The game will last 4 Days 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 #412."
Game ends Monday, March 5, at 9:30 PM Eastern Standard Time. I have to read up on the appropriate GMT+ or -.... i will just simply edit these last 2 sentences. :)

Good job, Michaels!

I figured that i would give you a challenge with this crappy pic. :)

Michael1984: it was definately amusing to see all of the bernies getting progressively larger/smaller. Decent masking job on the quick edit. Out of curiousity, how come the constraints were not locked while transforming?

Michael Lee: nice fix on my poorly exposed bernie. You really brought back a lot of my lost colors. I am curious what would have been done if it would have opened in cs5.

Nice work!

Take it away michael1984, you win.

Missed the Deadline for this, but wanted to put one in.
Used LR4 Beta, so not really sure how I got it to this point...

thank you! I wasn't sure what to do with this so came up with that. I am kinda new to editing so not sure what you mean by locking the constraints? did I mess something up?

Locking constraints on the transform tool keeps the proportions the same. It would have prevented the smallest bernie (to the left) from looking thinner than the third fatter looking bernie.

Nothing was messed up. Congratulations on the win!

T3heavyshop: that is very similar to my final edit (also cropped and b&w) nice work, too.
