Challenge#3 : December 2007 - Day to Night

Hello!

Our third challenge will run until Christmas with a nice and easy topic:
  • Day to Night

What do you have to do:

We will give you a raw image (see bellow) and you will have to turn it into a night scene, respecting the following requirements:

- You can ONLY use the image we provide you as base. No other image please.
- You cannot make changes to the main architecture
- You must have artificial lights (windows, light poles etc.); Not just an empty night scene, mkay?
- You can change the sky as you wish to reflect the night; You can add stars for instance or replace it with another one.
- Don't make it pure dark as we still want to see details in there


Here's the Hi-Res Raw Image (courtesy of sxc.hu ):


Deadline: 23th December 2007

Here's some inspiration:

Important: The winners will get the opportunity to publish on-site and in the magazine a making of article (if they want to). Considering this, please keep wips if you intend to create such an article.

Have fun!

Hey suirebit, you say "You can ONLY use the image we provide you. No other image please."
But we can use your image with another elements like trees or plants etc...

you can add elements like a new sky but you can't change the architecture of the image. So no you can't add trees that cover the church....the idea is to make the transition of a given stage where actors play, without changing it's 'layout' too much

Hi suirebit... so that means we can't also adjust the matte and make it bigger right? Like making the image a little bit bigger. Bummer, I was looking forward to that.

Hmm, haven't thought to that to be honest;

Ok, as long as you don't alter that base image too much, you can add things to the left or right to make it bigger.

Hey Suirebit, glad you're still on with the Matte contests, i'm hoping i'll get a little time to give this one a shot

Yeh extending this would be a good idea, though the distortion my cause a few issues.

Hey, glad to see you here Dave Yes, the distortion might cause issues but you can fix it if you go for extension (and might get a bonus at judging for that )

Thanks suirebit, so matte extension is okay just as long an there is no big alteration on the architecture got it! There is one little bit that is annoying me though, that kids with the bike, I know they can help with the scale, but would it also be okay if we can delete them? just checking, after all most real mattes doesnt have people right?

To everlite and all who plan to join... good luck!
