PhotoRehab Cover Makeover #10

Every Thursday a new Photo Rehab Cover Makeover is launched with a wrap up of the previous week’s contributions.  It’s a fun challenge from my blogging friends Lucile and Desleyjane,  and as I missed doing the makeover last week,  I was determined to do this week’s.  It’s so interesting seeing how creative everyone can be with these challenges!

The book for this week’s makeover is the book The Lord of the Rings. Once again, I haven’t read this book but I have seen the movies and I enjoyed them.

My cover uses a photo I took a few years ago while walking in the mountains of Nepal.  You can just see the tip of a mountain peeping through the clouds if you look closely. I love the deep gorges and considered the original colouring but went with black and white instead. I thought it suited the Lord of the Rings theme.

I used a different editing program for this one for the first time, (Canva), and it wasn’t too difficult to use.

If I’m honest, I have at times felt a bit out of my depth, as some of the talent and skills displayed are way out of my range of experience.  But I will continue to participate and aim to learn from others along the way.


In this weekly challenge we are given the name of a book, movie or album every Thursday and shown the original cover.  We are then invited to share our take by making a new cover, using either an archive photo or shooting a new one to go with the theme. It’s great to see what all the talented people out there come up with!

    Great job, it certainly does suit the Lord of the Rings with the mountains 🙂

      Thanks Barbara, your comment made me smile! I liked the mountain theme for that very reason. 🙂

    Out of your depth? Dearest Debbie, don’t even dare to say this again. If we would think like that, none of us would be blogging anymore!
    We all have talents in similar or different areas. Daring to try new things has given us the possibility to learn new skills and add those to the lists of our talents.
    You’re there as good and as talented as all other participants, and don’t forget that some of them do it for a living! Way to go! Keep doing!
    And I cannot forget to say that I loved yours! I am a B&W lover!

      Thank you my friend! I appreciate your confidence in my ability and I do enjoy being creative with these challenges. I love seeing how others do these and really do learn from reading through the posts. Thanks to you and Desley for all your efforts, it is greatly appreciated.

        Nothing to thank me for. That’s what friends are for.
        I’m grateful for your participation and enjoy appreciating your creativity.

    Way to go Deb. Love the mountain and the contrasts in black and white are fab. Great cover. And I agree completely with Lucile, we are all learning from each other. That’s why I love it here so much. X

    This is a great cover; the image really captures the mood and mystery of Tolkein. 🙂

      Thanks Su, I thought that it fitted in quite well. I wasn’t sure what to use when I went looking for photos in my archives but this one jumped out so to speak. I think the monochrome look makes it work. Appreciate your comment as always 😊

        I totally agree about the monochrome. I was thinking about the challenge (and I do live in movie “Middle Earth” — although I hate the term, and am no lover of LOTR), but all the shots I have of the mountains (or as we like to think of them, sets), are bathed in sunshine and fiddling with b&w filters just hasn’t given me anything worthwhile yet. But I think you nailed it with that shot. 🙂

          I’m smiling now after reading your comment. Thanks so much! I really want to visit the area where it was filmed but don’t know when! I looked at leaving the blue sky and fluffy clouds in but am glad I didn’t now. 😊

    I love this take on the cover and it’s similar to what I had in mind. But mine came out very different in the end!
