Post-Processing Challenge #304 - Grand Canyon Panorama

Welcome to Post-Processing Challenge #304

For this week's challenge you must assemble the shots to make a pano. Or you may elect to use a single image. Or use two images. Whatever your heart desires!

Since this is a bit more involved than working with a single image, I'll close this one to new entries Saturday evening, August 17th EDT.

Enter as many versions as you like. Have fun!!!

Well my second work at PS... I did want the colors so soft and natural as possible.

That does it for this week's challenge. Thank you all for participating.

I'm a sucker for a wonderful Grand Canyon image. This one, as most are well aware, isn't wonderful. But I still found it fun to take in the details at 100% and hope those of you that worked on it did as well.

A few thoughts on the each of your entries, followed by my pick for the winner and lucky host of the next contest.


Glenn5995 (Color Entry) - A very pleasing and very natural take. Great job bringing up the shadows while still retaining detail in the sky above the canyon.

Tomzohh – You expertly brought out detail and color contrast in the canyon. It appears you added a bit of sky to the image, putting an emphasis on the light and the sun beams. Nice work. Particularly for your second attempt in PS!

Glenn5995 (B&W Entry) – You cropped away a bit more of the sky and the bright but not so interesting foreground rocks, putting an emphasis on the river and inviting the viewer to peruse the image’s many nooks and crannies. The added contrast and sharpening suits this black & white image well.

Racer X 69 – You presented three entries: a richly saturated color version, a sepia toned B&W, and a combination of the two. It was technically a cold February day when these images were taken (as evidenced by the white patch of melting snow at the bottom of the picture), but the added warmth from the sepia toning looks and feels entirely appropriate in your color/sepia blend and is my favorite of your three versions.

tuggie76 - You presented a very striking and saturated version, almost reminiscent of Velvia 50. You cropped away some of the lower canyon and river, drawing the viewer's attention to the sunlit walls. Nice work!

photocles - Everything from retaining the detail in the sky's highlights (props for dealing with the vignetting as well as, or maybe better than, anyone) to bringing up the canyon's shadows, was done very tastefully without feeling overdone.

Arizona Dave - Superb work. The strong contrasting canyon walls make for a delightful image, and the sharpening/compression/resizing looks great on my monitor. I could stare at your version for quite a while!


And now for the really hard part . . .


It was very close, but the first runner up is: Arizona Dave.

And the winner is: Glenn5995's black and white entry.


Congratulations Glenn! You put the setting sun on the back burner, so to speak, but you made the canyon shine. Well done!!!

Thank you JHfwp for hosting and taking the time to comment on the entries.

It may take me a couple days to get the next challenge going (long work days), if Arizona Dave has one ready to go, by all means please go ahead and start the next challenge.
