  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).

    A fall evening in beautiful Québec City.

  2. Pulled the shadows up and eliminated the empty foreground via crop
  3. Slight cropping LR. Added tonal contrast in NIK 1623982_525d8347a53f179a7831b9dcaac3260e.jpg
  4. Nice capture, Punta! Here's an abstract version.
  5. ppc 10-3.jpg
    I used Topaz Simplify in Photoshop to make a painterly representation. I added the Topaz version as a layer over the original image and revealed various aspects of the original and added a moon.

    Another fine photo to play with!
  6. Second attempt. Overlay and lots of gradient masks. maybe.jpg

    I used PS CS6 to replace the sky in the upper right. Then I adjusted color balance and cropped the image.

  8. Started with LR adjustments, then to Dynamic Auto Painter and back to LR for more tinkering.
  9. I'm busy as a volunteer (amongst other things) for my local biennial 6-week long Photo Festival at the moment. So I don't often have time or energy to contribute to the weekly PP challenge. In a couple of weeks, things will get back to normal. I did take a quick stab at this one by:
    - square cropping to focus more closely on the people
    - reducing the yellows in the WB
    - adding a shade of blue in the shadows
    - making sure everyone more a mask , except when eating.

  10. Hi Mike. Adding the masks is good and timely statement!
    The photo was taken in 2011. I would not like to make anyone think that the good people of Quebec City were not wearing masks when advised to do so.
