Hi everybody,

Here's the new challenge. I wanted to take a picture of this tree which has umpteen bird houses on it. Unfortunately, everything is wrong with this picture: it's leaning to the left, overexposed, with areas that are completely blown out - all the settings were wrong. The only lens I had at hand was the Sigma 10-20. Could one of you try to deliver something more presentable?

The DNG can be found here: File sharing and storage made simple

and the JPEG here:

The challenge is open till Wednesday 4 March 24:00hrs CET.

I bought at least one of those bird house models for my step mom. (travel trailer blue) or at least very similar.

Great, I love bird houses!

Are you going to have a go to make this picture look any better?

Don't look too closely at the sky among the branches; you'll find errors. And you'll find sharpening artifacts all over. Resized and resharpened twice but didn't use GIMP which is much better at that than my everyday go-to jpeg editor PhotoFiltre.

I cropped my version - the emphasis on the road and tree seemed to need it - plus it drops a lot of that white sky.
