Awsome! Only one thing bothers me... the eye highlights. They seem to be in the wrong place and too fuzzy.
other than that I love it!

author says:

fixed the eyes (puppet warp did a mess to their shape and form and I forget to use my magnifier when I use it sometimes to check my work, can't see worth Shiite ) THANKS!!

This is very cool... but... "enhance" does not mean "completely change"

author says:

the original image is there... you can actually lay it across itself, (it's a photoshop contest, not a photography contest) give us some freedom of creation

The original image is in most chops... that still doesn't mean they're "enhanced."

this would fall under the questionable thing....are layers of cut originals fine or just basic adjustments? this is pretty cool either way.

k5683 says:

by the way, I didn't think it should be pulled because you used your own picture in multiple layers

what is a flood fill filter

author says:

http://www.flamingpear.com/flood.html

I bought it a long time ago and it sits in your PHOTOSHOP PROGRAM and gives you hundreds of options to show water reflection (I think you can try it for free for a limited time, it's a lot of fun and really easy to use) it has TONS of options

kathyw says:

cool,did not think I could use third party filters

But this looks cool... and far closer to the theme

author says:


You are allowed to do whatever you want with your photo BUT you are not allowed to use other sources.

Not sure what you mean by the theme, and being closer to it just makes me want to give it a breathe mint (hehehehehe)

I think the theme evolved from a thread (by Vibeke? I'm not sure) that pointed out that for many Photography sites, and for photography in general nowadays, Photoshop (or whatever program) is commonly used to erase powerlines, enhance colors etc. for a "better" end product. This revolved around a debate (which goes far beyond the borders of this site) as to whether or not this type of enhancement is "photography" or "chopping."

Here, we generally steer closer to the "purist" side with the photography rules (which IMHO is a great thing). But someone suggested we have a photo theme without the usual photography restrictions of this site to see what kind of shots we got. Then, it was pointed out that a theme like that would be better on the Photoshop side... and... VOILA! This theme was born. So, you see, the initial intent was not to take a photo and change the content by adding things. It was to take a photo and "enhance" it.

Geexman says:

Then this contest should be in photography with the enhancement restrictions lifted, photoshop entries that use a one click adjustment are generally frowned upon because adding a filter/adjustment takes no skill, the chopper is therefore relying on the quality of the original photograph & skill of the photographer. If I took one of your best photo`s and clicked auto color who gets the glory? me? you? or the guy that wrote the code for the auto color? The guidelines you mentioned really just makes this a contest for photographers to get some easy 2d points.

kyricom says:

Geexman... filters which apply to the image as a whole (e.g. contrast) are already legal in the photo contests, although just hitting "auto color" wouldn't do too well against someone who really knew how to edit well. What you cannot do (generally) are things that don't apply to the image as a whole - for example, if you had a great shot, except for those power lines through the top. In the photo section of this site, you could not legally take those power lines out. This theme was created to show shots like that, except that they could legally be "enhanced" without the power lines. That of course, is just one example. The point though, was that the shots (in this one theme) would not have things (objects/images etc.) ADDED to them.
