Usual bla-bla (read at Your own risk, beware of boredom):

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


Contest will end Friday May 16th at 12AM GMT

The picture represents Valletta and Grand Harbour on the isle of Malta, taken the beginning of April at sundown. Feel free to play with this scene and re-invent it.

Here is my effort. Lightroom and Photoshop. I liked the lines and tried to accentuate them. Thanks for the image to mess around with.

heres my attempt using LR, only used it a couple of times so far but find it a lot more intuitive and faster than PSP X5 which I had been using previously !

...squeakin in. Camera RAW, presharpen and color temps to get pic close to what I wanted. Recolored the sky with Paint brush and sampling various colors, High pass/vivid light selective sharpen, Dodge tool, burn tool, sponge tool. Never really messed with them all that much, but I learned a better way to use them and they are quite handy now. Maybe not as easy as other D&B methods but quick and easy for sure.

Time to close this competition. Perhaps not the easiest picture to process...

This is my interpretation of it:

View attachment 361752

Now, for my very subjective results:
- third place goes to ger.mcg
- second is phigmov with his B/W redering
- First place is for franklim with his second entry which is very similar to my picture.

TXS everybody and on to the next one!
