After fixing Vintage Red's laptop last night, we decided to have a RAW challenge, I wanted to see what he does with his shots and he wanted to see what I do. So I dug through my archives and found this shot which I thought would be suitably challenging.
I did my usual bracketed exposure with different layers, Nick did his thing with selective colour.
When we saw the final results I think it is fair to say he liked some of what I acheived and I liked the colour that he acheived. We both agreed that the shot needed cropping so we did that.
Unfortunately, my first effort is now sitting on Nick's laptop, alongside his, so this is a hybrid. I used a lot of his technique and mine to produce an image I am now happy with.
So, Nick, when you get back from Padley, upload your version and my original as a mod and let's see how they all look!
Thanks for looking, all comments welcome.

the subtle colours in the sky are nice - looks like a nice balanced exposure in the end result

You've managed to achieve a wide range of tones Jon and the overall result looks good. There's a calmness to the shot, which fits well with what you've done, no great contrast levels to upset the balance. Nice work.

Looking forward to seeing Nicks version. Its great going photographing with someone, I have a friend (brm) who is a graphic designer and he 'sees' differently to me. Processing the same file is the next step I suppose. Its amazing how, even at EPZ meets, we still all get such different images.

I revisited this shot taken on a summer evening in Bayeux with my son Jacob (Redlion). His view can be seen here
It was taken on a compact and I'm too mean to get him EPZ membership! But I do like the composition he's got.

You're right, it does need a crop. Still a fine image, though, whichever way you cut it.

We both learnt a lot from this exercise and had fun too! Pains me to say it, but I think Nick's version wins for subtlety.
