Challenge #1

Hi All
For this challenge there are two source photos. Both are of geese. The challenge is to isolate the geese from their original picture and create a new picture with the geese. I have demonstrated a sample here as well. However you do not have to use the same effect I did. The reflection is not part of the challenge. The challenge is simply isolate the geese and create a new photo using them.
If you need assistance please feel free to use the Google search bar at the bottom of the screen and you search results will be displayed on this page. I ask that you please use the search bar here as it will help me grow this site. Thanks. I look forward to the submissions. Send them to
Thanks and good Luck

Site Description

Hello Again
There will be two post here tonight. The first is an overview of how I want to operate the site and the second will be the first photo challenge.
O.K here it goes, I have noticed that a few people have found the site already and that's great. I hope you have bookmarked it. I am planning on posting a picture here that you can download by simply right clicking the photo and clicking save as from the pull down menu. Once you have the photo you can open it into your preferred program for editing. Once you have accomplished the effect as outlined in the challenge provided you can send your finished work back to me. I have created an e-mail address that you can send your work to. It is After I review the submissions I will choose the what I feel to be the best edited photo and post it in the blog for everyone to see along with a link to the editors portfolio on some of the stock sites if they would like that.
I would like to be able to do this on a weekly but I realize it may take a while to generate interest. So at first I may have to let the challenges go longer than a week. If you like the idea of this site then you could always help me spread the word. Also for anyone who enters a submission on the first challenge I will post links to their portfolio on one of the stock sites if you like.
Also I want this site to enable people to be able to learn some skills in photo editing therefore the winner of the challenge will have the opportunity to share step by step how they created the effect. Anyways I geuss I will stop rambling and get on with the first challenge, I can always answer any questions and I am open to any comments or suggestions just forward them to the same e-mail above.
Thanks and Enjoy

Hello All!
I am creating this blog as more or less a bit of fun. I want people from the photography community to be able to come here and try their hand at editing photos. Not only is it a chance to strut your skills using various editing programs it will also be a chance for the not so seasoned editors to learn some new skills. I just may fall into the later category myself. While I do have a few tricks up my sleeve I am far from perfect at creating effects.
My plan currently is to issue a challenge which would start with a photograph that I will provide from my collection and end with a certain effect as the desired outcome for the finished product. I would ultimately like to be able to issue weekly challenges to this effect.
Since I am just starting this idea and I know it will take a while before I can get the ball rolling on this I may have to allow longer than a week at the beginning until I can generate enough interest. Of course if you are interested you can always help spread the word for me.
