Photo Edit Contest, 300k Grand Prize (in Contests)

Street November 9 2007 11:55 PM EST

Whoever can do the "best" job of editing the photo below wins 300k. 2nd place gets 100k. Use whatever program(s) you want, photoshop, paint, gimp, kai's power goo, anything goes. There are no limits on how much or how little editing you have to do, but if all you do is change it to black and white you don't have a great chance of winning. Don't expect a prize if you just add every effect in the list to the picture, either. There are no specific criteria, I'll just pick whichever edits I like the best, so be creative and artistic. Don't hesitate to crop out big chunks of it, resize it, stretch it, skew it, just make sure I can tell its the same photo after you're done with it. The picture is one of me snowboarding last season. The picture imbedded in this thread is a smaller version, below it is a link to the original version which I recommend you use for the actual editing since its 4 times bigger, giving you more to work with.

Here's the (huge) full size image.

When's the deadline - or just whenever you see one you really like?

Incorporate any other photos you want into the edit, make sure there's still a recognizeable chunk of mine in it. It should still mainly be a picture of me snowboarding, but you can put it in front of a cooler background.

haha I overlooked a lot of stuff because I just kinda made the contest up as I typed about the deadline is......10 days from now, at this exact time.

One last thing: Enter as many edits as you want. You won't get both prizes though. If the 2 best submissions come from the same person, I'll give them the 300k and the 100k goes to whoever comes in 2nd place, not whichever entry comes in 2nd place.

I went a little overboard on the illumination effect on the mountain, but apart from that I think it looks ok. Sorry about your friend though, he didn't make it back alive. :P

Hey. Sorry about being a little late on the contest but we stopped paying the internet bill and had to switch to a different ISP. I'm figuring out winners and sending prizes now.

First place goes to Aargh for this:

Sending prizes now, thanks for participating guys, and sorry again for the lateness.
