I am very much happy with this weeks outcome alright :]
Voting starts tomorrow, I shall post a thread most likely tonight though as I won't be around much tomorrow, and I'll start next week's SotW also which will be theme based which will render me unable to enter. At any rate, Deva needs to post a stock, I did VM them but seems they haven't been online.

About stocks though guys, make sure you upload them some place where they'll be visible to all that can see them, notably www.tinypic.com as for me personally, I can never see renders which are linked at planet render even though I'm a member there. But in the one case where that happend this week, they vm'd me the stock. So yeah, just watch out for that one guys.

Hey guys, some of you have probably noticed I've been pretty inactive around here lately.

I don't want to announce a leave or anything because I'll still venture to pc every now and again, but right now it's just not entertaining me so I'm probably not going to be here much.

So anyway, I'm gonna pass the icontest over, to anyone really, not the first in best dressed. Y'all should discuss who you think would do a good job.

Well I wouldn't mind taking it over. I already run SotW though so it wouldn't be too fair. So I guess, if there's no takers, I wouldn't mind hosting it. Otherwise someone claaaaim :]

    It's times like these where I would've loved to have a DSLR. We're not allowed to blur a background to add depth of field if our camera is only digital? ._. Damn what a disadvantage! If we're allowed to change the levels, why would adding depth of field be bad?
    Do you mean no splicing stuff together?

    I feel like anything should be allowed. If it's done tastefully.. why not? Why not be able to super-impose things together? If Man Ray could do it.. why can't we? If I take a photo of the sky, and someone looking like they're lying on a cloud.. why not? If someone truly has an artistic eye.. it can make or break the photo.

    My two cents. lol.. I guess you can't have my two cents without a complaint in there.

    Either way, I'm actually gonna try for this! But I'm totally going to take it with my Palm-Pre (phone) to give myself an artistic challenge >DDDD

    If you edit it with levels and the likes, that's legal. But, this is a Photography contest, not a graphics contest, so it boils down to that. So long as you just keep it looking natural there's no way we can tell but, don't go wild on editing.

    Moved your post on into the Q/A

      Two weeks from the posting date. So that's what, 11 or 12 days still? Not sure, but you have plenty of time.

      And so it begins.

      I haven't touched Photoshop in ages. That icon took a lot longer than it should due to me having to pretty much reteach myself. D:

      Any objections to holding off SOTW for a few weeks? I'm seeing a total downfall in activity when it comes to it, so I'm thinking I should just let it take a break. IOTW will continue as normal however.

        Haha, no reason you can't do something like it, unless it is exactly the same thing, then it is a bit strange. Haha.Loads of different types of pictures you can do with that light stream style.

        And thank you :3. I look forward to seeing your entry.

            Posted the new Icontest up.

            Sorry it took so long, I didn't know it just wasn't being post while my laptop is getting fixed. It's not completely finished, and I am very sorry for the long wait, everyone. -..-;

            I'm also getting #39 IOTW poll up, so, stay tuned for that!

            also, are there any threads about making icons?

            I would advise getting either GIMP or Photoshop, then learning a bit more about what goes into icons. So google some tutorials on improving images and using the programs you download. I will have a look for some icon tutorials, take a look on Deviant Art. Here is a tutorial I made.

            I would also like to note that I have opened the new IotW, which you may find here, this week's theme is Celebrity. However, SotW is going to be on hold until the activity in G&P rises again, or at least in the summer as very few people have been entering. Also note that I have added some rules to IotW, so take a look at them. Have fun guys!

              I'm sad about SOTW going down the drain

              Though I never imagined it to get this far (I was the one who created it on my old account /Circa)

              I'm glad that it sparked so many other competitions though and that it really livened this section up ;D

              Did anyone ever continue any Hall of Fames or Winners?

              There was one. Though I think it would be a nice idea to start a new one, which I think I might do actually.

                I think restarting the SOTW would be a really good idea, I used to enjoy taking part in it.
