    I was practicing night shooting with a bean bag for stabilization. See what you can do with it

    Contest will close 10PM Friday Eastern Time US.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.

    The link for the raw file isn't working at all for me, and the jpeg link seems to give the image from the last challenge. I've tried it in Safari and Firefox and both do the same. Any ideas?

    Went black and white and cloned out some highlights, plus other tweaks in LR & PS CC.

    Time to name a winner. The winner is Sesser, with a close runner up being Bigboysdad. I liked the tonality sesser came up with for the image, good job. In third place is EdH. Thanks for your efforts everyone.
