*** Mini-Challenge 336 – Raw Editing ***
Aug 5, 2012

Thanks a bunch to HSC4711 for the "A Rainy Day" mini-challenge.

Your challenge this week is to edit one or two raw files. If you feel competent to do that, this is a chance to find out how other people interpret and edit the same images. If you've never really got into it, here's your chance to have a go with a bunch of others who are able to help you by working with the same images at the same time.

First up, a simple one. Here's the OOC JPEG -

Eclipse Island - 15-85 @ 15mm and f/6.3, 60D @ 1/15th and ISO 200.

Raw file - http://db.tt/DCnhxJZu

The challenge with that one is to make it interesting without going over the top.

And here's a more challenging one, with a difficult exposure and a horrible colour cast. OOC JPEG -

Violin Players - 70-300L @ 270mm and f/8, 60D @ 1/125th and ISO 400.

Raw file - http://db.tt/yluXSGev

The first challenge with that one is to get them looking normal, and whatever you can do beyond that is a bonus.

Please share the tools and techniques you use so that others can try them out.

If you have any questions or need any help along the way, just ask. Have fun with it.

As the judge I will be looking for images I like more than what I did with them (I'll post my edits in the winners thread).

This challenge will close at 12:00 midday on Sunday the 12th of August, Western Australian time (UTC +8:00).

Special Rule (overrules the Standard Rules and Posting Guidelines)

Feel free to share up to three variants of each image (use a separate reply for each set).

Standard Rules

The host gives you a topic of interest. You post a maximum of three images. Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and camera.

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo (because we like to know).

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. If you want people to give you constructive criticism, ask for C&C.

The host chooses the winner. The host's decision is final. The host is not eligible.

The winner then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner, and passes on the baton to that person. The winner has 48 hours to post the new challenge. If that doesn't happen 2nd place has 24 hours to do so, and if that doesn't happen it's up to the 3rd place winner.

Posting Guidelines

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to display your picture titles and/or your name. This way, when someone replies it will refer specifically to you. If all entries read "Re: *** Mini-Challenge xxx - ... ***" it would be very boring to scan the list.

Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).

You may enter up to 3 pictures, but put them in a single post. Please give a title to each photo, this makes it easier to differentiate when giving comments.

Please size your photo no bigger than around 1200 pixels on the longest dimension. This is to let those with smaller monitors to see your image at full resolution. Please limit the file size of your entries to conserve bandwidth.

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous photos.
