Abbie Shore's 1st edit challenge of 2020... "A model glider" over farmland and hills. I created six gliders from the original one that was presented. I brought out the thick overcast clouds in the sky and added several textures.
Abbie Shore's 1st edit challenge of 2020... "A model glider" over farmland and hills. I brought out the clouds and normal color brightness, contrast etc. Then I copied the glider and moved it to the left side of the image. Then I added a plane and attached a cable from the glider to the plane. I added a "light beams" texture for the sky as well. This is my 2nd entry to the challenge.
Some day there will be a land where all are welcome. All nationalities, religions, and just everything and everyone. All will be welcome, to live together peacefully. Openly sharing their cultures, and mixing it together.
Looking good. I'm wrapping up my creation. Will probably post tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing everyone's work. I do see a couple in the contest where it's hard to tell it came from that photo. It would be hard to create a percentage I think. Still, I would think the rule of you should still be able to tell where the image came from should be enough. It amazes me how many don't read.
Created for Edit this 2020 contest this image depicts a geisha woman letting go of her origami creation shaped like a plane. Geisha are Japanese women who entertain through performing the ancient traditions of art, dance and singing, and are distinctively characterized by their wearing of kimono and oshiroi makeup and hair ornaments.
The background was contributed by Abbie Shores where a model airplane is soaring over a plain.
As an airplane flies over a valley to get ahead of the storm and rain, a bolt of lightning strikes behind it. The sun off to the right is still shining and as its light hits the rain, creates a double rainbow. I can imagine the pilot thinking, "Let's get out of here!".
I'm noticing some of you have very small images, not big enough for a print! Don't do what I did and left click on the image for a tiny copy. Follow the instructions Abby gives at the top and be sure to click on the three dots at the upper right corner. You will get a nice large image with lots of print sizes for your gallery.
This was made to show how a lack of creativity is used in a contest. By taking a famous piece of art and recreating it on a background that is suppose to be edited to produce an original work of art. This is not a work of art. It is a sham. I simply took a famous portrait from the internet and put the contest image in the background. I then added a texture with a simple click with a filter. This does not show much of the background and has little to do with the conceptual feeling of the original photograph. Others work very hard and use their creative juices to produce what they feel is an effort towards competing in these contests. Don't let images like this ruin it for all of us.
