THE OBJECTS MUST ALREADY BE BLUE IN COLOR. THE CONTEST IS NOT ABOUT CHANGING COLORS INTO BLUE. AN SBS MAY ASKED FOR.


Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

meatman: is there any other way to do the selective coloring besides using the eraser or paint tool to select the color. I am a little shaky and its hard to do it good without jaggy edges, etc. Any help would be appreciated. ( 5 years and 1038 days ago )
friiskiwi: If you have something really blue in the image, you could try desaturating all channels bare the blue one. ( 5 years and 1038 days ago )
SohCahToa: you can use selection such as magnetic lasso or magic wand. ( 5 years and 1038 days ago )

poetress59: I am curious...since it seems the contest goals have been changed or modified, should anyone who may have changed something to blue that was not blue in the original photo, red flag themselves? Would that save a lot of hassle in the long run before voting is completed? I have one entry that followed the original goals and guidelines but now does not since it has been emphasized it had to be blue originally....I will red flag myself with that photo but thought this might be helpful for those that may have done the same thing based on the original goal of the contest.

lolipop4400: i am mad the the contest moderator removed my entry.....the goal didn't say the objects must already be blue in color...when was this changed?! it also says...and quote "For example: color only a certain piece of clothing, leafs on a tree, clouds, etc...)" so how can you have a blue leaf or blue clouds originally? ( 5 years and 1035 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @lolipop.... The mods cant always change the description as suggested. What we can do is clarify and add to the description. This contest, like the original is to create an entry that has only blue. The process means to take a photo with blue in it and only have the blue show. I agree... leafs on a tree is a bad example... but it was there. ( 5 years and 1035 days ago )
lincemiope: first ... Guides are not changed after the first line jobs
second ... the examples was wrong
third .. after 6 days was canceled one of my photo that has the blue background in nature

thanking the moderator, must also be respected our work ( 5 years and 1031 days ago )
lincemiope: will be very difficult to put the SBS now that the contest is over. only red flags? ( 5 years and 1031 days ago )
TwilightMuse: My entry was removed too. Didn't expect the contest guidelines to be "clarified" thus when I uploaded my image I didn't reread the guidelines. It certainly stated something quite different in the original description. ( 5 years and 1030 days ago )
Contest Moderator: "TwilightMuse,
Your entry was submitted days after the guidelines were "clarified". You should have read the entire goal before entering.
Lincemiope, you entered early but had enough time to put an sbs.

Mods can not always clarify the goal right away. We try to do it as soon as possible to avoid any problems. However...... it is still up to the contestant to follow the general rules and if there may be any doubt about an entry provide an sbs. ( 5 years and 1030 days ago )

You'd never believe this was a 5 year old. IMO, one of the best images I've ever had the fortune of getting. (5 years and 1040 days ago)
