Post-Processing Challenge #227

Post Processing Challenge #227

Welcome! Thanks to our previous host, Bruce Banner, for hosting.

It's not a super photo, but I'm hoping I've provided a chance for each of you to sharpen your post-processing skills and have a bit of fun. Please feel free to be creative, or put a serious spin on it--it's up to you! Just have fun with it!

Multiple entries are encouraged.

I'll close this one to entries next Thursday night, July 7th. The winner I select gets to host the next one. And all PF members are welcome to participate!

Help me out... show me something in this photo, please!

A note to the winner: Please copy and post this info into the next challenge.

Edit: Despite the round being wrapped up by dcshooter, I was thinking back to our host's brilliant scene stretching entries last round, and this idea came to me...

It's titled "What's Happening Hotstuff" and whoever guesses the reference first gets to have duck for dinner.

Ok... my turn, I'll have a quack at this xD
I tried to rescue highlights, emphasize the colours, deepen the contrast, keep as much bokeh as possible and not add clarity to the background. I also increased the warmth of the picture.

EDIT: I didn't see dcshooters pic ^, we musta submitted the same time, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered with my own submission. Clearly the winner has been found already, day one lmao, lights out, gg!

I've just gotten word that our friend the duck, also known as Atomic Duck, will be flying south for the winter come just under 48 hours from now. So get your entries in while there's still time! You know you want to!

As dcshooter has a lock on #227, I was at a loss as what to do, so I decided to work on a portrait shot for the star to share with his fans.

Well done dcshooter! (I hope you don't mind me having a little fun with your concept)

I like it. If the job came open, would you be interested in a job as Mega Duck's publicist?

BTW, for the next picture, we are pitching Mega Duck vs. Godzilla, Battle of the Atomic Titans, but ol' Scaly only shows up when he wants to show up.

I am a bit pressed at the moment for time and, in the interest of keeping these contests moving, I'm going to forgo commenting on each of your entries, despite each of them being deserved of praise. I learned something from everyone this week and I thank you all for your efforts.

There was one entry that stood out a bit, lol. Dcshooter took my challenge to try something creative to heart and in doing so it's plain to see he a blast in the process! Dcshooter, thank you and Mega Duck for putting a smile on my face and many others. You are the big winner.

Thanks everyone.
