Post by hmca on Nov 2, 2019 12:11:46 GMT
Members submitting an image for this challenge are asked to offer a brief statement as to why they chose their image.
Participants in the challenge have the option of presenting an edit with the photographer’s reasons in mind
or instead presenting an image that reflects their own creative vision.
1. Participants in the challenge are asked to provide a screenshot of their edits within the RAW converter of their choice
along with the reasons for their edits.
2. Following their initial edits members may use whatever “tools" they wish to create an image that portrays their artistic vision for the image
as long as the character of the original image is not lost.
3. Including information on plug-ins, actions, external editors, textures, sky replacements etc that were used will only help to inform members
of some of the creative options that are available to today’s photographer.
4. Including layer stacks may be something to consider when presenting a final edit.
You have two weeks to participate in this challenge. It ends on Nov. 16th.
At the end of the challenge the image creator will select their three favorite edits.
Comments are restricted to complimenting another member's edit.
So let's get started!
The photographer had this to say about the image:
"I captured this image during a walk in a desert wash near my home in Marana, AZ. I was attracted to this composition because of the contrast of the right hand foreground (cholla cactus) compared to the colorful sky.
The cholla was really close so the slight OOF seemed to accentuate the fuzzy look."
Here is a screenshot of the image we will be working on.
