Challenge #270 - Before and after
Hey guys! This week I would love to see some befores & afters. You may present it as you wish, you can make one photo showing the before & after or you can make a collage of two or more images to make your point. As long as the "before & after" is clear to me when I see it, all good. So be creative and be different...Most important , have fun...
Pardon my spelling...
Hello and great job everyone, thank you for participating and posting. I was worried a bit at the beginning that the challenge, maybe was a bit complicated to present. In one image "before & after" if you do not work with image retouching programs, is hard...I think though that it could be done with one photo as well. For example: rpolister's post in the Egging you on challenge is a great example(2nd image). Well balanced egg + egg on the flor....All in one photo...Girls could have played with nail polishers, nails on one hand painted red, the other hand not etc.
Not to bore you guys, well done all in all and if ever again i'll have a chance to choose a theme for a challenge, I promise it will be more simple to execute and present(Now I have a list). This was a bit surprise to me(me winning the Egg trophy) so I rushed to post a challange...
3rd place: Kevan_G9 & ready to take of. Nicely presented work in one image...What bothered me a bit here, is the merging of 5 photos. It is obvious that the first and the last are more important, but I think if you have done it with three images it would be much better. This could be great for "process" challange...
2nd place: Now this was really hard! Boutty. GREAT JOB! Excelente señor, as we say here in Spain, si si excelente! Perfect presentation, nice PP and the effect with the colors, the theme, the composition, the guy working, the froggies, the hand made...I was "uuuulalaaaa" when I saw the image. There is absolutely nothing that bothers my eye and great answer to my "before&after" question. But...
1st place: mrshobden Honestly guys, I think Linda(if I may call you Linda) did a very old and known trick, "give the kid peace of a cake and he will shut-up & be happy" hahaha...From all mentioned above, mrshobden's post got stuck in my head. Every time I thought about the challange, the cake was in my head...every time I just stoped by the challange to see again the posts, 1st and last to see was "my cake"! LoL...After Boutty posted and I went uuuulalaaaa, I scrolled back to check my cake!!! The photo itself could be better...the plates or whatever there is, is bothering my eye. Very simple image that shows how good is the G11. Sharp and crispy(and tasty) post...It is almost like the results that you get after tiping "cake" in the getty images search engine...
So that's it. I hope I judged this good, had a hard time becouse "from here to here" is the correct one...but if I had to put a "face" to this challange, mrshobden's cake would be it.
Bob and Maureen, I feel so guilty! You guys went through so much for my challenge, Bob has built a new porch and Maureen has painted her room. Lol...btw where is dog in the after image?
Jim, I was bit worried that I did not explain myself properly after your 1st post...the second could be much better presented. I can not see the difference...it looks stormy on both of them. The rainbow is very poor and not dominant enough to mark the differance...
Marie, I like BW and it is a "dynamic" image...good post.
rpolitsr, the kid looks very happy with the results! LoL...nice one, wasn't shure if they are twins or "clones" hahaha...
This was soooo exciting for me,
tnx for reading and see ya all next week...
