Title: OFFICIAL GATLIGHT V3 PHOTO(SHOP) CONTEST
Post by: mobile1 on August 20, 2007, 09:21:19 PM
Ok in fact we are having 2 competitions and the winners will get each a GatLight V3.

The Two competitions are:
1) Best Photoshopped GatLight V3 Photo(s) - so anyone can win even if you don't own a GatLight. How? You download the Gatlight Image Pack at http://www.gatlight.com/hosted/v3photopack.zip (http://www.gatlight.com/hosted/v3photopack.zip) which contains high resolution GatLight Photos. Also more photos can be found in the GatLight V3 Thread (see my signature) as well as on gatlight.com click on photos. You can also take any existing photo posted here and start from there. Than use your imagination and photoshop them, collage, merge, distort, blend in with whatever you want, extend it, bend it, morph it, make a comic, picture story, anything you can think off and that can be posted here. Than use imageshack.us (or whatever you want) and upload the highest resolution result you got and post it here. Also mention that your submission is for the photoshop contest not the photo contest. Also feel free to describe what you used to create your artwork, how you did it, what you did (if you want to - that way us normal mortals can learn something).

2) Best GatLight Photo - here you need a GatLight (preferably a V3) to take a photo.. can be yours or a friend's etc. Same thing again, upload it to imageshack.us and post a link. You can use photoshop to do normal image corrections (particle/dust removel, contrast, brightness, color balance etc.etc.). However no major operations like replacing backgrounds etc, those go into the first contest. The photos submitted for the first contest (check them out to see what you're up against) can not be reentered (we wanna see new pics).

Kyle and I will than preselect our favorite pictures for each contest. We'll than have Forum users vote on the best ones for each contest. And the winners will either get a free GatLight V3 or maybe even our next flashlight we're working on (which I think is equally dramatic - but different).

Also you agree that all works of art and all photos and submissions become public domain - meaning anyone (including us) can use them for any purpose.

Anyway good luck to everyone. We'll likely close the competition around Christmas... and lets see some photos...

Here are some current entries of people...

C: WadeF

Here's my entry for the Photoshop contest. To celebrate the rebirth of the Transformers I outfitted Ironhide with Gatlight blasters, and worked a Gatlight into one of the round buildings in the background.

Here's my 2nd entry. For this I used a photograph I actually took of Port Headlight Lighthouse in Maine, click to view larger:

This next shot would be impossible with current photographic techniques, AFAIK. I zoomed in and focused for the shot of the moon, zoomed out and focused for the shot of the V3, then combined the two images in Photoshop.

For these next two, I did the usual stuff, plus pixelated the background

Here are my entries. All entries are photoshop. What I lack in artistic skill I tried to make up with creative slogans or have some caption that relates.

Predators in your neighborhood? Get 'em with Gatlight.

Prometheus was the son of a Titan, one of the giant Elder Gods of Greek mythology. Prometheus was a friend to mortal men; his best-known act was sneaking into the heavens and stealing fire from the gods, which he then delivered to humans on Earth.

Meanwhile, back at the Lumencraft laboratory, "Prometheus", upon returning from CREE, creates and gives mankind the torch.

Quote
Zeus took fire away from man. However, Prometheus lit a torch from the sun and brought it back again to man. Zeus was enraged that man again had fire. He decided to inflict a terrible punishment on both man and Prometheus.

To punish man, Zeus had Hephaestus create a mortal of stunning beauty.

NASA said he could only bring one flashlight this time, not all of them. That was easy.

Gatlight - NOT your every day carry.

Is there a chance to switch Beauty And The Beam with NASA so there is continuity with the story? If not, I understand.


*edit. Never mind, I thought of a solution.

I'm sleepy and should go to bed but I'm disappointed. I really wanted to win this so I spent hours upon hours going through images and racking my brain for catchy slogans. I was so excited about this I lay awake half the night thinking about something clever. I can't relate to people that just disappear - showing lack of sincerity and integrity. These are two of the most important human attributes to me but they are hard to come by in this day and age. I expect people to expect that of me but many don't even posses it themselves.

We'll chose the winners soon. Kyle and I will look through all the entries and select our favorite ones. I'll then post'em and have everyone vote to select the final winners.

And of course the winner will get one of the new GatLights I wrote about in the V3 thread... with V-bin LED, the new milled knurl, gold plated knob thread... and a couple other improvements...

Here's my last minute entry inspired by Salvador Dali called 'Melting Gatlight'. Found an old picture of my previous Gatlight & played around with Liquify & Neon Glow & Diffuse Glow filters in Photoshop. Of course you wouldn't want this to happen to your Gatlight nor am I suggesting that it could possibly happen under 'normal use'.  :P Hope I'm not too late.... :-[

Ok we will break down the voting into two phases...
First until end of months we will vote for the best photograph. We have done an initial prescreening and did an initial pre selection.
You are invited to cast your votes for the remaining 19 finalists at the link below:
http://www.lumencraft.net/competition.htm

Then the winner of the photo competition will be picked end of June. At that point we will put up the entries for the Photoshop competition and will do the same process.

Good luck and happy voting...

My Hello Kitty themed photo was a bitch to setup. My daughter still won't talk to me because of what I did to her doll, but I don't think I'm actually her biological dad anyway.
