This is my entry for a local camera club competition, with the set subject 'Friendship'. It's a re-processed version of my picture from a couple of months ago.

Following on from MadTrace, BigCol and Iain I hope we all do well.

Really like the processing done on this it really works well.
Should do well too, if there's any justice!

Thanks Col, it's based on the 'Dave Hill effect. You basically max out all the basic settings in Lightroom, and some serious curves for added effect.

Thanks I was just about to add that you'll have to let me know how you did it but the link and basic outline give me a clue. Cheers.

Here's where I first found out how to do it: link

Try that, and then play around a little. I set up 'presets' in lightroom which do this as well as a 75%, 50% and 25% version. I could send them you if you like.

Justice? from a club judge? There hasn't been much of that recently!

Darren - I also like it allot - I've always loved this image as it summed up our day in Brighton perfectly.

I'm going to see how I can set up a preset for this in Aperture.

Still makes me smile as I now remember what we were laughing about... Wonder if Iain still has that image?

Think this is a wonderful shot as like Iain said it sums up the whole day in the one image x

Like the re-working, great capture of a very natural scene. Geoff
