Challenge: Beatles Song/Lyrics (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Location: Garden
Date: May 28, 2006
Aperture: f/9.0
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/30
Date Uploaded: May 29, 2006

Wasn't an easy one, I wont lie... self-portrait with mud all over my camera, cold out with neighbours looking at you... :)

Anyhow, converted from raw, usm, played with sliders a little, burnt the sun on the right - might get penalised for it being too harsh, cant do anything bout it i'm afraid. Also cloned some pink under my eyes.

I was torn between this one and another one, but after showing this to a few peers, they chose this one, so i'm hoping they were right!


*Edit post challenge* Wow! Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I guess my peers were right after all! :P

Here was my other choice:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/42601/120/344601.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/40000-44999/42601/120/344601.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I dont know how women can go through mud packs and stuff, cause it aint pleasant! When my neighbour saw me, he didnt say a word. I think he didnt mean to laugh out of respect. It was so comical, I just couldn't quite hold it, so when I started laughing my skin felt as if it tore open everywhere, specially the lips and nose area... *shudders*

Never again! LOL!

Hey a personal best. Great concept. I think Team Outcasts is ready for season two!

I'm quite suprised that this one didn't end up in top 10. In my opinion it was one of the best in this challenge. Even the title fits perfectly with your photo.

Ah well, 17 out of 267 is still a great placement, so congratulations on your top 20 finish!
