Thank you to all that have jumped in on PP Challenge #270, it's good to get some more versions submitted, even if it makes me job harder.

Will be looking at closing the challenge in a bit over 24 hours.

I made a couple of modifications to my previous version.
(1) The major change is to offer an alternative that is lighter.
(2) A minor adjustment to correct for the apparent barrel distortion of the lens.

I don't know if it is cricket, but the change (lighten the image) was likely the result of seeing some of the other pp versions that were posted.

Well that's it for PP Challenge #270.

I struggled for an image to choose that was worth selecting over the others submitted but as always it's a close run thing and after about 15 minutes going back and forth through the options I decided on a winner to choose for the next host.

Some notes on the areas of work I liked included the more 3D look of some images where the surfer was not just jumping off the board but also out of the screen. This was not easy considering how hazy the scene was so our winner and todd were two really good examples of this.

D1NO and tuggie76 went with some unique changes each with their own challenges to make them work. That rear leg is at a funny angle and almost looks like a third arm. Something that would come in handy if he was jumping in with a shark.

I like some of the tones people were working with, the turquoise look to the wave was particularly good and the colours represented were a wide gamut from mono through shades of colour to strong saturation. Interesting how colour or lack of if influenced the scene captured.

Okay, so that's some observations I wanted to pass on along with my many thanks for those who've jumped into the challenge either as a returnee or a first timer. Whichever one you are I appreciate you taking the time to work on a difficult image and hope you stick around for a bit or drop by the challenge when you can.

That's about as much stalling I can probably get away with so without further ado, I nominate rawr as the host for #270 for this version:



Congratulations mate, I hope you can find something different, difficult or both to throw down the gauntlet for PP Challenge #271.

Congrats Rawr, nice work. Good choice of a winner, and a hearty thanks to Tas, not just for jumping in to host this round, but also for the judging exercise. A challenging image fir sure, but as usual some interesting takes on the PP!

Hmmm, I could have sworn I dropped rawr a PM but can't seem to find it in my PM thingy. Will try them again to see if they will take up hosting the next challenge.

My apologies to anyone looking to join in for the next one.

Okay, I've now contacted the winner twice, I guess they don't want to participate as a host as there's been no reply despite them participating in other areas of the forum.

Accordingly, I will open up the floor to anyone who wants to be host of PP Challenge #271. The details are in the first post of this thread for how to be host.

Good luck, I hope the challenge continues on.

I'd like to host the next challenge. I've got a raw image with tricky WB that I'd like to see improved.
