Re: Aug-Sep 2014 Merge Channels Contest

I hope I've uploaded this correctly. I've not entered a competition before and this small size doesn't really show the clarity of the faces :-( But I felt the picture needed to show the men in context, with the logs around them.

I dealt with the problem of the men moving between takes by using just one colour channel for the middle face and then placing a colour adjustment layer over it.

It was a fun challenge - thanks!

Re: Aug-Sep 2014 Merge Channels Contest

Hi this is my first time do a challenge like this.
I love restoring old photos.This one was a challenge for me
which I love the chance to learn something new.
I cropped the photo to make three photos then lined them up
and merged the channels together. Did some retouching and
and some color adjustment.

I was thrilled with all the entries this month! So many new names. I was initially afraid that this challenge might scare contestants away , but you guys proved me wrong. I was also happy to see some old friends that we haven’t seen in awhile.

Kudos to all the entrees and a special thanks for those that shared tips. My favorite contests are the ones where I see a lot of dialogue between the entrees!

The votes were close...

And the winner is Tsykhra!
