Hi All, I feel bad that last year Post Processing challenge died with me. I didn't had time to create the voting and tallying system. This time should be much easier as I just need to pick the winner =) I think I took this last year with the GF1 and 12mm @f4. I found this guy interesting so I speed walk in front of him and just angled the camera backwards and shot this. My main problem with this photograph is the distracting people and legs behind him. I still want the street feel but the focus to be the guy smoking. I made it work in the end without cropping that guy out so let see how this challenge goes. The link to the dng is here (right click and save link as): https://dl.dropbox.com/u/13304145/Challenge7/120404_street_177.DNG The link to the jpg is here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/13304145/Challenge7/120404_street_177.JPG Winner shall be announced on or shortly after the 23 Jan by 8 PM GMT. Mu-43 Post Processing Challenge 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. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next challenger/judge, the responsibility is passed on 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) 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.
