Pentax Compact Camera Post Processing Contest #17

Haven't been here in a while, so I might be a little rusty at this, but here goes...

The Rules
1. Have Fun!
2. Use any Post Processing Software and techniques.
3. Entries will close on November 30, 2013.
4. Maximum image dimensions for entries are 1024x768 pixels
5. Max of 3 image entries per person. Entries may be withdrawn or changed
6. List software used, as well as your method, with your entry so we can all learn.
7. There are no limits or restrictions - make the subject image into whatever you want!
But please do not copy or alter other entries....
8. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date, and judge’s the next competition.
9. Have Fun!

Ok, here's a really boring shot for you to work with...
This is a very low resolution scan of an image taken using an old Kodak Senior Six-16 that I modified many years ago to take pictures on 120 roll film using various formats up to 60 X 130.
The image sharpness will not be the best due to the low rez scan, but it should suffice.


The original low rez scan can be downloaded using the following link.
Once opened, click on the magnifying glass located at the lower right hand side of the image, this will enlrge the image slightly... Click the magnifying glass one more time to open the full size image.


Hopefully this will work...

P.S. This is the actual camera that was used above... it's a little dusty, but I still have it!

No problems here either. This one looks like fun. I like the idea it's an old school film shot. Way to go, Mike!

I went for a darker semi-grunge look. I cropped, warmed up the tone and did some clone work here and there. I also wanted to keep the square crop; this one with a B & W treatment. All edits done in the free trial Lightroom 5, I'm trying out.

Good stuff Edith!
In fact, your first image is reminiscent of my original darkroom developement way back when.
Lightroom is a hell of a program... enjoy!

Mike

Thanks, Mike! I did some B&W developing back in the day and really enjoyed the whole process.

I really like Lightroom 5, so far, but I might hold out for the next generation before I upgrade again.

I recently got another product from Nik (free of charge along with some hick-ups after an unannounced upgrade for the whole package ): Analogue Efex.
Nevertheless, now I have it available I might as well get acquainted with it.

I started by choosing a crop and fiddled a bit with the lighting in LR.
Might as well before I mess it up in the next steps

1st version with the new Analogue Efex. Lots of possibilities there!




2nd version with the for me more familiar DxO FilmPack4 where I choose an emulation of Velvia 50.




Last version with Silver Efex 2.




I added a white border but I realised this does little with the white backdrop from PentaxForums
So, I went into DxO FilmPack4 to superimpose another border.

Outstanding job Bart... I think the 1st & 3rd are your best... at least in my opinion, and I am the judge, so...

The judge is always right of course
(if only by definition)

Thanks Mike!
