I entered a comp. on About.com called the 2006 Photo Hoax Contest. I didn't think i would do well at all due to the fact that it would have been the first time i used photo-shop to do anything complicated or of this type. What a shock i got this morning when i checked, only to find i had come 5th out of thousands
Some of these peoples work was amazing.

I am really happy and proud now as i didn't think it was that good of a job that i had done.

Here is the pic i entered:



It was made up of a school hallway pic and a model out of a clothing catalogue, with lots of filters and effects.

If you would like to see the picture on About.com use the link below. They have put the top 65 up and I'm 5th
.

2006 Hoax Picture Results

Well i just thought i would share my good news, unfortunately i didn't finish high enough to win a prize but 5th out of 1000's isn't too shabby.

Congrats PW! That's quite the achievement! I would've bumped you up AT LEAST one place, cause the human-face-fly isn't that good. Yours is better.

Thank you very much Kelter.

I am hoping to go to collage in September to learn how to do this properly and build websites. Something i have wanted to do for a while.

At the moment i do them for fun along with Avatars for ATS members, but it would be nice to do it for a living.
