Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Congradulations to FFFCFF for winning this weeks challenge (2nd pic) and to runner-up Benitoite. Also liked the poem that Chet posted with his entry.

Great edits everyone. It was a hard pick this week.

I could only find a small Harley Davidson motorcycle rider. I wanted a burly ZZ Top looking guy of a larger scale to the horse. I was going to put a quarter machine next to it like a kiddie ride. My vision looked so much more entertaining... in my head. But during my lunch hour when I mainly work on these, I just couldn't find many images larger then 400 pixels. Alas you got a poem.

Congrats FFFCFF on this weeks win.

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 and runner-up
  • 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. Here is the link: https://drive.google.c​om ...EMG1mZnc/view?usp=s​haring (external link)

And the SOOC

Congrats FFFCF.. this 5DIV image is wonderful to work on

Looks to be a lovely village in a valley somewhere in Poland... What would be the name of the village ?
Also seems to be smoke rising from a barbecue

LR adjustments then to PS for some cloning, and then back to LR for additional adjustment

Adjust black/white points in ACR and increase dehaze filter. Reduce highlights, Adjust W/B and open in PS CC 2018. Clone out dead tree on the right and removed the branch, upper right. Increase contrast in an area of the trees that looked a bit smokey near the center, right. Add Topaz Simplify to lower specular highlights and bump up saturation. Played with curves to lower contrast and crop to 16:9. Reduce to 1280px on the long side and save.

Adjusted in acr, then in photoshop used hdr toning. Snapshot result, went back in history to just before using the hdr toning and added new layer. Used snapshot to bring back the hdr toning effect. Blended both layers.
