Contest Rules

Masking in Photoshop
This is a specialized contest dealing with post processing of photographs. Images that do not appear to meet the criteria will be deleted. If I can't see that masking was done, I will choose to remove the image without comment or discussion. If you do not know what masking is, do not enter.

Take a photo and CLEARLY show that masking was used to separate part of the image from another. In the logo image for this contest, the Bonsai Tree was separated from the background in the original photo by masking. It took almost 3 hours because of the details in the leaves I then replaced the background and created the grassy knoll in the foreground.

Please enter one image.

Vote for as many images as you wish, but please comment when you vote; people love to hear what you like about their images.

No vote solicitation, please. If I suspect it, the image will be removed without comment.

The contest is open 5 days for entries because masking is not a quick process.

Have fun! Be creative!
