Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor have made distinguished careers out of manipulating images: he's an old-school darkroom guy, while she's embraced the computer. For this challenge, they provided ten images for you to remix into an original composition.
four images from two image from 1890 and 2012
from a swing site in front of a home called The Bower. owned by the Dandridge of old Virginia. Still in the family. the swing location could very well be the same then and now.

Shoot! I missed the deadline!!!
man's eyes + marble face + trees from path
I tried to use almost all images in combination to create a kind of bizarre fantasy world.
It is a airplane in the sky and two people parachuting out of the airplane.
The beauty of Mother Nature
I wanted to do something simple, but still create an interesting and ethereal feeling that can attach itself to the photograph.
I submitted this on Saturday December 1st. I spent a long time on it. Then I hop online today to see if there were any results and to see the image on the website.... and it's not there. I am bummed. I hope you will still consider me in the contest. I checked through all 31 pages of responses and did not see mine there. I hope it works this time.
Postcard: Coney Island Come Back, You Hear Me!
I took the original background photo at photography school over the summer. We were learning different angles and ways to shoot. I decided to get out of my comfort zone and take a risk with it. Then I decided to add the bird and the hand to the photo.
Just a little side project i decided to do in my free time, Instead of using the images provided and then using other images as some, if not most people have done, I only used the photos provided for the Mash-Up
I submitted this yesterday, but got no confirmation, so I am just making sure you got it...
René Treviño, Butterflies Encircling the Man in a Bowler Hat, 2012, acrylic on frosted Mylar, 11 x 11 in.
I was immediately drawn to the butterfly image. In a flash I thought it should become a wreath or frame of butterflies…then when I saw the cute gentleman in the bowler hat I knew what would be in the frame. I stretched/distorted the oval into a circle in Photoshop, and then my husband helped me create the circle of butterflies using a combination of Google Sketch Up and Photoshop. Once I had these elements that I had distorted and manipulated on the computer, I printed them out so that I could use them as references for my small 11 x 11 inch painting. This is a similar process to what I do for a lot of my artwork. I start with research, then photo manipulation, and then I use the manipulated (re-mixed) images to create my paintings. This painting is acrylic on frosted Mylar, and though it looks like a digital image (especially when you look at it on a computer) it is actually hand painted with tiny paintbrushes entirely by hand. The finish is matte, and since the frosted Mylar is transparent, I can paint on both sides. So in this image, the black is painted from the front, and the color is painted on the back. In spite of how tight the results often are, I love that my hand and my collected marks are in the finished results…it is a process that fuses digital and analog.
