I appreciate everyone showing off their editing skills.
I will start with the HM's - Carlton both of your images were very good. I really liked the eagles.
the second HM goes to Paul and his storm cloud. Great job as usual.
In third place is Ina's Book of Genesis...I like the idea and the sepia tone and depth of field is great...I just wish the glasses were slid up a bit to magnify the words "The Creation"
In 2nd is Brad's kids...I wouldn't have noticed the hair if you hadn't mentioned it but I did notice her hand...I have used the clone tool in Picasa and once you switch to something else you will be a pro becuase it was really well done. Also very nice Helga-ish tone. :)
And our winner and deservedly so with his Rugby shot is Mike...you had me at Sports and Editing. Great job, well thought out shoot and great edit.
The next Challenge is your Mike...take it away.
Thanks for 3rd Greg, much appreciated. Congrats to all the winners, all great images and edits. This was a fun challenge, learned a lot :-)
Thanks Greg. The girl is always covered in tatoos and stickers. Thanks again to all the for richness in your posts.
Mike, if you are hunting for ideas for the next contest; how about a week-end challenge. Any picture but the photo must be taken over the week end.
I have been looking for a format like this to force me to practice. If there is not already a group, maybe we can get one started. Maybe a weekly challenge with a theme decided by the winner. Anyone interested?
i didn't know about those other two...I will have to check them out.
