3. Tasks:
  • Turn the attached photo into a gingerbread house complete with candy decorations
  • Remove fire hydrant
  • Turn all objects in scene to edible objects (grass, trees, shrubs, lamppost, driveway, sidewalk, etc.). Note the sky can be left alone.
  • Any elements added must be copyright free.
  • This is not a photo art challenge. Keep your entry photo realistic.
  • Final image must be exactly 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels high (Landscape format).

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.

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.

The only reason I'm entering is to vote. Been home with the flu and bored to tears the last few days. So Voila, my entry.
