1st place
When Worlds Collide by Dunstickin

questjester: Incredibly complex and sophisticated image layering woven in there. If you did this while you were "learning", I'm thinking that you really didn't need the class. It's excellent!

Flmngseabass: WOW!! Congratulations Bob for taking 1st place!!! This is a fabulous image and I new at once you would be in the top!!!

2nd place
Cottage Industry by Tootles

LynEve: A delightful work Sandra and well deserving of its placement. It reminds me of an illustration in an old fairy story book - so lovely

Nikoneer: I'm glad you discussed all the work you did on it, and now it reminds me so much of the work of the 19th century French impressionists. Delightful and definitely "worth it." My major in college was for fine art and I spent a heckuva lot of time at an easel. I absolutely love the fact that I can do the same thing at my computer, where I can save various versions of my work until I'm satisfied, something I could never do with canvas and paint. Also, now that I'm in my 60s, I can't sit upright at an easel for hours and hours like I used to do. I highly suggest you enter this in the current manipulation contest. It's a placer for sure.

3rd place
Going walkabout by gonedigital

Flmngseabass: Congratulations Phil for making 3rd place here. A well deserved credit:)!!:)

Nikoneer: True photo-manipulation is so much more than simply using a texture filter or a piece of software designed to create an effect. I've done a lot of manips in my time, including one I shot of a blue car passing me on a curve in South Dakota's Spearfish Canyon, reproducing the car multiple times from about 6 shots I got of it as it passed. The car was in the open, however, with no trees or iron bars in front of it, unlike this submission of yours. I know precisely what it takes to try a manip like this, taking all the obstructions and different shadows into consideration. This, in my 33-year-photographer's professional opinion, is masterful, and certainly deserves the top position in the contest. Kudos in advance.

4th place
Elven Tree by bfrank

corngrowth: Congrats Frank, for your 4th place in the 'Manipulation' contest.
Well done!

questjester: A beautiful, fanciful, imaginative manipulation, Frank! Full of rich colors and pleasantly plump layers of elemental, flowing woodland shapes.


5th place
The Seasons Change Quickly in Dakota by Nikoneer

corngrowth: This can happen only in North Dakota, 'Nik' (☺).
Great manip however. Meets perfectly the contest topic.
Good luck with this entry, my friend!
