CPRich, I really like the rock in your 2nd submission - the curves and fine striations on it are kind of evocative of the Wave, which is on my to-do list of places to photograph (next trip to Utah, I guess).

I think the saturation on the rocks in your PS'd shot above is maybe a little strong.

My eyes, my eyes! The goggles, they do nothing!

although you might want to practice a little more with the Extract tool - poor guy in the front is missing some paws

Maybe we should have informal photoshop contests in the new photography forum when it shows up.

Administrivia:

4) Post-Processing - Nothing that substantially changes the image is allowed. Basically, what you see through your viewfinder is what we want to see. Digital cameras inherently post-process the images they record, so additional processing to modify contrast, sharpness, color balance, render B&W, etc is acceptable. That once-in-a lifetime shot of an Alaska Airlines Airbus A380 in flight is out-of-bounds.
Now I know the post processing was not done by the contributor, and won't be the image in the voting gallery, but just a reminder. . .

PTravel has the right idea with extracting the best of what is present in the original, but methinks that sky was shot elsewhere.

and, FlyingOnceMore, thank you for not posting the reborn dogs in-line. ^ I understand that some folks are sharing the images posted here with family.

That said, great shots people! I think this contest will be the most difficult one to judge so far. @:-)

Just playing and spent no more than three minutes on it, so the result is somewhat amputated

Quite right and you're welcome. Also, the last thing I wanted is the thread becoming a PS workshop, funny or not. No offence to those above who have demonstrated what is possible with time and practice.

Awsome!
With so many people traveling, and with just a hand full of us with these amazing shots, you could imagine what kind of photos the whole FT community can put together.

Birdstrike et al,

My entries are located on my website, and I just had to change web hosts (see the thread about my site being hacked). I'm in the process of moving everything over, but it may take a couple of hours. My entries should be back then.

No worries. I did read that thread. The people who did the hacking should be shot.

We still have a week to go in the submission period. Let me know if you want me to host them on the PBase site in the meantime.

Thanks. Actually, they're already back. The files are transferring alphabetically and, luckily, the name I gave them comes before the names of the big video files on my site.

Very nice photos. Too bad I don't have any of red rocks yet!

Inspired by the theme, I've put up this short red rocks video of Dawn at the Grand Canyon. Obviously, not an entry -- it's a video.

Loves your pictures Bundy Bear and cheepneeze.

My wife wants her FT's luggage tags so here are her entries, both from the Grand Canyon and you can see the woman touch in these:

I thought about my photo being of bricks, but I don't think they qualify - aren't bricks manufactured, rather than just cut? This was a photo of a 15th century abbey - I think those are just dressed stones (and much larger than 'bricks' normally are). Ah well, we shall see!

I thought they were dressed stones, particularly those in the upper courses.

On the other hand, the Pantheon, built circa 120 AD, is made of concrete.
