Photoshop challenge - Make an HTC 7 Mozart photo look good!

Posted on January 31, 2011 | 2 minute read

I went to the Hula Bula bar with some friends this past Saturday, one of which was Baz with his HTC 7 Mozart. At one point in the night Baz took the following photo on his phone: [caption id="attachment_26685” align="aligncenter” width="224” caption="The original photo taken with Baz’s HTC 7 Mozart”]Basket on head[/caption]

As you can see, the Mozart’s camera made me and everything around me look like a lobster (“but, Liza, maybe you did look like a lobster!” - no I did not). So to save an otherwise decent picture Ellen, Baz and I tried to fix it.

Baz’s rendition was as follows: [caption id="attachment_26686” align="aligncenter” width="224” caption="Baz’s retouching skills”]HTC Mozart photo[/caption] A strong attempt!

Ellen’s attempt to out-perform Baz’s photo manipulation skills revealed a slightly more natural look: [caption id="attachment_26687” align="aligncenter” width="224” caption="Ellen’s rendition”]HTC 7 Mozart photo retouch[/caption] Very nice.

Not to be outdone, I revealed my own version: [caption id="attachment_26688” align="aligncenter” width="224” caption="I went for the natural look”]Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m beautiful[/caption]

If you feel like joining in on the action, take the original and make it awesome, then post it in a comment below. But please, nothing dirty or gross. You know who you are.

Holy crap. Simon posted this on Facebook today. I cringed and had to check the mirror to make sure I didn’t actually resemble this. If this was a horror photo manipulation contest, Simon would win for terrifying the subject. Awesome!
