For the 52nd Lightapalooza 2013 contest, we took inspiration from our visual effects software Photokey 6, and asked contestants to submit their best Photoshopped image. Products like Photoshop and Photokey create various illusions and effects through photographic editing. It was a joy to sift through all of the wonderful submissions this week. One particular image of the Arizona sunrise caught our eye and we would like to congratulate Paul DeCesare for winning this round of Lightpalooza 2013.
This breath-taking photograph is a great example of subtle Photoshop editing. As winner, Paul will be receiving a $50 gift card courtesy of Midwest Photo Exchange and one of the 200 Golden Tickets. This will enter him into the year-end drawing to win the Lightapalooza 2013 grand prize: $15,000 of preferred Westcott gear. Congratulations to Arizona’s Paul Decesare and thank you to everyone who participated in this Lightapalooza 2013 contest. Check back weekly for the new round of contests. This week’s contests include dream photo shoot locations, female outdoor portraits, and dramatic lighting examples. Good luck!
