This 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 72hrs 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 & After #193".

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

This round will end Thursday June 11th 7:00 pm PST USA.

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2. Place the duck on a clean chopping board and remove any excess fat from the neck and body cavities.
3. Rinse the duck thoroughly, inside and out, under a cold running tap and pat dry with a paper towel.
4. Pierce the skin of the duck all over with a cocktail stick or a thin bladed knife, at 1 inch intervals.
5. Rub salt and pepper into the skin of the duck, inside as well as outside.
6. Position the duck on a rack placed in a roasting tray, breast side up.
7. Pour a few cups of boiling water over the duck and into the roasting tray and place into the preheated oven.
8. Roast the duck for up to 3 hours or until no fat remains and the skin is crispy and brown, turning the duck over after every 30 minutes. Basting the duck with the juices may help to release more fat whilst cooking, although this is not necessary.
9. Once the duck is cooked, remove it from the oven and transfer it onto a carving board. Let it rest for 15 minutes before carving and serving.
