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 #154".

This is all about having fun so have at it!!!
Any edit, over-the-top creative or subtle, is encouraged!

This game will end on Monday January 19th at 2PM EST

This one turned out to be many shades of fail; the idea looked good in my head, but execution wasn't there. Maybe you can do something with it. You are welcome to go any way you want with it, but if you want a reference for color balance here is a color accurate sample as far as the cat/carpet go: http://flickr.com …hesonofdarwin/3​137016657/ (external link)

It appears that way! You win by default, Monty. Very well done on that leg and shadow!

LOL -- Well thank you Justin for picking mine!! I know it was a tough decision ;-)a

It was actually quite a bit of fun - I wish I could get my cat to sit still long enough for a decent shot!

I'll get a new one up in a few.

... I tried about a half dozen different things, but I just couldn't come up with anything :(. ... When I saw monty's, I absolutely cracked up. ... That is the funniest thing I have seen here since I joined.
