Challenge has finished
How much processing is too much processing? In this challenge, we're going to find out! Take an original photo (one of yours, please) and process the daylights out of it -- but don't go beyond into over-processing. How close can you come to that fine line between good and gaudy? The voters will decide if your image is great or if you've gone too far!
