Challenge: The 80s (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Nikon Coolpix 7900
Location: NY
Date: Feb 19, 2006

Had these cartridges in all sorts of strange configurations, but I liked this one best. Processed a little more than normal so I could get the Atari symbol to stand out more instead of looking like a bunch of individual cartridges.

Crop, Contrast +5, Brightness +5, fixed color cast, lightened highlights, more adjustments to bright/contrast (+30 each?), cloned out shadows, resized, unsharp mask, saved.

WOW~ Last time I saw that many Atari games in one place was a store, LOL! Nice idea, the set up is good. The background has different colors to it, wrinkles or something that just show up and are a bit distracting. Also there is a hot spot on some of the games in the middle. A 6
