    G'day Everyone,

    I've just been having a play around with some 'tutorials' and the like and this is an image that I produced.

    I have larger versions of it on my website ( ) for those who are really interested. I'd certainly be interested in any comments as the base image was taken from "Photo manipulation Challenge 6".

    I loved the image with the architecture and gradients but didn't like the actual challenge (sorry DJ Dubovsky).

    Well, it's certainly...different

    I had to stare at it awhile to finally see the original image, and would never have guessed at the source if you hadn't told us outright.

    So, c'mon, no free rides here: how did you do it? What was your inspiration, thought process, etc. What were you trying to say?

    My first take on it was as some sort of bizarre subway photo.

    And I encourage all sorts of play outside the Challenges. They're one thing, this is another. No reason they can't co-exist nicely.

    And do us all a favor and attach a copy, so years from now when that link is dead people aren't left in the dark (pun intended).

      everytime I've tried to upload an image, I've never been able to. I would love to get it off my server space. I go to browse, make sure it is a jpg under 102400 but when I hit submit, but it never appears. I'm not trying for a free lunch or anything, just generally didn't think that people would be interested. Alot of it was shear experimentation. Took about 20 hours to do and the final file has about 120 layers all doing different things. If there is enough interest, I'll write a tutorial or part there of or something. What are people interested in?

          Most common reasons uploads don't work:

          Too big (cut it by 25% and try again)
          No ".JPG" suffix (this stymies some Mac users).
          Impatience (there's no progress gauge, and can take a few minutes with slow connections)

            This'll be truncated in lieu of later posts...

            OK, now I would initially like to hear everyone's opinions on how they would restore this. After hearing someone's formula, I will send the TXT file that includes the steps that I wrote that were edited by a few folks at Adobe, and again...

            Retouching / Restoring vs. Recreating
            by chiquitita
            I have noticed a trend on this site where some retouchers/restorers like to recreate missing information in a damaged photo. I thought I would start a thread to hear the members' thoughts on this subject.

            Personally, beyond cloning a few objects, I like to leave the photograph as close...

            Tent on Malolotja revisited
            by BigAl
            I recently asked my students, as part of an Internet awareness assignment, "What is the significance of the 'Tent on Malolotja'?". As this image was discussed in an earlier thread, I thought I'd share what the students found.

            What I was actually after was:
            • what had been done?
            • you

            How Much Artistic License?
            by Jakaleena
            Ok, ethics question here...

            The scenario is that you're doing a restoration job for a client. How much artistic license do you take? And what reasons do you have for drawing the line at that particular place? What is fair game for changing, and what do you consider "sacred"?...

            Need help removing blotchy stains from B&W photo
            by jeaniesa
            I've been searching the web (including newsgroup archives) for the past two days looking for tips on how to do this. I finally got ahold of an old Adobe tutorial, but unfortunately, the technique is for color photos and I couldn't figure out how to make it work for B&W.

            Anyway, here's...
