Photoshop contest!Welcome to the first AR Photoshop contest.
This contest will show us who has the skills, in this contest you'll need to show imagination when it comes to his one folks, the contest winner will be based on the originality of their entry, aswell as judged on the methods they used in order to create what they did.
With this image i want you to use your imagination and think "outside the box". I want you to edit this picture, you can change anything you want, but please keep the end result no larger than the original picture.
Now, some people will look at this and think what the hell, a birdhouse?! Well, you are only limited by your imagination... heres a few examples of what can be done! Remember though, i wanna see original ideas...
So, where are you gonna learn how to edit this picture? Well look around you, look at everyday objects, situations, scenes that you could integrate this picture into...
Check out www.good-tutorials.com for tips and tricks on ways to edit the picture. Trust me, this site is very good and will help even the experts that roam this board!
Absolutely no cheating, and by cheating i expect for YOU to have done the picture, not "my mate".
All entrys MUST be posted here before 6pm -6 GMT on the 20th February.
If you need your picture to be hosted let me know, although you shouldnt need to, just upload it to the site.
This contest WILL be judged fairly, just keep in mind im looking for imagination, im not relying totally on photoshop editing skills, this will go hand in hand with your ideas and originality.
Any questions? PM me.
There will be a prize involved awarded to the winner, it may be a title or avatar, the winner will hold this for 1 month until the new winner is crowned!

lol certainly original, good job. dont forget you got all week guys, so no rush. BUT you will only have ONE entry...
02-13-2005, 01:39 PM #5
so what will it be judged on exactly?
amount of editing, crispness of editing, originality, context?
oh, and do we have to keep that exact picture and just edit it the way it is, or can we do a ricky type scene and place the birdhouse in a bigger picture or something...can there be writing?

In Greek mythology, Atlas ("he who dares" or "he who suffers") was the son of the Titan Iapetus and the nymph Clymene, and brother of Prometheus. He was the father of the Hesperides, Maera, the Hyades, Calypso and the Pleiades. Because Atlas fought on the side of the Elite in the war with the gods of Mount Anabolic Review, ReX357 punished him with the burden of carrying the heavens and AR's community (The Birdhouse) upon his shoulders.

Lookin good guys, if i can give you a piece of advice it would be to choose your entrys carefully and keep in mind you only have ONE entry. So, by sunday if you have entered more than one (which means if i can find more than one picture from you posted in this forum) then you will be disqualified.
02-13-2005, 06:27 PM #11

Ok well I have tons of $#@ due next week, and I didn't have the time I thought I would to put into this...so here's my entry
I figured Id sugarcoat it with some words though, may help
Every day and Every night,
a few flaps of the wings and onto the site,
the clouds above us dont stand a chance,
we work for our goals with utter romance,
soar from our resting and into the light,
people and knowledge provide a new height,
a rising symbol of everyone's plight,
realizing our growth in the continous fight,
many may leave and never return,
scared to work and feel the burn,
many may leave but no not quite,
reaching the goal with all of their might,
Every day and Every night,
the flock returns, to the wonderous site
desperate times call for desperate measures...lol
