  1. There are no rules as to how you apply your post-processing to this image; but, please let us know what you have done so we can all learn.
    If you would like to post a candidate image next week, please ensure it is of sufficiently high resolution for manipulation by the participants (3000px on the long side, 300dpi for example).

    Most of all, let's have fun while we are learning or demonstrating how we use our post-processing software, imaginations and interpretations.

  2. Fantastic, Mike. Forced perspective at it's best. Thank you for posting. I am ran out of interesting candidates a long time ago and I believe the challenge has suffered for it.

  3. Once again, Thanx Mike.

    'Karen stood lookout as the other cows hid in the tall grass.'
    Alternate captions:
    'They waited for the guy in the red shirt'.
    'Unfortunately, Ambling Past the Cows didn't have the same tourism draw as Running of the Bulls'

    Many more come to mind.

    Just a bit of a straighten for the horizon (based on distant roof), selection and duplication of horns and scalp, blur in accordance with perspective, border.

  4. I saw it more of a love story ... a couple... horns interlocked ... gazing at each other ...
  5. I actually learned a lot about my photiography from my 'trawl' and I still have a couple of candidates. So I'm happy to fill in for a few weeks. Of course, it would be even better if others did too :)

  6. To my surprise, I had a lot of fun wondering how I could PP my own photo ' out-of-my-box'. This is what I eventually came up with.

    Trouble in the pasture.

    I can provide the next PPC.
  8. I gave Bucolic Boy a close-up and a new sky.
  9. Punta, you have kept this Forum going for as long as I remember. You have no cause for an apology.

  10. First, I drastically cropped the image (PSE2020).Then I converted to B&W (a film noir preset which I modified somewhat). Then, I gave the image a sepia tone, followed by a slight white vignette. Back to PSE, I used the sharpening tool slightly on the cow and people. BTW, if this were my image, I'd entitle it, "Staredown."

  11. Just basic correction in Photoshop
