    Since I won, I decided to actually go out and take a photo rather than digging something up from the past. I tried to catch the sunset, but I just get home too late (damn you non-daylight savings time!). I shot it on my GH4, 12-35mm with a Haida variable ND filter. The clouds were moving pretty fast, so I wanted to try to capture the movement of them. Compositionally it's rubbish, but I think there are a lot of interesting objects within the frame, so I'll be interested to see what people come up with. Anyways, below are the links for the JPEG or RAW file, so feel free to have at it!

    Contest will officially close Friday, Nov 13th at 11:59 PM EST.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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. "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 Lurch 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.

    Ian, this is a good photo for this type challenge. Because of the number of "interesting objects within the frame", it presents lots of options and should result in some quite varied entries. Here's my first attempt:

    Less than a day to go people, get your submissions in!

    I'll review the submissions tomorrow morning, and announce the top 3. Given that it's a weekend, hopefully the winner will get out and take a shot for us to play with in #212 ;)

    Thank you to all of you who participated, I hope you enjoyed it! After looking through the submissions, the top three are:

    3. Sesser's second image
    2. previz's image
    1. @barry13@barry13 image

    I like the "feel" of barry's image, it captured the "cold, dark" feel and atmosphere that was present when I took the image. So, I pass the torch off to @barry13@barry13 to supply us with our next image. Looking forward to see what you come up with!
