Something for the weekend - Part 27 - Lord (or Lady) of the Ring

Last week, Trevor set us a great challenge with quite difficult perspective. So for this week I've gone for a simple object - a ring. How will you use it in a scene? Will you create a new Lord of the Rings style scene, will someone wear it, or will you use it as something else entirely?

Anything goes as long as it meets the forum rules on decency, copyright etc.

Anyone is welcome to have a go - whether you are a complete beginner or a Photoshop expert.

There are no prizes - just the chance to practice, show off, or bring a bit of humour and fun.

When posting back your edited images please use jpeg and downsize to 1200px on the long side.

To download the image below without the forum scaling artefacts, right click and then use Save Image As / Save Picture As (or similar depending on your browser).

Have fun.

Great choice.  My backyard is presently 110 F or 43.33 C in the shade!

Blimey Nancy.  That is _seriously_ HOT!   I have a feeling that you live in Texas?

This was more of an exercise in masking and freehand perspective as anything else, but it was fun to do, and I had to think about it in a couple of places.  Sit vis nobiscum

Nancy, I don't know about LA, but I thought San Diego had a reasonably stable climate, which Google confirms


So LA's current conditions are extraordinary.  Are records being broken?  How are you guys for water now?  I believe you have had some relief from the long lasting drought, that saw Lake Mead reduced to a puddle a couple of years ago.

Someone asked me today if I'd transferred a DVD he gave months ago, to MP4?  Talk about panic.  I barely remember him giving it to me, yet alone where to find it.  I am now hoping against hope that it has not been 'tided' away to the waist bin.

Some great entries overnight.

Jane I love the candle holder.

USS Norway - good job on the flames , but the hallmarks have gone. I cry "fake" !!  Or am I not allowed to when the original is just a 3D model? 

Excellent Trevor - the film is recreated for our forum !

Keep them coming - I'm going to have to think hard for a good one this week

Little known fact:

Ring of Fire was written by June Carter Cash and Merle Kilgore. June was the daughter of Mother Maybelle Carter and was part of the Carter Family. She wrote it about her relationship with Johnny, who also sang her song.

Great picture, Dave!

Dave 'had' to be expecting that one.  I've had a lot of mileage out of my 'Dave Head'.

I could do with some more source material to add to my Heads folder.

[EDIT] Jane I think I must have missed your Ring of Fire information post, as we sort of cross-posted.  Very impressive.  Is your middle name Alexa?

I've come up with several stories. Here's one:

Dear John,

I am very happy to hear the news that you are getting married. It is now time to give you this family ring that I promised you so many years ago. When your father gradually became sick and knew that his life on this earth was coming to an end, he took it off his finger and asked me to keep it for you until you announced your wedding date. It is with both tears and smiles that I give this ring to you today.

Love,

Mom

P.S. It was hard to work in "gradually"!
