Some of you enjoy shooting and loathe the processing. This challenge is for the rest of you. I love digging into the software and tearing it up. Sliders to 11.......whoah.....that's a bit too much. There we go....much better. Anyways, I have a raw file for you to play with (and sorry it's in PEF format because I haven't set my camera to DNG.....my bad.....but most of you file meddlers should find a way to open it....if not, let me know and I can send you a TIFF of it or something). The composition is nothing special and it looks quite dark, but that's partly intent. Feel free to do anything at all to it. Crops for re-composition are recommended. I'm also fine with complete manipulation if that's something you enjoy. I think there's potential for a mono treatment or go with nature's colors (or some wild variant). There's plenty of work to be done pulling stuff out of the shadows (or just blocking them if you prefer). We'll give everyone until the end of the weekend to play with it and upload their finished version here. I'll announce my fave on Monday and the winner can then re-start with a RAW of their own. Now PIMP this....... http://dropcanvas.com/r5nlw (you should just be able to click this link and download the file IMGP4756.PEF) And the link and file disappear in 3 days so don't delay. If you can't open the PEF file, I have added a TIFF and a JPG here....... http://dropcanvas.com/bev4p ALSO, so this might be a little educational (rather than just a bunch of people playing with sliders), please let us know what you did, any software and if possible WHY you did what you did. Insight behind how the mind works is more helpful than just looking at the finished product.
