    I believe this picture has something in it - but can you help bringing it forward? Or backwards - or anywhere you like...

    Contest will close on January 25, around 6pm GMT.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 dlpruk over at Mu-43.com" should suffice.

    Entrants are strongly encouraged to post the settings and techniques used for their entry and it may help the judge to appreciate your work if you also post a link to the full-size version on Flickr or wherever. 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.

    Trying to use contrast to pull the eye toward the left half of the image, which has some intrigue in the shadows of the overhang, the reflection in the window, and the people.

    I guess the time is up, so here it is from the Norwegian jury...

    I was really looking forward to see what you guys did with this. I found the image interesting because of the contrast between the elegant waves on the building and the not so elegant, but probably very "form follows function" ship on the right.

    Anyways:

    3rd place: AussiePhil with his second post. Loved the colors!
    2nd place: MarkRyan - I´m a sucker for a nice BW conversion
    1st place: vorlon1: Loved the crop. Got everything in, both the building,the ship and the contrast between the two.

    So - vorlon1 - you´re next.
