Default NEW CONTEST

a new contest i thought might be fun. so i ran the idea by matt and he provided a picture of himself to use for the first contest.
so, download it, photoshop it and repost it here.
person with the most creative remake gets bragging rights and thats about it.

couple of rules:
1. you can't use any other photographs besides this one
2. post a short tutorial of what you did - at the very least an outline of steps, it doesn't have to go into great detail. also include what program you used, gimp, pscs, ps elements 3 etc..

contest ends at midnight november 30th.

[attachmentid=1935]

anyone wanting to help judge pm me.

Ok, this is seriously bad. I can't believe I'm even posting this. Sorry Matt!

I call it - The Alien

Used Photoshop Elements 3 for this
1. Cloned Matt's eye to be lower
2. Got rid of original eyes - again the clone tool
3. Erased the office background
4. Created a new background using the gradient tool
5. Using color variations changed the black and white to the green
6. Using the clone tool again I erased Matt's hair.
7. Used the blur tool to soften the horizon and the out line of Matt

I may not qualify as an entrant, but I wanted to try to make a more interesting version anyway.

[attachmentid=1961]

The Alpha Male Photochimp

For the above shot I used the elliptical marquee, the rectangular marquee tool, the lasso tool, the magic wand tool and the move tool. For "color" I used the effects found in Virtual Photographer and Nik plug-ins. I adjusted levels on just parts of the image too. I also used the add grain filter in PS7. It was late, so I did all this in about 10 or 15 min., so I can't really explain what I did in more detail.

The below shot isn't an official entry since I know there is usually only one entry allowed, so I'll just stay with the first attempt above as my official entry. I am having some fun with this, and don't know where else to put it, so here is another version just for fun. I selected the face and hands with the magic wand and added a levels adjustment layer. Then I burned in the ceiling with the burn tool, and cloned out one of the lights. I also used the healing tool to remove some of the highlights on the forehead and nose. I added a slightly cooler tone with virtual photographer. I also added a little noise to give it more of a film look and cropped the shot a little.

Hey Beth, extend this contest. I want to see what the 'scaredy cats' can do. I like these. Mind if I use them?

Keep 'em coming you wimps!!!

Next time, let them past me into some other pictures! That would be fun too.
