Luminosity masks on all three layers for the most part.

I actually like the B&W version more.

Edited in Lightroom CC:
Used all 3 shots, merged with HDR functionality of LR.
Contrast +, Highlights -, shadows +, clarity ++, vibrance -, saturation +, Tone curve to boost the lights, dehaze +, and a slight crop.

So, it’s crunch time :-) Firstly thank you to all who participated, I was not disappointed. Here are some brief thoughts about all the processed images.

01Ryan10 - Very pleasing with good, natural colour rendering. The green grass is green and shows some detail but perhaps it should have been a tad paler.

Benitoite - nice pastel colours but not natural. Yes the grass is green but the darkness introduces too much contrast. too much contrast

Bianchi - I do like the cloud replacement, that is very well done. I also like the wooden pier, that improves the composition. But the sea looks too blue and the almost black foreground kills it. As you used LR, why did you not merge to HDR and then add your manipulations?

Cfdesigns - sorry, but the colours look weird to me! That’s probably because you used the Photoshop HDR function. I have never come to terms with it myself.

Jethr0 - The menacing clouds are fine - and the orange sky beneath them. But below that there is too much contrast in the sea and the black foreground is not for me. I feel sure that LR Merge to HDR should be able to pull out the dark green grass in the foreground.

Mozes - I approve the crop you have made and you certainly created “mood” but Mozzer magnificence is lacking!

Navydoc - An attractive manipulation but I think you should have cropped all or most of the black foreground

Pebal - As usual, this have a very realistic look but I think a bit more brilliance would have improved it.

There are joint winners this week.

Congratulations to both of you :-)

As I know that Sebastian (Pebal) is not a photographer, I am handing the torch to 01Ryan10 to organise the next competition.

P.S. This was my interpretation. I used DxO Optics Pro (for lens correction and denoising) -> SNS-HDR -> then minor tweaks in Photoshop.

Congrats Ryan and Pebal

Stiga I liked the fact you critiqued every ones image, it gives the contestants a perspective on the judge. I learned years ago if you are going to enter a contest, know what the judge likes and dislikes and there style of shooting.

As for the comments pertaining to my entry, I live rurally with slow internet, and I had trouble uploading your files from media fire, for me it took forever on a couple different tries, so I just used your jpeg sample you posted here. So unable to merge three images.. When it comes to merging images my go to is Luminosity Masks, not using HDR programs, although I have several. Check out Jimmy McIntyre on U tube also from Scotland .. It's a learning curve for sure, but so beneficial.

Thank you. Mine looks almost identical to Stiga's. :-)

I am at work right now. I spent all of Saturday evening into Sunday morning awake and shooting various areas of Joshua Tree. In fact, I don't think I slept. lol. Anyways, when I get home, I will grab an image from that trip to post here.

I was at Joshua Tree alone doing an all night photography adventure this past weekend. Here is an image you all can edit.

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 (1 entry per week)

  • 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.
