeson in Rob Roy and not Mel Gibson in Braveheart. DO NOT add text.

The challenge will be to develop a creative composition that effectively blends all the elements together.

Source Images (two images to download):

Highlander (permission from Mike King)


Background Eilean Donan castle

THE RULES:

1. Contest will run from 2 Oct to 23 Nov 2012. Deadline for entries is 6pm (U.S. Central Time).

2. I will not answer questions concerning the rules. Interpretation of the rules is as important as execution.

3. Tasks:
  • Add client to background and make him fit into the scene (i.e., remove modern items such as glasses, logo on shirt, and modern shoes).
  • DO NOT add text.
  • Give him longer hair
  • Add fog to scene
  • Final image must be exactly 800 pixels wide by 650 pixels high (landscape format); cropping to get the required dimensions is permitted.

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.

5. Post your entries to this thread. Links will not be accepted. Please restrict your comments, questions or discussion to the Contest Discussion thread. Inappropriately placed posts will be deleted.

6. Only one entry per person. You can change your entry up to the deadline.

7. Voting will run from 24 to 30 Nov 2012. Only those with entries may vote. Although everyone (contestants and non-contestants) are encourage to leave comments on the entries in the contest discussion thread.

8. Voting:
  • Submit the 5 best entries (by artist name) in order, starting with your favorite.
  • You cannot vote for your own image.
  • Once you have voted, do not change your votes. Often the votes are tallied as they come in so any changes in the votes may not be reflected in the final results.

Finally, please remember that this is a friendly contest and suppose to be a learning experience. Tips and suggestions to help others are highly encouraged. Also please don’t limit your comments to just the top 5 when you vote. Most members are eager for feedback about their images, so remember to help each other out.
