Wow Nenya, that is just stunning, would love to see that Xmas tree in real life - love the rich golden tones to that too, very Xmasy!

I didn't notice the grey hair either, I have to admit, had to scroll back to have a look, and yeah, I agree, I like a man with a bit of distinguished grey, can't deny. So not a good look on a woman though, sadly, says she more silver than dark now and who couldn't live without her hair dye!!!!

That last one is lovely Lola, although I don't know that pic and it kind of doesn't look like him, can't quite put my finger on it, still a handsome boy though and I love the snowflake effects.

Shaping up to be another tough decision at polling time already...

Gads, poor bloke, he really lucked out in the 'girth' department...I need a magnifying glass...luckily the swingage scene offers so much more

It's one of the uber-photoshopped Uniqlo pics Luna, can't believe they messed with perfection!

Lovely vintage effect Lola, I really like what you've done!

I totally agree with you Luna, tough decisions will be required again for sure!

But the more I'm excited of what you all do with the photos and the theme!

Wow, they really messed with it didn't they - obviously haven't seen these - will have to go find an look.

Thanks for the update Gem, and yes, why mess with perfection? Idiots.

Luna that pic is in this month Challenge announcement...go to the first post and see it...
I chose this one because of the snow...Kat wanted just shirtless pics for the challenge,but then she thought that perhaps some people wouldn't find them apropriate for Christmas,so we thought in use two shirtless,representing summer Christmas,and two with lots of clothes for the northern winter...anyway I mistook the pic,I wanted a different close up,but when I realized the mistake Kat have posted the announcement and...well I let it like that.
Yes those Uniqlo shots are terribly photoshoped(in a bad way...)I always prefer him "au aturel",he's gorgeous enough.But to be fair,if you examine the pics that his cousin took of him along the years,all of them are retouched...you can't see a freckle,a facial hair out of its place or the bags under his eyes...and none complain about this.

Thank you for your lovely comments,you all...

Thanks Lola, I went back to the beginning of the challenge earlier to re-read (I tend to scan these days, either that or not coming here at all if a time-challenged day) and saw the guidelines/pics. I just hadn't revisited that thread before so hadn't seen the new photoshopped pics so had no clue! I was wondering why he looked so different!

Anyway, I think the shirtless pics and the nod to a southern hemisphere warm Xmas is a lovely idea (thanks for that) and I am sure I will be blown away by all the incredible artwork to come - I'm used to shirtless men at Xmas, so go for it, I say!

I often look at pics and wonder where his bags have gone, I love the calendars on my wall, because most, if not all, of those shots are untouched and therefore all the more appealing because of it. They just can't seem to help themselves though - case in point that pic of Keira Knightly from King Arthur - completely flat chested in the English posters and with an enhanced voluptuous chest in the American posters (same pic). She thought it was hilarious but once she gets that shirt off, there is no hiding the fact that she has mozzie bites on her chest and that's about it! No amount of photoshopping can alter that, more's the pity eh?

Right then, whose turn is it next to entertain us and make us drool...

Aha!this is a challenge,is not about the pictures themselves,but about what we can do with them...if we provide just the perfect pics for a christmas postcard...then,where's the challenge?we have to make things a bit tougher...that's the fun!

Thank you, girls!

Lola, I looove your entry! The effects you´ve used are amazing. Great work.

About the pics...I really don´t understand why they have to photoshop these pics but they are great to create some Christmas stuff with them.


Here is my second one....

Great one again, Carola!

(Yummy... do I see star-shaped cinnamon biscuits there?... *grabs them and runs*)

But with the weather like this, there is no way I could get into Christmas mood right now. It's almost 15° C over here in Germany. Warmer than in August/September actually. I start to think that the axis of the earth tilted a bit and we're getting closer to Southern Hemisphere conditions. Soon enough we will be able to celebrate Christmas having pool-parties and cocktails.

Yummy indeed Nenya! I could climb right on in, plop myself down in front of the fire and have a taste. And I'm not talking about the cookies...

Sorry, got distracted for a moment. Beautiful and festive Nenya!

Mmm Nenya, wouldn't mind treating myself to that! Lovely work

Very festive CD-well for the Northern Hemisphere of course! Love the decorated edge, is that a brush you've used?
