Elements Challenge was hosted by Grant Dixon from 2003 to 2008
and offered people of a variety of skill levels a weekly image for
artistic exploration. Frequented by members of the Adobe Photoshop
Elements Forum and Elements
Village, it presented their interpretations of the original
image. Participants varied widely in their degree of experience
and artistic ability, but managed to produce unique, beautiful and
provoking images every week.
my own efforts over the course of the Challenge along with some
comments on how I came up with the idea for each image and how I
made it. You can browse through them a number of ways. Start with
a gallery of my favorites, or see what I did with a particular original.
You can also view a random gallery of ten of my images and then
look at the originals and my commentary. I've
also added a Themes thumbnail gallery with
images organized by holiday.
added reviews of some Photoshop books I've
found useful. If you have suggestions for other material or techniques,
let me know.
hope you enjoy the images. I'm always interested in what others
think of my efforts. If you have a comment, please e-mail
