72-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 honour passes to the next Runner-up.

My take in DT3.4

Those black spots in the sky, are those midges?
I didn't bother to remove them all :p

I like to make those kind of comments so come back is fair!

First, the black spots, midges or mousquitos, probably some birds hunting them also. Got my first mousquito bite for 2019 there.
Second, end time of challenge, correction made, I decided to make it a 72 hour challenge as I would be at work after 60 hours.
Thirdly, Yes of course B&W will get preference! NOT! If it fits the picture I am happy to see B&W entries but don't force yourselves!

My judging will be totally fair and unbiased! :biggrin:
That means that I will decide, as I am totally fair and unbiased in my opinion! :whistling:

Both my entries are based on an experimental attempt to create a slow shutter look.

Guys, be sure to post black-and-white edits if you want to have a chance of winning! 😜
Yes I'm being careful and will enter a B&W entry for the first time!

Well, I've basically never edited B&W so now's as good a time as any to try. Using color calibration module in DT3.4 to convert to monochrome and used a very contrasty tone curve via filmic rgb module. Don't even know if that makes sense, and it's funny using modules named after color adjustments for this travesty attempt.:dance2:
