Etsooi-114 "Before and After"

October 7th, 2019
Firstly, many thanks to Amy for hosting the last round of ETSOOI. Many thanks also to all of you who checked out the wonderful entries and voted for your favourite. I am very honoured to have won.
And now on to ETSOOI -114..... “Before and After”.

Sometimes there is a theme associated with this challenge – and I thought we might try something a little different this time. I have often wondered what these images looked like before they were ETSOOI-ed, so for this round could you please organize some sneaky or simple way (eg collage, reflection, insert, “double exposure” , simple composite…..) in which we can see the image before and after you have edited it.
THEME: ”Before and After”
START DATE: 29 th september (backdated to the close of the last round)
END DATE: 28 october
TAG: etsooi-114

ETSOOI is an acronym started by MaryBeth @espyetta. It stands for EDITING THE SORRY-NESS OUT OF IT - which basically means editing your picture in any way you like.”

If you are new to editing/processing here are some great websites you can use besides photoshop:
And remember that is available to all ACE members – perfect to do some final touch ups after uploading your image. To utilize this just check out the section labelled "Photo Details" underneath your thumbnails after you have uploaded your entry.

You can also use mobile/cell apps such as:

Pencil Sketch Free
Deep Art Effects

You can use more than one program/app per image. This challenge is very relaxed so just play around with your photos and see what you can create.
The only rule is that your starting image must have been taken within the time frame of this round of the challenge.

Please enter as many images as you like however, only one of your entries can be chosen as a finalist. The winner will host the next ETSOOI challenge.
