Thank you for the concern. Nothing to do with the corona virus. The past several years have been quite demanding for me, but I am not complaining as it is hopefully getting me set up for retirement.

I have been honored to host quite a few of these over the years.

I always find it difficult to select a host for the next challenge and make comments. I chose poorly for a closing date for this one as I have just completed a long work shift and am quite tired. I thought of postponing until tomorrow, but I have an obligation after work tomorrow. I don't want to delay the next challenge, so I hope you will forgive me as I will not make comments on each, but just select the next host. I truly appreciated the different approaches that were displayed here. Each has its own merit and appeal, but I will select todd to host the next challenge. I liked the choice of a panorama crop, sharpening and retaining the details of the mountains while using the front saguaro in a tight crop. Well done and congratulations todd! Well done everyone! Thank you for participating.

Thank you savoche for hosting 327 and the great image to work with. I hope everyone finds this image worthy of your efforts.

It is photograph of Four Peaks, a prominent feature of the Mazatzal Mountains, northeast of Phoenix Arizona. It is so named for the four peaks close to each other, except for this day when the peaks are concealed in the clouds and are now "No Peaks"! The tallest of the four peaks, Brown's Peak is the highest point in Maricopa County.

Do what you will with it and contribute as many versions as you wish. I will close this challenge Tuesday April 28.

Let the festivities commence!

I want to thank each of you who participated in this challenge. I always find it difficult to select a host for the next challenge, there is always such a wide range of results, from dramatic to subdued and also black and white. Each with their own merits.

scphoto - Welcome to Pentax Forums and to the post prcessing challenge. You started us off with a B&W version nicely executed.

mariwalt - You were able to keep the colors of the red rock balanced nicely with the whites of the snow and greens of the trees.

Bruce Clark - An interesting choice, setting the mountains and sky in the background to B&W and thereby drawing the attention into the canyon foreground in color.

tmlawes - You choice to retain more of the sky than others and have a nice balance of the colors.

jmacias - You chose a portrait crop and focus the attention to the canyon.

noelcmn - The most dramatic entry with vibrant colors.

lidy - A well balanced take on the image.

tuggie 76 - A nicely balanced image with a slightly brighter look.

todd - Two B&W entries, each with a slightly different feel. The first showing the expanse of the scene and the second more focused on the formations in the foreground.

savoche - A color and a B&W, both well done.

Tas - These challenges are always a good place to try out the new "toys". A nice image.

It wasn't easy, but I must select the host for the next challenge and I will bestow that honor on savoche for the color entry.





This was my result:

It is time to bring #309 to a close. I want thank each of you who participated in this and past challenges and keep them going.

Well lets get to it....

Tas - Good to have you back! A nice well balanced image, retaining the storm clouds to the right, the colors of the sunset to the left and still keeping the canyon visible.

photocles - A bright image while still retaining the stormy feel of the day.

Metafrastis - A great job enhancing the rays of the sun and drawing the focus of the image to the sun.

aitrus3 - Wonderful job of bringing out the colors of the sunset.

todd - An excellent job of sharpening and bringing out the details of the canyon. The most vibrant color of the entries and truly brings the "wow" to the image. Well done!

vector - You chose a cooler temp for the image, befitting the evening hour well.

tuggie76 - A very nice, but subtle enhancing of the sun's rays into the canyon.

noelcmn - You elected to shine a beam of light into the canyon from the sun. The beam naturally draws the viewer's attention through the canyon and to the sun.

mariwalt - An excellent job at retaining the stormy feel of the day with the sun peaking underneath the clouds.

Well done everyone, but I must select one to bestow the honor of hosting 310.

I will bestow this honor to todd! Congratulations!
