Hi Abbie...

I think something is wrong with the contest. It's already showing all the images from the previous contest which has been completed.

Please check it out.

Here is my edit. Thanks Abbie for the lovely walkway for this bloke and his dog. I added a tree in the foreground and also added this guy walking his dog - they notice that the tree on the path has blue butterflies resting on the trunk. The sweet dog notices a butterfly coming after him.

Little Red Riding Hood is about a small naive girl who trusted a wolf enough to tell it where she was going. In this case to visit her grandma's house, to which she explained to the wolf exactly she where she lived.

The wolf kept an eye on her, followed her, and beat her there. Her grandmother, feeble, small and weak in bed, was waiting for the child. Instead the wolf came in and (Spoiler alert), ate the grandmother all up. The wolf being into cross dressing and cos-play, got dressed into the grandmother's clothes.

When Riding Hood (that is her name by the way, its not a reference to her outfit) arrived, she saw that her grandmother's features changed quite a bit. Afraid her grandmother got plastic surgery, she inspected her grandmother thoroughly.

Pointing out the unusual features in her face, the disguised wolf became depressed, and when it was sad it ate. And he ate the girl. And that is how the story went.

This is my 1st entry into the 2nd July "Edit This Challenge" from Abbie Shores.
I added a new background sky to replace the original blank white one. I widened half of the image from the trail to the left water's edge. I added the equestrian on horseback on the widened trail and tried to match the lighting conditions. I made other normal image adjustments. I added shadows and vignette. I softened the image with some glow.

This is my 3rd entry into the 2nd July "Edit This Challenge" from Abbie Shores.
I added a new background sky to replace the original blank white one. I widened half of the image from the trail to the left water's edge. I added two people in a trike pedaling on the widened trail and tried to match the lighting conditions. I made other normal image adjustments. I added shadows, a sepia tint, and light vignette. I softened the image with some glow.

Brian, widening the trail was a great idea! Great job on all 3.

I'm still working on the spider web theme.

Since I do everything on my lap top, using the touch pad, and employing the basic Gimp program.

and completely ignorant of what potential Gimp may have.

I tediously plopped a 75 pixel dark green dot, for every dew drop.

And then using a textured brush stroke a 50 pixel light blue dot was placed on the lower portion of the green dot
'
Then a 35 pixel textured white dot on that blue dot.

It took forever, and is no way consistent...Dots are all over the place, as you can see within the closeup square

I justify the variation as "Giving Life" to the dewdrops, and indicating a "Handmade" quality.

I'm fighting with myself, whether all this time and effort is worth the result.

Alison, Thank you for the nice comment. I also must say that I've admired all of your editing work on Abbie's challenges.

@roger - i think there is an easier way to make the dots. if you make a brush, a round one at the size you want. choose a spacing that looks like what you want. then choose the path tool and make a selection, i think it has to be a complete circle. then right click it and choose - Stroke Path - choose the brush you chose it should create a series of circles were you want them.

from there you can use a style, making a solid color and an inner shadow to make them into balls. i use this method to make rivets on metal.

this is for photoshop any version

Mike,

Thanks for showing me the WAY.

I got the Gimp book out and looked up "Stroking Path"

At first it was all a bunch of gobbly gook

But eventually, by trial and error ,I was able to produce a meandering string of beads.

I tried it on the existing created beaded web image, and got carried away.

I've got to restart from scratch, keeping the web sparkling yet transparent

 

Mike Savad

24 Days Ago

yeah its tricky at first, i don't use it as much as i used to, but its a good way to say - string rope, or chain or something else in a nice neat way. the only hard part is that you have to set the brushes and such up in advance.

if anything it should keep you sane and keep your hand from fatiguing.

The water spots (puddles) in the path, have bothered me, right from the onset

With a couple of minutes of rough manipulations, I dealt with 2 of them.

I'll wait until the morning, to decide whether it's worth going any further.

I'm toying with the idea of transforming the shading on the path, going towards the foreground, into a full figure lying on the ground.

Best Horseback Riding Trail. First I added mountains and sky in the background, then a stables barn and horses around the barn in a field behind a fence. I imagined saddling up one of the horses and riding around the lake on this trail. That would be heavenly for me!!!!!!!!!!
