  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).

  4. What a beautiful photo you gave us, Glenn.
    I was struck by how 4 main colours struck my eye and how textures were striped across the image background.
    All of what I did was in LR as a black and white. Down with blue, orange, red and green and up with the yellows. I used the regional adjustment tool and added texture on the combine. For the cheese topping I applied a vignette.

  5. Decrease exposure for sky, increase exposure for the rest:

  7. I used the program Luminar 4 to replace the sky, I then adjusted colors and added Lens Flare using PS CS6.

  9. Fading into history.
    Selected combine and moved it to a new layer. Content aware fill for an expanded hole where the combine was. Brought back combine and changed the opacity.
