    Good Luck

    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

    Nice horse :)

    Kept it pretty straight, two different crops and processing. One b&w (and Ilford 125 with more grain) and the other a vintage colour film effect.

    Thanx U3 (before U2) for playing along and keep #105 alive. There's still time for others to join. Don't be shy.
    Looks like I choose boring subject, but here is what I saw in it:

    Few more hours before closing time, so feel free to join in.
     
  9. I won't be taking part in this and the following contests: tomorrow is deliberation day in my girl's school and afterwards we are leaving for a 2 week holiday in rural France. Internet access will be impossible or near-impossible as we ar staying in a small village without shops, without pubs, with a church without priest, only sheep and pigs. Let's call it "back to the roots".
    At the moment we ar busy packing and loading the car with essentials to survive two weeks of doing nothing.
    See You back second half of July!

    I was waiting for the traffic cones to show up on the horse's ears, but nobody went there. Sigh.

    Thanks Previz, I'm honoured ! I'll get something up tomorrow.

    I have to admit, I was a fan of Ex Machina's second one - channelling some serious Van Gogh :)
