Earth Canvas photochop is a hard one to explain briefly in an article title, so we’ll just rip the contest description from the Worth1000 page.
Are we supposed to believe that Italy was ‘accidentally’ shaped like a boot? That Mt. Rushmore just ‘happened’ to contain the faces of four American presidents? Obviously God was feeling a little artistic with nature. Now it’s our turn.
The rules of this game are thus: Use nature and geography as your canvas. (i.e. Make a lake shaped like a teletubbie, or volcanic rock look like a dragon, constellation patterns that seem to look like images, or rock shapes that seem to resemble actual things). So long as it is inanimate (i.e. no animal print patterns) it is fair game for your pictures, patterns and symbols. Manmade objects are allowable too if they are extremely large and unconnected in nature (i.e. the lights of North America seen from outerspace) otherwise stick to ‘natural’ occurences. As always, quality is a must. We will remove poor entries no matter how much we like you. You’ll have 48 hours for this contest, so make your submission count.
Hit List: Spacescapes. Use it and get disqualified.
As always, there are some well done images and some not so well done images. They are all better than what I could do, but some really stuck out to my eye as especially well done. Here are a couple of samples. Be sure to hit the contest page to pick out your favorites. I really like the earth and air spirit images, too, but decided that you might need some incentive to head over and view more.
