Manipulations Only! NO Mixed Media, NO 3D Stock, NO Painting Over Stock! Entries must be "true-to-form" Manipulations!
This is a "Scene" Manipulation and not a "Design" ~ for additional information between the difference of the two, check This Tutorial
In addition, entries must have a sense of depth and space in the image
. Using the rules of atmospheric perspective,
create space and depth which will help your deviation look more realistic.

Be creative; however
Build "The Four Seasons"
Contest Entry By Using These Expectations: Entries must use one of the required landscape stock found below. The required stock must be edited
by adding appropriate objects and/or by changing colors. For example, the stock for Spring is all green. Adding flowers and other stock help make it look more like Spring. Entries must use any additional stock (of your choice
) to carry through the seasonal theme. Everyone must use more than five (5) additional stocks
within their contest entry. There mus be at least one model in the entry.
The model(s), as well as anything else added must be appropriate for the season chosen. No bikini-clad beauties in the winter scene! Other Resources, like brushes and textures, are fine
to use (in fact, they are encouraged), but they are not stock
, and cannot be counted as stock. No monochromatic
(everything done in different shades of the same color) color schemes!
Don't forget the group policy about "airbrush/painting", and other ways to get a "painterly effect" on your photo-manipulation. For clarification, read precisely what a manipulation is on the group's HOME page. Check the Contest Blog
for all the current information, as well as the prize lists!
, do not be so different the required stock is unrecognizable. Each member can enter up to two (2) deviations into the contest
. If entering twice, each entry must use a different background and "other" stocks!
