    Hello everyone,

    voting is now open for our 3rd Lightzone Contest, and before we launch our 4th Contest, I wonder if you would like to help us by posting an image here, which you would be willing for us to use.

    I'm hoping we will get a good response, and people will vote on the ones they'd like to see used for the next contest by clicking on the [​IMG] to the bottom right of the post.

    If I choose your image for the contest, we'll require the original raw file ideally (or full size jpeg if you don't have the raw file) - you will retain all rights to your image of course.

    Let's give it a few days, and see what we get :2thumbs:

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    Just to clarify, by "difficult PP", Brian means difficult postprocessing :biggrin:.

    Yes, thanks Amin...

    maybe it's a shot where the white balance seems impossible to get right (multiple light sources, or a colour cast etc)

    maybe it's a shot where the subject seems to blend in with the background too much

    maybe it's a shot where you'd like to see a high quality B&W rendition

    maybe it's a shot which needs high dynamic range

    maybe it's a shot of a subject you'd like to see rendered in an old fashioned / futuristic / romantic / scary / light hearted / ??? you tell us what you want... give us a challenge and see what we can do! :biggrin:

    Hope that clarifies things... just post a snapshot here and tell us what is difficult about the image / potential you think it may have 'if only' :smile:

    Cheers

    Brian

    This photo was shooted in a little rest, as a joke, on an event. Is a young photog, friend of mine. E-30, flash on camera, 14-54 f2.8, I have the raw file.

    [​IMG]

    The idea is to create a better background using the nice bokeh in the same photo, I have a rendering example too.

    Interesting challenge Marcelo - what do you mean by 'rendering example'?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Cheers

    An example I do with the shoot using only LZ, must be corrected but it exploit the bokeh in all white wall.
