Again apologies for only having DNG File not ORF.

RAW (DNG File) : https://db.tt/K7eFlLuf

The Rules:

The Challenger will provide any photo that he/she deems worthy of challenging other members to "improve" by way Post Processing. It must be their own photo, and taken with m4/3 equipment. "Improve" is a subjective term, and includes many creative ideas as well as traditional "fixing". The Challenger agrees that entrants may make any changes they deem fit to post in their entry.

The winner of the previous challenge gets to post the next Challenge and serves as the judge for his/her PP challenge.
For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own PP challenge. Instead, he/she should post a photo to start out the challenge.

***** If the winner fails to post a new challenge within five days, the responsibility passes to the runner-up. *****
At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a winner, a first runner-up, and a second runner-up.

Entrants:

The Challenger's image is posted for the sole purpose of the PP Challenge; it is not posted to invite Critique or Criticism.
Entries shall be limited to 2 per member for each Challenge.

Entrants to post a BBCode link to the Large size image of their PP edit(s), preferably 1024px x npx, or npx x 1024px, if the original image and/or the PP edit allow for these sizes. Also a click-through to the original sized hosted edit if appropriate (but not a requirement for entry). If you post your entry to a photo-hosting site such as Flickr, Photobucket, or a Gallery, etc., please credit the original photographer to make it clear it is not your photograph; something like "Photo taken by xxxxxx over at Mu-43.com" should suffice.

Entrants are strongly encouraged to post the settings and techniques used for their entry, however this is not a requirement for entry.

As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners, but the judges decision is final without adverse comment from the Entrants; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

To make sure we don't break any Mu-43 rules/regulations, by participating in the PP Challenge you are allowing the judge to re-post your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners in the thread.



Contest will end 02 Oct 14 at approximately Midday AEST (Australia) more likely in the evening when i get home.

This is my first shot at PP challenge

First cropped the image to bring out the boat and the shore. Increased exposure and decreased whiles and shaddows. Light adjustment of color at the top to appear like it is sunrise. Increased grain abit to have more rustic look

Both edited in LR for 16x7 crop and expand the colors as far as possible. Edited in Nik Silver Effects Pro. First shot with mild sepia and a border that is intended to add a vintage look to the photo and the image. The second edit was then edited in Color effects to add some graduated fog and some control points to adjust the opacity of the fog near the lower centre and centre of the shot.

Ok - 123 is now final

and without further ado the winner is ........ SOKAR with mild sepia image and border.
You can't tell from my own images but i'm a fan of old photos and this really captured the old time look and feel, the crop felt right with the white of the boat drawing the eye from the dark right side to work towards the vanishing left where the sky meets the water.
Nice work Sokar.

2nd to Dbuckle for the second photo as it reminded me of rainy days spent on the coast

3rd to bigboysdad this one reminded my of bushfire and smoke over the bay.

Special mention to Conrad for getting nearly as I remember the the actual sight, it was early in the evening blue hour and the photo is taken looking east towards the ocean and the horizon was red/pink/purple shaded.

Thanks Phil for the favorable decision and kind words. I will post a new challenge in the near future and hope many will try their hand at making something of the image.
