If you like photo magic, you will LOVE this post!

I just entered these images in “The Incredible Makeover” photo contest sponsored by NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals).
Check out their link
There are some inspiring, talented and crazy-weird entries. If you are into photographic art, you must take a look AND if you like like my image entitled NO TIME OUTS, please give me a 5 STAR rating.:)

If you flow this blog, you have seen the finished image before. But here it is again, with side by side comparison of the before image. The original image was taken at a high school swim meet. (I know…not too impressive) However, the reflection of the dive was the inspiration for this image. I took out the timer keepers and distractions from behind, but choose to leave in the leg reflections and flag as reminders that this swimmer is in a race with “no time outs”.

I used Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom tablet in making this image. They (plus, some patience) are incredible tools for these special projects. Again, if you like this, vote for my image by visiting this link

Here is a shout out to all you swimmers!!! NO TIME OUTS!!! What a great training mantra!

This poster was created for a high school swimmer. The image was originally taken at a swim meet last winter. I was asked to put a creative spin on it. I couldn’t decide if I like the black and white or color version better.
