PP Challenge #347

Here's a shot from last year with the K1+A20/2.8. There should be enough imperfections in there to pose a proper challenge

Link to DNG and full size JPEG.

Multiple entries welcome.

I will close this challenge on Sunday evening Oct 25th Europe time.

For the next host, if you want to share a raw image:

G'day,

Just wanted to point out that unless the password did change to the spelling quoted above with an 's' instead of a 'c' in postprocessing then you may not be able to access the site. If so try the phrase as spelt in bold here as the host message changed between PP Challenges #344 & #345 though I don't know why.

Perfect photo for trying out the new PS sky replace tool. Tweaked it around a bit, not sure I'm happy with the tree area up top. new technology? user learning curve? this might take some getting used to. Blasted it with a faux ifra-red -ish bw treatment for giggles.

Here's my attempt, I tried to straighten that building up, then realised it may be wonky as some of the lines don't go all the way down!

The front (to the left) is curved and has a bit of an overhang. It's not the best benchmark to use when trying to straighten the A20/28 distortions

Thanks to all the participants for joining in! As always, it is great fun to see the different interpretations. There is always something to learn from these challenges.

xs400
Nice sky replacement. It was a dull day. The careful straightening works a treat, well done!

mariwalt
The tighter crop and cleaning up of the skyline helps making the bridge the star of the show. The warmer colours amkes the scene a tad more cozy, too.

astonm
Dramatic treatment! It reminds me of what you will end up with if you add some overlay layers in PS. I guess the replacement algorithm struggles with finer details? I would also think that any flaws have been amplified through the increased contrast.

tuggie76
A darker mood well aided by some desaturation of the colurs. Putting the arch in the centre also pulls us into that darkness. I think you have gotten the maximum out of the existing sky. And your version is actually straighter than reality

noelcmn
I find it surprising that pulling in the white point is this effective in pulling (or pushing!) the eye towards the bridge. I guess it makes sense since the contrast in the sky and building is lowered. I wonder how it would work with a slightly warmer tone.
The b&w edition works well, too. Refreshing with the yellow tint rather than the more common blue or orange (or both - I'm a sucker for blu-orange split toning!)

jmacias
The opening up of the shadows makes for a much more inviting scene - and demostrates how much detail there is to pull out from these modern sensors!

The runner up this time is xs400 with what I would deem the most natural looking edition. I will, however, pick astonm's outrageous infra-red edition as the winner of the challenge.

Congrats to @astonm !

Oh cool ! Thanks for picking me. Yes that photo had all sorts of crazy angles to deal with, and so many options of how to deal with it. and.... that building is gorgeous!
I've got one in mind for the next round. I'll get right to it.
Thanks again.
