    Okay here we go. Thanks again to Lyle for this opportunity. It is an honor to host PPC #86. This is the Buffalo New York Botanical Garden. Fine plants and flowers inside there if you want to fulfill your Macro cravings. Taken with the EM5 and the Canon FL Macro 50 of unknown settings.

    Again, anything goes. Have fun with this. The challenge will start 9 AM New York City time today March 26, 2014 Wednesday and will end at around 12 noon same time zone March 29, 2014 Saturday.

    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

    Good Luck to Everyone. Happy PPing!!!

    It's funny the way my eyes skip over things, even when I spend many minutes looking at details. I somehow failed to notice that a tree had broken through the dome until I saw that Mateusz had "repaired" the roof. :smile: I guess those details I was concentrating on were elsewhere.

    Interesting photo. I too didn't notice the tree till I saw the comment.

    I went black and white for the contrast and was interested to see that the spike on the main dome aligned vertically with the leading edge of the rectangular extension of the building entrance below so I went for a square crop which aligned that vertical with the centre of the frame. I know we're told not to centre things but there's the chimney at the top breaking symmetry to the left, and the building extension breaking symmetry to the right at the bottom. I thought the centre alignment worked.

    Your second image did not come thru Kiko. Please resubmit it. Also, may I suggest using a larger view. Feel free to also resubmit (or you may also not resubmit your first image) your first image using a larger view. My eyes are not as it once was. I'm getting old :smile:.

    Oh, by the way, welcome back Zeus1. I know you entered in the last PPC but you have been gone for awhile.

    My thanks for your entry.

  17. Too much work, not enough time to play.To be honest, some of the entries were not for me (e.g. the infrared competition).
