nem: Just those three objects, or at least those three? ( 5 years and 2058 days ago )
EmiK: I'm not able to download the PXL Logo. Any suggestion?, well that is if I make it to the final round, lol. ( 5 years and 2058 days ago )
nem: Just those three objects, or at least those three? ( 5 years and 2057 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @nem: those 3 items need to be in your entry, anything more is allowed ( 5 years and 2057 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @EmiK: link has been modified, it is working now ( 5 years and 2057 days ago )
EmiK: Yes it does work now, thank you =) ( 5 years and 2057 days ago )
EmiK: Ok, sorry one more question, so now that I have the logo in my photoshop, can I apply it to the picture, or do I have to recreate it from scratch in the photograph? ( 5 years and 2057 days ago )
EmiK: Can we do this? ( 5 years and 2057 days ago )
nem: From how I understand the rules, you must never apply a graphic image in ps… Print it and stick it into your scenery for starters. Or you may use it as a template to arrange burning candles in the logo shape. Or you may use the print to blindfold an animal getting burned by that mandatory candle (statue only of course B-]) I guess you got the idea ( 5 years and 2057 days ago )
EmiK: lol, I think I got it, but that candle idea in the shape of the logo sounds kind of cool =) ( 5 years and 2057 days ago )
nem: Just to have it said: if you put too many burning candles together the wax may start burning which yields a fireball. Quite dangerous stuff, so better don't try it at home … ( 5 years and 2056 days ago )
EmiK: Honestly this is the most challenging photography contest for me thus far. I still don't have an idea of how to combine the three so they look like a scene, not like random items at a garage sale, lol. Thank you Pxleyes for the enormous challenge. =) ( 5 years and 2055 days ago )
EmiK: And congrats to my fellow competitors =) ( 5 years and 2055 days ago )
nem: All the best to everybody. ( 5 years and 2055 days ago )
EmiK: Just a suggestion, but I think the final four should not comment on the others entries here as it is really easy to tell by process of elimination who's the author of the photo. Then again we all have such different styles that it's probably going to be easy to tell anyways. =) ( 5 years and 2054 days ago )
poetress59: Wishing all the final four good luck in this contest! Have fun with it and let the imaginations fly!

I thought it was a good idea when I started this set up, but it proved to be much harder then I thought. Here I took 4 pictures and combined them in to a panorama. I used only what is allowed in the rules to put this together. My light here is not the best, but if anything I hope you like my attempt. (5 years and 2051 days ago)
