This was taken a couple days ago and I thought I'd take on the challenge of removing a good portion of the contrast, as this shot was originally full of contrast. Perhaps eliminating the contrast in post is not the point. But if I don't at least try this challenge, how will I learn?

*Hello from Sid and the Critique club*

A failed attempt that does not meet the challenge.

Although the challenge brief does not specifically state low contrast with or without post processing the essence of the challenge is to find in your surroundings a scene that exhibits low contrast characteristics. To take an initially high contrast scene, desaturate it and reduce the contrast is not, in my opinion what this challenge is about and I think that is reflected in your voters reaction too.

I find it interesting that you have chosen to include the drainpipe as an important element within your composition but I am unsure why you have done it. I would imagine the original artistry was very impressive and would have made a good study on its own, its not apparent to me how the pipe adds to the overall end result in any beneficial way.

Well done for trying and do keep on contributing and learning, Sid

Clever idea but I'm not a great fan of the processing.

Looks like it became low contrast in post processing
