Before and After - The Weekly Editing Challenge
...now compiled into a single, easy to locate thread, that can be added to your subscribe/follow list!
Rules are simple:
- Download the image file from the current week
- Contestants will have 7 days to edit the image and post their edited version to the thread (27FEB17)
- The owner of the original image will choose a winner
- The winner will copy & paste this post and include a new downloadable image link
The new image must be unedited / SOOC (straight our of camera), full-resolution, and in a RAW format, ie. CR2, DNG, TIF, etc
(Dropbox works well for uploading and linking these large files)
The purpose of this game is to be creative and learn new editing techniques. You must give some insight into exactly how you went about editing the image. For example, increased shadows sliders, reduced highlights, local sharpening, white balance adjustment, specific filters used, tone curve adjustments, etc. Comments and/or questions regarding the edits are encouraged.

BTW, in case you're wondering why it's so crooked, I've had the camera mounted sideways on one of those silly plastic tabletop tripods, which wanted desperately to tip over and send my camera into the icy (it was 12*F that evening) waters below, so I'm holding down one leg to keep the camera from doing a Brody, and the weight of the lens keeps making the camera droop. And in the other hand I've got my cell phone running Canon Camera Connection in lieu of a remote cable release. Fun times!
