    I would like to propose we start PP challenge. Would anyone be interested? A raw file could be made available for DL and those interested need only to DL it and then PP and share the image. I personally very much enjoy processing my photos as much as shooting them and cant help but think it would be beneficial to everyone participating. The winner could share their technique and choose whether or not to upload the next photo and theme for the next PP challenge.

    Anyone hungry?

    Very cool idea.

    I am very new to the PP game and would welcome this as a learning experience.

    Thanks for the input!

    Is there a preference for a file sharing method to DL the raw file? Can it be done via the forum? I will do a quick search.

    Great idea. I am the worst when it comes to any PP or editing of my own stuff. It's hard for me to separate from the emotions I had making the image. So I tend to fall in love with a shot and sometimes fail to see that it really isn't that good an image after all.

    Is it wise to get into a PPing contest?

    Okay all.

    Anyone who is interested here is a link to a RW2 file shot with a Panasonic GX-1. If you don't have a gmail acct I think you will need to create one. I understand you can follow the link and request that I give you access or, you can give me your login name/gmail and I can pre-approve you.

    This is my first time using google drive so if anyone has any experience please chime in.

    You are free to do with this image as you please. Just curious to see some different takes on it. Who's in?

    It would be better to change the Sharing Settings | Visibility Options on the file to either :-

    1. Public on the Web or
    2. Anyone with the Link

    Then you don't have to request/grant permission every time.

    Similar to anyone who has a DropBox account, if they put it in the Public Folder, anyone can download it.

    I've put in a Request, for now ......:biggrin::biggrin:

    HTH.

    That would be a plus, I'm interested but didn't feel like requesting access etc. the other night so if we can get it shared public I'll definitely jump in :smile:
