This game is to help those of us who are trying to learn new editing tricks.

Here's the breakdown of the game. I have posted a picture, re-sized to exactly 1024 pixels maximum on the long side. Otherwise, this photo was taken from the camera as is and unedited by myself.

The game will last 4 Days (96 hrs) 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 #379."

Ends on Sat aug 6 at 8 pm mountain standard time.

I'll take a quick crack at it...

PHOTOBUCKET EMBEDDING IS DISABLED BY THIS MEMBER.
Photobucket sends ads instead of embedding photos from their free galleries.

I basically took it into Aperture... tweaked the settings to get the foreground how I liked it... then did the same for the sky. I exported those seperately and in photoshop, brought them both in and masked off just the sky in the one so it would show over the foreground of the other. I also used the burn & dodge tools to try and remove the hard shadow line on the closest yellow canoe.

this was my take on it..
I straightened, then cropped to 8X10. used smart brushes on the trees, and another on the skies. then auto sharpened and saved for web. I am using PSE9
I just could not figure out how to deal with the hard shadow line on the yellow canoe so I just cropped it out
