(also posted in the similar topic thread)

Just for rules clarification purposes, the challenge states, "Use two photographs and creatively arrange them side-by-side (horizontally OR vertically) to create an imaginative new scene." I read this to mean that there needs to be a distinct line of delineation between the two photos, with each piece being pure content from that shot. No blending along the border between the two, even if that border is straight.

Do I have that correct?

Would "horizontally OR vertically" also preclude a diagonal or mixed border (i.e. two photos with upper-left/bottom right being from one and upper-right/bottom-left from another)?

Based on my assumptions, I would expect that these would all be DNMC - expert editing additions aside. The first and last have a distinct area of division between the two, so I would not consider them "side-by-side". The first also appears to be a single scene that may have been split in two to give the appearance of two photographs instead of actually being two photographs.

The second is a vertical combination of two shots, but even if the frame were removed from the two there is blending involved to merge the shots instead of simply laying them side-by-side.

I bring this up because I'd like to hear some clarification from the SC as to what that parameters are around these things.

And while I'm piling on, I am also assuming both shots must be taken within the challenge window - no dipping into old catalogs for either?

Correct.

Those all are expert editing shots, so they tend to be irrelevant. However, your questions shpuld be answered by the FLAGGED rule in this challenge:

"You MUST use two images. They may be juxtaposed horizontally or vertically, with or without a gutter/border between them. Parts of one image may overlap the other"

I think the last one would be OK, because of the extra rule: You MUST use two images. They may be juxtaposed horizontally or vertically, with or without a gutter/border between them.
07/08/2015 06:36:11 AM · #12
can we add extra canvas to allow for lining up the shots perfectly or does that violate the rules of advanced?

Thanks. I keep forgetting that the text on the main page with all the challenges listed may be abbreviated from what's on the challenge page itself, even after clicking the "[more]" link. Sorta hate that, but that's on me.

Yes yes fun fun... This is what I was trying to do with the suggestion of my creative perspective as well..

Looking forward to this challenge

Further clarification question, if ya don't mind. Do they have to be two distinctly separate subjects (example apple and orange) placed side by side to make something that looks like it's one object, or can it be two similar photos (example fresh apple and rotted apple) that go together well? No blending, obvious distinction between the two photos, obviously.

I'm thinking the sky's the limit on each side provided that they're distinct photos. Heck, I suspect you could put two photos of the same thing side by side if you wanted to - "aged 1/15 sec".

So we can go as far as Art's ear pulling diptych IOW an out-of-bounds type thing? That seems like a lot of Expert to me.

Before I shoot for this challenge, can someone explain to me how to do this in photoshop?

That's up to the voters. It's not prohibited.

1. Take two images and process them separately to what you want them to be, more or less.
2. flatten each image so they're only one layer each. Save as a different file name.
3. Increase the canvas size on the first one so it's big enough to hold both.
4. Copy the second one (select all, then copy) and paste it on the first one.
5. use the 4-headed arrow tool to drag the images around and relate to each other the way you want them to.

That's it in a nutshell. The image that moves will be the image on whichever layer is active in the layers palette. You can resize images in either layer with image>transform>scale...

is selective masking allowed on one or both images for overlap purposes?

Thanks Robert for your help.

In principle, of course it is. JUst be aware we are results-oriented, not process-oriented, when we evaluate possible irregularities.

Look, at heart this is a very simple challenge: Photograph a guy's torso from behind, photograph a beach, and give him a peach for a butt. A lot of the fun is in NOT blending, so the BG skies (or whatever) don't quite match. Don't overthink it, just JUXTAPOSE 'til something clicks :-)

Do the advanced rules apply to each of the 2 photos that are to be used? For example can each of the 2 be a focus-stack of multiple images?
