Your task is to take an ordinary photo and by using your photo manipulation skills transform it into something weird, seen through the eyes of the person hallucinating. Good luck and be creative!

Required level: 5+ or higher.

SOLARIS: I know this condition pretty good :-/ question, "..take an ordinary photo ...transform it into" sounds like only one source Image should be used. Is that correct? ( 5 years and 1899 days ago )
HeinrichB: What I had in mind is that the main source image i.e your "background" be realistic like the road while driving your car or a classroom or whatever and then you could use other source images to create the hallucinations. Take for example a picture of a book you are studying but you are so sleep deprived that the letters are dancing across the page or something to that effect. Anyway that's the kind of thing I had in mind when I suggested the contest but I guess its up to the mods ( 5 years and 1899 days ago )
gigi: I am not at a high enough level for this contest but here are a couple of hallucinations I had when I was sick, on pain meds, and refused to sleep for about a week: wiggly worms on the window but they were clear so only I could see them. Knew the FBI would come through the TV to get me if I got well, Just some ideas ( 5 years and 1898 days ago )
