Topaz Labs Adjust AI Contest

I did a post about The Topaz Labs Adjust AI offering . . . and I’m now following up with another post because Topaz Labs are running a contest (entry by July 1st) for the best use of Adjust AI.

The winner gets a copy of Adjust AI . . . which seems strange since the winner likely already has Adjust AI. Wait; someone could download a trial of the software and hope they win the software.

Regardless, I’m entering for the fun of it since I’m confident I will not win.

These are smaller versions of the photos I’m considering for the contest. When I choose the submissions-worthy photos I’ll send the full-size versions  . . . but, you can see all the full size photos right now by going to the SmugMug Gallery HERE.

So, the way this works, I will show the original and then show the version processed using Adjust AI.

I could show them like this:

01 – Original

01 – HDR Daylight (modified)

I think that makes it difficult to compare the two versions. Instead, I’ll do a massive gallery (53 photos, so maybe not all that massive) and thus when readers scroll through it, they can quickly and easily see the difference between the original and “adjusted” versions by scrolling back and forth for any photo of interest.

Also, when I write “modified” in the captions, it means I made some adjustments to the preset listed.

Okely Dokely; here we go . . .

Note how on the last photo I stacked some effects atop each other. It adds even more variations to what you can do.

You can list your favorites in the comments. Or not. I’ll likely pick and submit 5 or 6 photos (depending on how I feel about giving away my photos) and I wouldn’t mind knowing where my tastes fall relative to those of my readers. If a fan of Monty Python, tell me what favorite character no one expects appears in the gallery.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    The church, the collection of sea stars and the turtle face are my favs

      I could have sworn I replied to this but I used the phone so Google or some other conglomerate intervened and removed my response.

      Anyway, thank you, Pam. I assume you mean the color version of the church and I could have guessed you liking the turtle.

      Thanks again.

    Two tie for favorite: #18 jellyfish and #22 coral with fish.
    Then, in no specific order:
    #7 & #10 Alaska (or wherever)
    #11 & #13 turtle
    #14 coral denizens
    #16 & #17 jellyfish
    Overall, very impressive!

      Thanks, Ann. Surprised a bit by your first choices. Not the Jellyfish, but I’d have thought you’d like #20 over #22.

      Of course, there are no right or wrong answers since it’s all based on how they strike us at the moment.

      Thanks again.


  3. fantabulous gallery Emilio!!

    Good luck! Let us know how it goes and what photos YOU choose!

    I’m baffled by the Monty Python reference. But, I’m very tired and it’s late and by brain is going “What? Who? Where?” :-D
    HUGS!!! :-)

    1) first church cause it almost looks like everyone who ever went there
    2) the bird for looking so serious
    3) the wispy clouds
    4) the electric blue marine animals cause beautiful colour vibrant
    5) the spanish inquisition for looking not too pleased
    6) the shrimp type (?) fish for just doing its thing

    Good luck with the contest :)


  6. How did this contest go?!
    I hope you all had a great 4th! Any fireworks, hot dog, flag, watermelon, parade, mosquito, etc., photos to show us?!
    HUGS to you and Melisa! :-)

      The contest link is in the previous comment; you’ll note none of my photos are included with the ones they liked. It’s fine as I had predicted as much.

      As for the questions: yes, no, yes, yes, no, yes, and no.

      I didn’t take any photos but we had a good time. Hope your answers are: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and no for the mosquitos.
