#397 Process to the Max
Posted By: slowpez, 08-24-2017, 06:31 AM

Looks like I have the baton this week as geodude is unable to host this weeks challenge. So here goes.

I belong to a group on Flickr called Slider Sundays. The object is to take a photo and process it to the max. It is a lot of fun and has taught me a lot about post processing and how to use those programs to enhance a photo or push it beyond all reason. So, for this weeks challenge, I would like two shots from each of you: the before and after images. Make it fun and process it to the max.

This challenge will end on Friday Sept. 1 at midnight my time.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

That's some PP when you can move the street light to the opposite side of the image!
I can't find a slide in Lightroom to do that.
Are you on LR6? I'm only on 5.

It's right there, labelled "lamp post", just below the "nightscape" slider, don't you see?

Most folk tend to read right to left, hence the staircase must be available to walk right up.

There's yer problem mate... you need to get the CC versions, it just keeps you up to date with all the latest improvements.

I flipped the original and used several hundred Pentax photos to make this mosaic with AndreaMosaic.

Backgrounds are underappreciated. That mask in the picture on the right looks as natural in negative as positive. Wonderful choice of subject.
