This is a photo of the harbor and Casino ballroom at Avalon, Catalina Island California. It was taken a year ago on a 4 day cruise just before that was all shut down.

The Challenge closes at midnight on Thursday 11th of March.
60-Hour Post-Processing Challenge Rules
The Challenge Master provides an image or images to be "improved" upon by way of post-processing, as well as a closing date for entries.

  1. Entrants are to post their entries, visible in this thread, at a resolution of 1000 to 1600 pixels in the longest dimension, prior to the closing date.
  2. Each entrant is allowed two entries in the Challenge.
  3. At the close of the Challenge, the Challenge Master will select a Winner and Runners-up.
  4. The Winner of the challenge is honoured as the Master of the next Challenge
Notes:
  • Any/all source images used for the challenge must be the Challenge Master's own images. They are posted solely for the purpose of this Challenge; not to invite critique or criticism nor for other uses. If Entrants post their entries at a photo sharing site, they should credit the owner of the original image.
  • "Improve" is a subjective term, and may include many creative ideas, as well as traditional "fixing". The Challenge Master agrees that Entrants may make any changes they deem fit in their entries.
  • Entrants are strongly encouraged to share 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 Challenge Master is encouraged (but not required) to state the criteria used to decide upon a Winner. While we may not all agree with the result, the Challenge Master's decision is final. Please refrain from posting adverse comment.
  • If the Winner is unable to post a new Challenge within five days, the honor passes to the next Runner-up.

Nice shot! Hope it was a nice cruise.

I don't have any ideas in me tonight so just very basic processing in DT3.4 from me for #1. Did brighten the sky.

Whatever happened in camera didn't leave much left for me to do :)

Made adjustments to colour, highlight, shadow, crop, sharpening. Darkened sky a little. Straightened a few lines and vignetted a bit.

Didn't push the tone curve so hard to make everything as bright in the shade this time.

Still getting the hang of Affinity Photo for iPad. Used the lightening brush I just bought for $7. Also haze removal and curves adjustment.
