Or do a lot of color saturation and other techniques to turn a regular fairy into a bright and intense fairy.
Or how about introducing the main subject onto a different background.
and another example...
I have also had some success in the past with making old photos that had turned red, if not totally original color, at least less red and with some color replaced. I can also remove simple unwanted objects from the original background, like the window blinds from this one.
Sorry, I did not keep the original image on this one.
So here's the deal... I need to know if anyone would be interested in something like this as a giveaway contest. Basically I would have you post a comment to enter, telling me what photo you want 'altered' and how. After a length of time I will pick a winner and alter thier photo how they wish (or to the best of my ability). Catches...of course there is a catch. The image needs to be digital to start with, as large as possible. And I will return the altered image to you as a digital file. You will have the opportunity to print as many as you want, the cost will be your responsibility. To make sure there is enough interest, I would like to see at least 10 different people comment that they are interested. So those of you who read my blog already, if you like the idea, post a link about this on your blog.
Thanks for reading!!
