This contest has finished!
In one of our earlier contests, your goal was to make a subject appear from behind a bush. In this contest, we're taking this idea one step further. Your goal is to create the illusion of a third dimension in your photo by making items pop out of a frame. This effect is often referred to as the 'out of bounds' effect. It's easy to learn, but demands creativity to create an original piece that hasn't been done 1000 times before!
The 2D 'frame' can be anything you like. Literally a photo frame, a mobile phone, or even a hole in the wall. The items popping out can be one or many.
We had a similar contest on Pxleyes 6 years ago, called Out of bounds 2. Make sure to check it out to get inspiration.
It was won by WYSIWYG, with the following entry:
