his game is to help those of us who are trying to learn new tricks when it comes to editing.

Here's the breakdown of the game. I will post a picture that I choose, resized to exactly 1024 pixels maximum on the long side. Outside of being resized it has to be unedited...meaning no adjustments to any levels, it has to look like it did as it came out of the camera.

The game will last 48hrs and whoever can produce the best edited image (as judged by me) will be picked and it'll be their turn to post their unedited picture for all of us to take a crack at.

The participants must have their "Image Editing OK" turned on and they must provide at least a simple breakdown of how they edited the image, some entrants are a little vague on this point, please give us all details so we can learn and share tips. For instance if you use the unsharp mask tool or Smart Sharpen, provide us with the adjustments you used so others can try them out.

You can post multiple images, but the first image you post will be the one that is judged - all other images will be considered for knowledge and tip use only.

Also, please keep all comments, be they positive or negative, to yourself until after the game has ended.

If you happen to be the winner of the game please start the next one with the title of the game and the following number. For example…the next game should read "Before and After #107".

This is all about having fun so have at it!!!

This game will end on Sunday, Sept. 14th at 5:00pm (EST)

Another from New Orleans would have been better without the fence, but lets see what y'all can do with it.

Great edits all around. TheSonofDarwin having a dark and interesting picture, turn out very cool. Squip I like the use of the textures. I'll have to give it to Lore nice simple edit and good contrast in the photo as well. Good job with the cloning of the fence. My only thing is the cloning out of the pallet on the right side of the pole is that it didn't retain the texture of the concrete. Nevertheless, congratulations Lore.
