Winner: PP Challenge #30

Some excellent entries for this challenge which is why it's taken so long for me to judge.

Nicely controlled conversion which might have benefitted with possibly a bit more oomph in the foreground.

Brought out the sky well and made the most of the slightly bland foreground with some attractive contrast in the concrete.
You managed to conceal the slightly distracting red brick as well.

Not usually a fan of edge effects but this one fits perfectly, and you did a great job correcting the barrel distortion.

Definitely not too OTT for me.
A good job with processing similar to what I was trying for.

A good colourful rendition and you have brought some life to the sea and sky. The Severn Estuary has never looked so good, it's more usually a muddy brown.

Well done for spotting the picture within the picture.
A bit tight on the crop at the bottom for my taste.

Again, you've managed what I tried and failed to achieve, nicely balanced and a natural look.

The oil painting effect works well, I like the texture and nicely balanced composition.

A little dark on my monitor but it has created slightly sinster effect.

A Highly Commended to Ash & TOUGEFC, bith very good amd completely different takes on the image.

But the Winner goes to mithrandir with an excellent vintage lookin approach.

Congratulations, looking forward to the next challenge.
