This is my first try. I'm not sure I'll enter this one. I think I can do better.

Meant to look like a tapestry.

This is my 1st entry for Abbie's edit challenge #19. Since I have more than one entry, I'll call this one Abbie's Edit Challenge 19a. I added a sign that reads, "Please Keep Off The Grass", and a thought bubble for the pigeon on the fence that reads, "Hmmm... Please Keep Off The Grass ? I'm still on the fence about it. I guess this was a bad day to quit using Pot !" (lots of "flower pots in the picture).

This is my 2nd entry for Abbie's edit challenge #19. Since I have more than one entry, I'll call this one Abbie's Edit Challenge 19b. I added a 2nd pigeon on the opposite side of the image facing the one on the left (including the flower pots). I added a banner sign between the two pigeons which they are holding up by a string in their beaks. It's a landscaping sign...

Here is one of my edits, the pigeon is watching wildlife in the peaceful backyard. I added a duck mama and her two babies and a toad frog at the back planters and gave it a slight illustrative style.

Friends or food? Hard to know, it could be a harmless play date, where the cat jumps up and the bird flies away, sticking its tongue out and doing a raspberry, nyah nyah missed.

Or maybe it will become a late date snack, if I were cat, I know my mouth would be watering. Just look at that thing, so thick and juicy looking.

I like your cat Mike - Great work!

I was thinking about this too, but didn't have a photo of a cat, or a cat to take a photo of :)

Grrr! -- I re-edited my image with improvements, and the latest improved version does NOT show up consistently throughout the site. It didn't. Then it did. Then it didn't again. Annoying.

On a separate note, I'm doubting that a cat could get that close. But then again, a fairy wouldn't even be there. Fantasy has various tiers of believability. (^_^)

UPDATE: ... and now the image displays properly again. I guess it's all that fairy magic taking a few hours to kick in.

Here's my latest try at this. Featured: a pigeon, a white butterfly and a white bush in the garden with flower pots. Border design, some digital painting. And I still have a week to keep playing!

That's a good one, Lise W.

QUESTION for Mike S: I thought you were against upsizing images. I noticed that your effort here was a bit larger than the original, and yet it looks fairly decent. Are you now okay with upping a bit and then countering with effects? I've done that, and it seems to work, as long as I don't go too big. Just wondering what your philosophy might be now.

 

Abbie Shores

Fabulous images!!

 

Mike Savad

i'm not against upsizing at all, the site is. but if you know what your doing, and what to look for, then it will print fine. i don't use effects. and there can only be so much of a jump. making 4500 into 5900 is ok for many images. but 2000 into 5900 and it would be a mess. i've upscaled a lot of images if i think i can get away with it.

my philosophy never changed, if you can get away with it, and you don't have too much lost detail, and it doesn't block up and it doesn't look blurry then its ok. but for most people on this site, they will take a 1000px image and make it into a 10,000px image and it will look nasty up close. all so they can print the largest sizes and that's a no no. they are better off not doing that at all.

i don't like enlarging anything with fine detail, because that will make it look worse. so like writing on a bottle, would look bad, or fine wires. but grass and birds, that works fine here. works better on a tif or an image that is already a little bit soft, i never sharpened this one, totally forgot actually, whipped it out in an hour or so. if its already sharp, enlarging it will make it look really bad. it needs to start soft, then sharpen with a deconvolution sharpener. that will keep the contrast lines down.

Hey Mike,

I see that you eliminated that twig at the pigeon's beak

It bothered me too

So I also did something similar

 

Mike Savad

anything that distracts, i remove. i also got rid of a twig in the center and a few other spots.

Thanks, Mike S, for the clarification. Pretty much my philosophy, basically. If it's not too much, then SOMETIMES I upsize, but generally I make every effort to avoid it. Bottom line -- if it looks crappy, then don't do it. It depends on the image. Sometimes, I've upped just a tad, and it looked crappy, because the original image could not handle it. Other times, I have probably pushed the limits, and the image still was okay, because the original was such good quality.

It's a judgement call, but I like the general rule, "Don't do it." -- It's probably best not to. Depends on what you're doing creatively.

its sort of like saying - do not do Parkour! not a good idea, it looks fun, easy, but you'll get hurt... but if you know how to parkour, then go for it.

An old man in tattered jeans falls asleep on the front steps after finishing off a bottle of whiskey. Jack the cat joins him in a snooze as a pigeon sits snugly on a branch in the flower bush. Someday he will get around to cutting the grass....someday.
