August Fur & Feathers Challenge

Hello, everyone and welcome to the August, 2017 Animal and Wildlife Challenge. I hope lots of you decide to join in this month!

One of the photos is from the PaintMyPhoto library, one is from WC image library and the rest are mine, and you have permission to use these photos as you wish! Crop, distort, combine, abstract, copy exactly, or whatever else you can think of.

Please don't upload your pictures until the 20th August. It's much more fun when everyone uploads at more or less the same time. Please use this thread to discuss your work and progress until the reveal.

Enjoy the challenge.

I must sincerely apologise to Penny and Members! I have accidentally deleted Penny's photo of the 2 Alpacas and can't find it again to post it. I don't seem to be able to post another Alpaca photo either - so here's the link in the Wet Canvas ref library to the Alpaca photos.

Re: August Fur & Feathers Challenge

Thank you, Kay and George. I'm pleased you like them. 😎
Yes, the horn is a mystery. I know that, sometimes, when they are de-horned as calves, the horns can re-grow and that may have happened. Very often, though, Dairy Shorthorns are left with their horns!

Re: August Fur & Feathers Challenge

Ok folks - you may see I've accidentally messed up Penny's beautiful Thread of ref photos! !!!!!!

I'm sincerely sorry Penny and take full responsibility for accidentally deleting the beautiful Alpaca photo you'd already posted.
I've posted the link to the Alpaca ref photos in Wet Canvas ref library instead, so hope this is ok for everyone?

Such is a day in the life of a Moderator!!!!

Re: August Fur & Feathers Challenge

Dont worry, Viv. I thought that the PMP site was to let people use photos. That was my error, not yours.

The alpacas are my photo, so I post it again.

I will also post a replacement for the deleted photo.

Re: August Fur & Feathers Challenge

Not a problem at all. I won't be using the PMP site in future - if I put my photos on a public site, I wouldnt expect people to ask permission to use them!

Re: August Fur & Feathers Challenge

Penny - you can use the photos to make art from but the actual photo remain the property of the photographer and has their copyright on them. Which means you can't copy and post the actual photo (or change it in anyway). PMP photographers post their photos on the PMP Website for members to use to make art from on their Website.

The same rule applies to photos posted on the Internet on Facebook, or in any magazine, newspaper, or whatever - the photo remains the property of the photographer, so permission has to be sought from the photographer, to use that photo and post it anywhere.
The rules of copyright apply to all photos posted anywhere in public. Copyright is a complicated issue, but a breach of Copyright can be costly.

Re: August Fur & Feathers Challenge

So you can make art - say a photo-realistic piece of work - and allow people to copy it, or sell it, etc - doesn't make sense to me, but I understand it's copyright rules and has to be followed. All we want to do is enjoy making art, not profit from the photo. I certainly won't be using their site again. Let's hope this ends the matter and get on with our recreational activity!😎😁
