Mu-43 Post Processing Challenge #88 (72 hours)

Discussion in 'Contests and Challenges' started by ex machina, Apr 4, 2014.

  1. Thanks again to franklin for the honor and opportunity to host the next challenge. I'm learning an awful lot from these challenges and from the example of all of you.

    Camera: Lumix GX7, capture is old fire engine controls at a truck graveyard in desperate need of PP love. While I'm happy with my edits I'm super-excited to see what other creative approaches entrants will take; photo posted here is untouched -- go crazy!


    The challenge will start 9 AM EST April, 2014 Friday and will end at around 9AM April 7, 2014 Monday.



    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.


    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" 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. ENJOY POST PROCESSING!!!

    Valves, widgets, dials, knobs, meters - whats not to like :)

    Tried different crops and styles similar to some of the others posted here. First is a analog film filter and the second is a light HDR.

    Some rust patterns which had a mandelbrot fractal vibe which would have been nice to play on, beyond my skills though.
