What do you think? I found it fascinating! We didnít get as many entries as I hoped, but it still seemed to generate interest.

If you want to continue, what would you like to see?

Iíd like lighting help from LevT
Bug help from Roz (although thereís no bugs here because itís winter)
Landscape help from any of the landscape people - particularly can you make an an uninteresting landscape interesting? if so, how?
Who are our photoshop geniuses? Editing help/suggestions would be cool

Iím happy to offer my own knowledge for a mentor challenge, if anyone would find it helpful.

I can make an uninteresting landscape pop, do it all the time :-)

Margaret for Landscapes! Awesome lighting and photoshop skills for getting that "pop". Seriously.

Although Robert is all right too. :-)

More than one mentor would be fine :-) Margaret and I are very, very different (wink).

I don't use Photoshop, only Lightroom and sometimes Luminar AI. My main advice on landscape is location, location, location! But PP is very important too. And the light, real or unreal ;)

Many people asked me about the painterly look using the Dynamic Auto Painter software so maybe there would be some interest in that.

So what about Bear leads on landscape and I will try to explain how I do the painterly look?

Might not be the best challenge to mentor in midwinter, though... Just sayin'... Seems like most of our people are North of the equator...

Maybe that's the challenge -- turning a sow's ear into a silk purse! Although you people up north would kill with snow photos!

I'd like to participate and learn from the tutorials of any of these awesome photographers - count me in!

Not much interest in painterly look and I am going away for most of January so I wouldn't be available in any case.

We could have Art give us a collection of Godzilla and he could mentor a 'zilla challenge!

I'd be interested in getting tips on that when you get back.

As would I, actually. I'm trying to muddle my way into it and not on the whole doing very well, except my "Feast" entry seemed to work...

This thread is sooo last year. Sorry it slipped by me.

My resource collection is always freely available. I'm not sure what "mentoring" involves, but willing to do what I can.

Ohhhh I see I am way late here and have read Margaret' post that she won't be here, but thought it would be cool to get a picture from Bear with an edit from Margaret, if that makes sense?

Did you photograph those or create them with some type of software?

Some I did, some I uh... well, if it's a sticky point, I can provide a legit fresh set.

Mentoring would be actually pretty cool. I suck at doing compositions, and never had the patience to figure out why I suck so bad at it. I could try it and Art could figure out why I'm so bad at it! Awesome!!
