Photo Rehab Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrap up #12 New Challenge #13

Cover Makeover is the new themed feature of the Photo Rehab, created by me and Desley from Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist.

Every week we give a new prompt, and participants go wild, using all their creativity, and producing fabulous covers far better than the original ones used by publishers.

Welcome to last week’s Wrap up and to the new challenge.

This was last week’s theme: The Cabin in the Woods

And here are the gorgeous covers made by the participants. We’ve included the links to their blogs, so that you can visit them to learn how they made their covers. Go and visit!

Thank you all for taking part and bringing so much creativity and originality to this challenge! We love what you do!

Joanne from Coffee Fuels my Photography, shares that though horror movies are not really her thing, with Chris Hemsworth in it, she may just have to watch it! And with that inspiration she went to Lightroom to make this awesome cover.

Julie from Julie Powell: Photographer & Graphic Artist, is a fan of Joss Whedon, but she hadn’t seen this movie before. She nonetheless, followed a very thorough process to create this cover, which looks fabulous.

Next is Disperser, who of course, went through post processing like a pro and produced several versions. He then created a poll and asked his readers to vote. So far, it seems that version 5 – called festive because of the red color – is leading the race. Here you have them all. Lots of fun!

Now it’s Tildy from Beespeak, using various apps to produce this cover, and achieving a fine result. Should I say that she also doesn’t like horror movies? Desley and I are getting the message!

Next is Sabina and Toby from Library of Cats, who also don’t like horror movies, and despite that joined the challenge and made a fantastic cover.

We promise to not make another horror cover again!
So, ready to go for the next challenge?

Here is how it works.

  • Every Thursday we will give you the name of a book, music or movie, etc. and share with you our take on a new cover.
  • You will prepare you own cover by using your archive photos or shooting a new one to go with the theme.
  • Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to Ping Back (hyperlink) to this post. You may also copy your link to the comments section of this post.
  • Use the tag #PhotoRehabCoverMakeover, so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
  • Add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and the audience of the Photo Rehab.
  • If you wish, you can add to your post the badge we made for the challenge (below).
  • We will make a weekly wrap up of all the ingenious cover makeovers photos!

Every Thursday at 12:15 am CET you will find here the combined post. Immediately after that, every Thursday at 12:30 am CET, you will see the post with our version of the cover, which either Desley or I will create.

Isn’t this a cool challenge?!

This week, it’s a book – Golden Valley Silver Flowers from S Selimovic.

This is not just another book. This is a book written by our fellow blogger Becky from Restart Urgently Needed, who I have had the privilege and honor to meet on the blogosphere.

Here is Becky on her words:

I am a 28 year old PhD student in the field of neurovirology, freelance author and blogger. I’m much more besides that, but those are my professions.

I am a war survivor and former refugee and mostly I write real-life stories that happened to me or my close ones. I’ve seen a lot in my life and want to share my experience, hoping that someone out there might open his eyes and see it all in a different light.

I am a fighter for human rights, peaceful coexisting and a green planet. I’m against war – no matter where it takes place -, against trauma, post-traumatic stress disorders, pain, loss, hunger, injustice.

I dedicate all my stories to those who have suffered and lost and I donate from my author’s salaries to help people who are going through hell.

Feel free to join me and become a soldier of peace by following, liking, sharing or buying my recently published book (“Golden Valley Silver Flowers” by SB Selimovic).

Love,

B

I am sharing this with you because she is donating 100% of her book royalties to help the refugees who are arriving in Europe. I have my copy. You can have one or you may also decided to donate to any international organization like UNHCR, Work Food Program, or Red Cross, which are lacking funds to carry on their activities, given the overwhelming number of refugees, who are either in camps in the Middle East or arriving in Europe.  Think about it! And thanks for reading.

And here is our version.

    1. We’re happy you like it. We found it a great way to spread your words to the world!
      We love you too, Becky! ❤
      PS: Our version could have been better if Desley had done it, as she's the master of the two of us. I need to learn more post processing to do a better one. It was too dark, and needed some colors in it.

  1. Oh Lucile, I love this cover you’ve done for Becky. The textures are amazing, it’s absolutely beautiful.
    And I LOVE that you’re choosing blogger’s books. It’s an awesome idea. I’m sorry to everyone for being away so much. X
