----------

Post-Processing Challenge Rules
  1. The Challenge Master provides an image or images to be "improved" upon by way of post-processing, as well as a closing date for entries.
  2. Entrants are to post their entries, visible in this thread, at a resolution of 1000 to 1600 pixels in the longest dimension, prior to the closing date.
  3. Each entrant is allowed two entries in the Challenge.
  4. At the close of the Challenge, the Challenge Master will select a Winner and Runners-up.
  5. The Winner of the challenge is honored as the Master of the next Challenge.

Notes:
  • Images provided by Challenge Masters must be their own. They are posted solely for the purpose of this Challenge; not to invite critique or criticism nor for other uses. If Entrants post their entries at a photo sharing site, they should credit the owner of the original image.
  • "Improve" is a subjective term, and may include many creative ideas, as well as traditional "fixing". The Challenge Master agrees that Entrants may make any changes they deem fit in their entries.
  • Entrants are strongly encouraged to share the tools and techniques used for their entries, however this is not a requirement for entry.
  • Compositing is allowed provided the use of the donor image does not violate any licensing or copyright restrictions.
  • As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. The Challenge Master is encouraged (but not required) to state the criteria used to decide upon a Winner. While we may not all agree with the result, the Challenge Master's decision is final. Please refrain from posting adverse comment.
  • If the Winner is unable to post a new Challenge within five days, the honor passes to the next Runner-up.

#2:
So many lines and textures!
Photoshop, mainly Filters/Stylize/Find Edges

Replacement entry #2:
I found I liked that middle-European yellow brick too much to lose the effect, so, split toning in the Color Grading Panel of Adobe Camera Raw. Also some work to differentiate the sky but keep it less than paper white

Basic exposure, contrast, and color tweaks in DT3.4. Less processing on the stone on the left as it's already drawing the eye a bit too much.

first attempt. Opened in ACR and then cropped, Topaz AI and sharpening. Darkened the sky and dodged the shadows.

Edit: I preferred the color of my 2nd entry to my 1st, so I decided to replace the color entry #1 with a B&W one. I used Nik Silver Efex with a mild blue-green filter on entry #2 to get this. Apologies to the kind members who "liked" the original color version.

Entry #2. Nice shot that needed very little work. Opened raw file in DxO PL2: slight adjustment of geometry, light levels, one notch of ClearView, minimum lens sharpness, default chromatic aberration correction, saved as tiff. Then opened tiff file and tweaked in and cropped a bit Elements.
Finally I used Nik Color Efex to warm up the image (some of the shadows indicate a low sun, plus it simply looked better to me)..
