    Hello everyone,

    thanks to all those who contributed to our first Lightzone contest, making it such a success... I really enjoyed seeing how many excellent renditions of such a simple scene could be made.

    Congratulations to alessandro, who received the most votes for this rendition :


    I will contact Light Crafts, to organise a full and free license for Lightzone to alessandro.

    I hope you will join us in our Lightzone contest for March.

    Kind Regards

    I have to add that the initial subject matter was , uhhh shall I say, not very inspiring.
    I am delighted in the versions everyone made. Some very good eyes/minds around here.

    Maybe Alessandro won the contest but your all winners in my book....

    Agreed! March subject is more inspiring, but nonetheless prone to tricky developments (not my usual genre). After the initial SW-trickery enthusiasm, perhaps we'll have a more "normal" approach in the future; keep in mind that choosing among very subtle differences can be difficult, so the first implulse, being a contest, is to surprise...
    Now, the point is that lightzone hides very sophisticated treatment tools under an easy interface, which I'm happy to have started discovering (cause I'm just curious). This is the good face of promotion.
    What? Bezier curves, but where are the handles? Back to work... :wink:

    Thanks Don, alessandro, believe it or not, the source images for these contests are chosen very carefully :biggrin:

    The February image was chosen to encourage the exploration of crop and rotate as well as creative colour, B&W effects and levels adjustment.

    We had a wide range of tools demonstrated there - I certainly learned some new tricks!
