The challenge starts now and will end at around 12AM June 15, 2014 Monday, with judging by Monday afternoon EST.

RAW: http://www.mediafire.com/download/l9hjj53z978ixaa/P1030528.RW2

JPEG: http://www.mediafire.com/view/d78qddaxtdlh1fd/P1030528.jpg

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. ENJOY POST PROCESSING!!!

Was the photo taken in the former Yugoslavia? I saw many buildings of similar construction which were also artillery damaged.

No, the competition shot was from inside an old brewery building that had been partially deconstructed in a small Pennsylvania town, presumably to scrap the metal of the tanks. Here's what it looks like from the outside:

Brewery Cutaway by lewisfrancis, on Flickr

I haven't been able to find out how long it's been standing this way, but suspect it's been a very long time, possibly as far back as the mid '60's when the brewery closed down. Sad, but perhaps not as sad as the buildings you've seen suffering artillery damage.

Thanks folks, I really enjoy seeing my photos through other photographer's eyes and feel I learn a lot with every competition. Cheers to all who submitted and can't wait to see what comes next!

Third Place: Zeus1's second entry's crop brings attention to the lines of railing and stairs, and makes the blackboard where the brewery employees tracked their schedules a bit more recognizable.

Second Place: m4c's entry provides for a mysterious atmosphere but brings out a lot of detail in the formerly shadowy sections of the shot.

First Place: torsteinh's post-apocalytpic glamor shot of our bovine successors!
I actually hoped that someone would go this route and so was happy to see it in execution -- congrats torsteinh!
