    I think contest for photoshoppers would be cool. Have a mod present a photo, have the contestant digitally remaster the image.

    Best one wins.

    Here's a good start ;)

    Ya, as much fun as it would be to start altering that photo we might get ourselves into trouble.
    You got any photos that you've taken yourself and wouldn't mind using Mark?

    They do something like this over at fark.com. It can be really good or really bad.

    Oh well it was a good idea for the 3 minutes it was up on the board. Don't think I have the right photos for doctoring up.

    (off to produce another hairbrained contest for the photoforum)

    ya wanna do it, do it :lol:

    i think as photographers, we would like for others to respect our copyright, but we're not willing to do the same ... in other words, i think we should "practice what we preach" ... as a photograper, i would be highly pissed, if something like that was going on without my permission .. i dont even let the hubby alter my photos in any way :roll:

    i think its a bad idea ... :?

    I think the idea was really based on having a donated photograph, with photographer consent, that we would then offer up for altering. Similar to what has happened a few times in the photo gallery forum where people have asked about cropping and such.

    One example that comes to mind was the equestrian photo with the horse jumping. A few people took the photo and made various suggestions on cropping and modifying the color, contrast, etc. I think that was a good educational experience for everyone and I found it very interesting to see how different the image appeared based upon different interpretations.

    This absolutely couldn't be done on random images that people find, but if it were a thread where people posted a photo with the undertstanding and expectation of this purpose, it could be quite a learing experience.

    Well, there are my 2 cents...I'll get off my soapbox now :)
