I actually meant that both images should go in the same graphic. Perhaps I worded that incorrectly.

Here's my entry...

That's okay. Don't worry about it. I worded it weird. If you want to resubmit, that's cool.

I gotta give it up for the signature.

//...and now, for some reason, I read it "joeb-air". As if it were a French name. :lol:

I've tried and tried, I can't for the life of me figure out how you guys are getting that model look. :scratchhead:

It looks like the outter edges get blurred, then some enriching of the centerpiece colors with some contrast & somthing to take the finer details out of the larger sections.

That's not how I did mine, but I was going after the same visual cues.

[sidenote]I must say I think it would've been cool if we could've shown the two images seperately, because 320px as a maximum is really small ... [/sidenote]

so are you aloud to digitally paint over the image like a matte painting or is that against the rules? are the only things u can do like filters or can you change elements in the photo completely?

You can do whatever you like. The voters can decide if you were on target with the objective. :)

Here is my attempt at a fake miniature look. Took this shot while on a ferris wheel in Paris. Im super afraid of heights and only got on so I could take a few snap shots of the view. I spent most of the ride hugging the floor and peeked my head up a few times to snap pictures. Great work all, there are some awesome entries!
