    1. Contest will run from 9 Oct to 2 Nov 2014. Deadline for entries is 6pm (U.S. Central Time…remember daylight savings starts 2 Nov).

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

    3. Tasks:
    • Use the provided images to create a Headless Horseman spooky scene. You must use the provided background image and the main elements from at least 2 of the other 3 images. You can use all 4 images if you wish.
    • DO NOT add text.
    • You are free to add other copyright free elements to enhance your scene.
    • Final image must be in landscape format, 800 pixels wide by 600 pixels high.
    • Retouch the resulting image as necessary to create the final spooktacular masterpiece.

    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 3 to 10 Nov 2014. Only those with entries may 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. 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.

              Oct 2016 Contest - Halloween Photo Manipulation
              by T Paul
              Create a Haunted House Scene complete with moonlight.

              Source Image:
              The Carson Mansion is a large Victorian house located in Old Town, Eureka, California. Regarded as one of the highest executions of American Queen Anne Style architecture, the home is "considered the most grand Victorian home in America." It is one of the most written about and photographed Victorian houses in California, and perhaps, in the United States. Originally the home of one of Northern California's first major lumber barons, it has housed the Ingomar Club, a private members only club, since 1950. Though the front and south-side elevations can be easily viewed from the public street and sidewalk, the home and grounds are never open to the public.

              by T Paul
              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.
