Anybody up for this. I haven't done this in a couple of years and I miss it. Plus, it seems like a good time for it for some reason...

Here's a link to one of the past ones to give you an idea.

Basically it goes like this:

-Each participant signs up with a link to a full res original in his/her workshop.

-Participation sign up ends this Friday July, 5th, at midnight.

-10 photos will be hand picked by a small group of fellow DCPers and will be posted to a seperate thread Monday. This thread will be similar to the link above.

-Each participant, whether their photo was picked for the contest or not, will have a week to edit these 10 photos. NO editing restrictions, but the owner of the photo may provide insight in their comments section as to what they're looking for and editors MUST include their editing steps in their comments section.

-During the following week, the ten participants whose photos were used will pick their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo and points will be added up for a winner.

Sign up here if you're interested but remember to post a link to your original in your workshop by Friday.

Yes, I always enjoyed that little side challenge. I'm in.

Does the original file have to be RAW?
No?
Then I'm in!

I'll get a file ready and update this message with the link later tonight...

(so it took me a couple days... sue me...)

For those wanting to play with the raw .NEF file, it's linked in the image description...

OK, as long as you guys have something in by Friday night, we'll be fine.
07/01/2013 03:52:58 PM · #8
I need to work on my processing so this is just the shove I need, count me in. I'll get an image ready in the next day or so and posted here.

Bump for the early evening crowd... :D I'm really looking forward to this!
07/01/2013 08:15:17 PM · #11
i'll give this a go. sounds fun!

not sure i ever uploaded a full res file to my workshop. i assume better to upload a TIFF as opposed to a Nikon NEF??

also, how should it be designated, or should i post the link here?

Large JPGs will do :)

i picked a photo that has potential, but needs some (major) work. the link to the WS image is PPChallenge 2013
07/01/2013 10:19:19 PM · #14
Sign me up. Sounds like fun.
07/01/2013 10:40:09 PM · #15
I'm going to throw the first one in. It's a large JPG in my workshop. Nothing is set in stone until Friday night, so no problem if you post then change your mind...

If posted this way, there is a "view full-sized" option underneath the photo that makes this challenge possible.

First I made it b&w in Nik Efex Pro using a higher contrast filter.
Then I use two overlays. The first one gave it the texture and I used a blending mode of "hard light"
The second layer was almost completely black and I used a blending mode of "Overlay"
Then I flattened the image and increased the contrast.

If you're interested, I can post the two overlays.

Hold your horses Bob! We haven't started yet! Please refer to OP. ....but I appreciate the enthusiasm! :)
07/02/2013 06:02:09 AM · #25
I would like to participate in this for sure. Sounds brilliant!
