PP Challenge #35

Folks, I am really sorry... I got a whole bunch of PMs on stuff I was selling and missed audiobomber's messsage that I had won #34.

So let's do a quickie to be completed Sunday November 14th. I'll judge it quickly...

Here is a shot I took this week. I've been shooting a lot of architecture. This has all kinds of things going on. Crop is probably funky, it may need some perspective corrections, it just misses somehow. Over-exposed (?), signage, soft in foreground perhaps - ughh...

See what you can do with this. Let's try to get a nice crisp architecture photo out of it...

Original DNG: November 10 2010 018.DNG

Original JPG:

again... sorry for being asleep at the switch. I have never won a PP Challenge and did not think to check... audiobomber did send an email, but it got kind of lost in the sauce. So very sorry.

Cropping, change of perspective, dynamic range adjustment, basic curves.

Didn't think I'd have as much fun with this as I did.

Sunken portico

I used Paintshop Photo Pro X3. After looking at the other entries It doesn't appear to be a very oriinal idea.

We'll close this out at midnight. Thanks for bailing me out guys! Out of the pan, into the fire... this will be hard to judge.
