ETSOOI-139 Launched

January 24th, 2022
Thank you to Nick @nickspicsnz for hosting the shortlist for the recent etsooi challenge, to all who took part and voted. I am most surprised to have won, as it is only since lockdown that I've changed my stance on processing and editing. I used to think it was cheating.................... so this is a real turn up for the books for me!

So on to ETSOOI-139

My good friend Katy @grammyn started the very first ETSOOI challenge after a friend used the phrase to describe a photo that didn't turn out as she hoped. ETSOOI - 'Editing The Sorryness Out Of It' aka 'Edit The S#*t Out Of It!’ 🙃

This challenge is all about no boundaries in processing and editing your images, so just go for it and let your creativity run wild! Or be subtle and make your photo that little bit more perfect.

Just two rules – your starting image must be taken within the challenge time frames and you must have depressed the shutter to make the image.

There is a plethora of tools available, Affinity, Photoshop, Lightroom, Topaz and a number of websites that are freely available:; ; (also as a phone app ) www.goart.;

Or there are 'phone and tablet apps such as: Snapseed, PicsArt, Pencil Sketch Free Camera360, Deep Art Effects, Distressed FX+, Hyperspektiv, ToonCamera

Enter as many images as you like, but only one of your entries may be chosen as a finalist. The winner will have the honour of hosting the next ETSOOI challenge.

Start Date – entries back dated to 19th January 2022
End date – 5th March 2022
