    This was taken with a Fuji X30. See what you can do with it.

    This Challenge will be closed Thursday, April 21st. I'll announce winners by Friday.


    The Rules:

    The Judge will provide a photo, challenging Entrants to "improve" it by way of post-processing. It must be the Judge's own photo. "Improve" is a subjective term, and includes many creative ideas as well as traditional "fixing". The Judge agrees that Entrants may make any changes they deem fit to post in their entries.

    At the end of the challenge, the Judge will name a Winner, a First Runner-up, and a Second Runner-up. For obvious reasons, the Judge may not enter the challenge.

    The Winner of the challenge shall serve as the Judge of the next challenge. If the Winner fails to post a new challenge within five days, the responsibility passes to successive Runners-up.


    The Judge's image is posted for the sole purpose of this challenge; it is not posted to invite critique or criticism.

    Entries shall be limited to 2 per Entrant.

    Entrants are to post their images, visible in this thread with 1000 to 1600 pixels in the longest dimension. 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" should suffice.

    Entrants are strongly encouraged to post the tools and techniques used for their entries, however this is not a requirement for entry.

    As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. The Judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria were used to decide on a winner. We may not all agree with the chosen winners, but the Judge's decision is final. Please refrain from posting adverse comment.

    By participating in this challenge, Entrants allow the Judge to re-post their images in this thread for the sole purpose of announcing the winners.

    If anyone couldn't get the RAF to open in LRCC, like me, it might help them to know that PSCC worked fine so now I've got a TIFF to play with in LRCC tomorrow.

    These are what I came up with after editing the TIFF in PSCC to remove the litter bin and various attempts at colour and lighting adjustments in LRCC because I couldn't decide which areas I wanted as the main point(s) of interest and how much drama. In the end I hedged my bets!

    For anyone having trouble with the raw file I have posted a link to a tif converted from the raw with the other 2 links.

    Here are the results:
    First place goes to Scotsman, for an interesting and unusual rendition.
    Second to Tenpenny for a warmer treatment of the initial image.
    Third to dlpruk for the black and white treatment.

    Nice work folks.

    Wow! Thank you for choosing my processing as the winner, vorlon1 and for today's post, John. I've had a lot going on recently and somehow didn't catch the results. My apologies. I will get something up for the next challenge soon.
