    PPC #83 will officially start at 9PM this evening Wednesday March 12th (NZ time / +13GMT). Please feel free to post your entries at any time before then as well.
    The Challenge will conclude Saturday, March 15th at 9PM (NZ time / +13GMT).

    I like this shot because there is good light and very interesing interior decor.

    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

    I used pixlr.com to edit the jpegs - kept it pretty simple.

    Both are straigtened and given the auto-enhance treatment.First has a vintage filter and scraggly border added and the second is given a tight crop on the table, warmish tone and simple border to give it an impression of dusk.

    #1 Gold goes for Franklim! Yes this B&W convertion touched me. Crop and some grain on it gave it character. Lightning on paper is amazing. Its Superb.
