Contest extensions

Hi guys, you may have noticed that occasionally contests are being extended by extra days without individual announcements. At the moment we are all still living in strange times.

Re: Real book covers

As they are real, self-published, and not created for the recent Book Cover contest, I asked for preapproval to post to the forum after the contest was over. Well, it is over so our real book covers can be found at http://www.learningadventurebooks.com Good job to all the Book Cover contest partici...

Contests updates

Hi Everyone, not the best of times at the moment and I guess that is why entries are low. Advanced: Fire has been withdrawn for now, but there are a couple of new ones for you, 'Design a Book Cover' (Bonus) and 'Glass' (Advanced), so you have something to work on. Stay safe guys :cheers:

I'd be happy to hear the steps others take to correct blow-outs. 1) Try very hard to get it close in camera and avoid blown highlights. I'd rather have too dark and recover from that vs blown highlights. :lol: 2) Then camera raw corrections -- even on jpg if a raw file is not available. 3) Finally,...
