Contest goal:

In this contest, your goal is simple. Take any of the "empty place" sources below and fill it up with "life". You can place anything in it you want, the more life your scene contains, the better. Your additions are not limited to real life. By "life" we mean anything that gives these empty places an extra boost. Human or animal life are not mandatory. Spicing up the scene is what's important. You can either go for photorealism, but you can also chose a more surreal approach.
You can only use one of the following sources:

Nellista: Fantastic approach on a contest! I specifically love the variety this contest offers us! Thank you, Jaskier! ( 5 years and 1429 days ago )
spaceranger: I totally agree with Nellista, thanks again Jaskier! ( 5 years and 1429 days ago )
Akassa: Fresh idea! Great suggestion. ( 5 years and 1429 days ago )
AdhirAnimator: Time to show our imagination, good concept! ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
DanLundberg: Creative idea. I admit I would have split this into two separate contests, an indoor-space one and an outdoor-space one. As I've noted previously, constraints inspire creativity (as evidenced by the more-typical "Photoshop this" contest). ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
jaescoe21: hmmmm.... this is kinda cool. I have a question... Can we take parts of the an image and make a scene, or do we have to use it the way it is? For Example, can i take the basket and wine out of the image and make a picnick? ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
k5683: When you click on any of the links, it only gives you access to the preview picture. You have to have an account to get the full size image. ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
hereisanoop: fabulous idea..... ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
nasirkhan: k5683, creating account is simple enough. All participtant, who uses sources from sxc.hu for their entires have their accounts, Registration is free ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
erathion: I have same question as Jaescoe21,can we use just part of the image,or we must to use whole pic.Or if we use whole image,can we change some part to no recognition... ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
Lamantine: great suggestion but still i would prefer if we could chose any lifeless background and add life to it ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
nasirkhan: erathion, IMO we need to use full image (not portion of it). Description say "Take any of the 'empty place' sources below and fill it up" . ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
