Good questions, they can all be answered by looking at the previous competition entries.

*consolidating ego moment* bet you couldn't have done it without my one way on the building inspiration j/k to get something like that finished you would have had to start WAY before me, or are just that fast.

anyways, before I get my foot in my mouth, very nice work Plu, and Brandon, I think yours was really good, it just missed a certain element, but I can't put my finger on it

Question on this one. For "stock" pictures....if a picture used in the comp is "royalty free" and the only requirement for use is a reference be made back to the creator, can that be used?

Paint in no shape or form can be considered a "photo editing software". While you can edit photo's on it, it just doesn't go far enough.

I was afraid I wasn't going to get this done in time. I'm not very good with PhotoShop yet, so it took me a little longer than some of you. About 3 hours to create the background the way I wanted it, and about another 4 hours for the rest -- all in a days work, I guess *lol

Anyway, here's my entry, based on an idea I had about the 2004 olympics:

Image

I'll let you choose the resolution that works best for your system:

http://atnopro.com/ozzu/comp2/athens200 ... 24x768.jpg
http://atnopro.com/ozzu/comp2/athens200 ... 00x600.jpg

Extra images:
Background created with Terragen -- I couldn't have been more pleased -- by accident I generated a camera angle that gave me a perfectly flat area to insert the parthenon. (yes folks - for those of you that don't know Terragen, that background is computer generated! It doesn't exist anywhere else on earth - amazing little program!)

Thanks Rose..actually the things I like most about it is how the "girl's" face blends with the background (especially the nose) and how the "modern" "skyscraper" blends with the Parthenon -- I tell you plain and simple the composition was entirely by accident...I can already see the quality is a bit to be desired...but I just love the theme... That's the only reason I entered it. I had the idea in my head ...but it all worked out better than I planned.
