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 #425."
Image should appear 1024 pixels on the long side
Game ends Monday May 14 at 9am EST 9 (I know this is five days, but i thought i would allow people the whole weekend to take a shot at this one.)
participation seems to have dropped off in this comp. Some of the rules have changed a little since I first started watching this thread, Not very much though.
I wonder if the fact we are now adding raw files has made a difference.
So i would like to say that, even though some of us have been adding the raw file to the comp, that is not a requirement. If you win a comp. and would like to post just the jpg there is nothing wrong with that at all.
Not everyone uses raw editing software,
or maybe the photo's we have been adding are uninteresting, who knows..
