This would have been better as famous photographer. As is, it will just be deja vu all over again.

Not that I have a ton of ideas, but keep in mind you don't have to just copy a famous photo, but do your own take, as long as it is recognizable, ie, using Lego characters and maybe a Woody or two, dress up your dog?

Questions for SC/experts:

Under the advanced editing rule set, is it legal to selectively change the color of part of an image's subject by using a duplicate image layer and adjusting the hue/saturation, then overlaying it on the original layer?

From the rule set: "saturate, desaturate or change the colors of your entry or any existing object within it."

I just want to make sure this doesn't count as 'creating' new feature.

Any help appreciated!

Thanks.

Seen's how we're answering advanced editing questions here. I don't understand how you can use selections. Can you use the polygon selection tool to adjust colour or the tone's of an area without changing other parts of the picture? Do you really have to use an adjustment layer as opposed to just affecting the layer you are working on? If so then why what's the real difference? When can you or can you ever add add a vignette in the challenges?

hawkeye, I think you are mixing both the basic and advanced rulesets here. You are not required to use adjustment layers in Advanced. Specially:
"You may apply filters, effects, dodge & burn, and other tools to all or part of your entry, but NO new shapes or features may be created in the process."
"You may use layers, layer masks, and alternative layer modes."

And for adding Vignetting, yes, that's allowed in Advanced. See scalvert's response in //www.dpchallenge.com/forum.php?action=read&FORUM_THREAD_ID=982247&highlight=vignetting

Polygon tool = yes. Selections are allowed in Advanced; we don't care how you make them (masking or selection tool). Beware adding a new feature.

Adjustment layer = An adjustment layer is a layer containing no pixel data. You can only work with Adjustment Layers in Basic. If you can figure out how to change the color of an object using only Adjustment Layers, you can change colors in Basic. (See tutorials for Selective Desaturation as an example.) In Advanced or Expert, you can Duplicate Layer (contains image data) if you want.

Vignettes = Never add in Basic, OK to add in Advanced or Expert. Beware adding a vignette to the extent that a new shape is created.

Or this, the world's most expensive photo, from the same page:

I hate t he face that most photos will just be copied and not too different, i mean it will be hard to create a new scene, plus i cant judge mine has basically copied. :(

I actually like this challenge. For me, it's an opportunity to examine memorable photographs and dissect their lighting, their techniques, and figure out what makes them so timeless. Besides, isn't imitation the greatest form of flattery? :-)

Be VERY careful with this. The polygon selection tool selects in specific, hard-edged shapes, and you can very easily "create a new feature" with this tool. Imagine, for example, a photograph of a plain, blue sky, with a selection tool used to select a square area in the middle of the sky, then color shift used to turn the blue into a blazing green. You now have a green square floating in a blue sky, that was not even hinted at in the original; this is a "new feature" and it would get you DQ'd, even though both tools you used to create it are "legal" tools in advanced editing.

I am so entering a useless photo... Hope it gets some laughs or that some people "get" it... But mostly I think this is a fairly hopeless challenge for me...

It's not even that good of a replica :)

I'll race you guys to the bottom. I suspect there will a a lot of entries that capture the look of a non-artistic famous photo, and score low because of it.

So you've noticed that most famous photographs "suck" by DPC standards too huh? :)

haha, I really wanted to do the loch ness monster photo, but it's an awful photo -- bad composition, blurry, etc. So I didn't know whether people would vote on how well I recreated the photo or the photo itself! (Plus I was too lazy to go make a loch ness monster.)

I'm in. Just for fun on this one.
06/13/2010 07:07:54 PM · #74
I'm in with a photo that will be done many, many, many times, and by people with a lot more experience with this type of photo. But it was fun to do, and I like the shot, so I'm in!
