The return of the RAW challenge...

Here's a shot I took in 2008 from my first ever car shoot.

The challenge is to take the RAW file and edit it however you like to create the best shot you can, then upload it to this thread.

Obviously this is just for fun - please don't use the image for anything other than this challenge Smile

Will post a link to the image when it uploads

I think this is going to be a really interesting challenge.

Are you restricting us to just making the colour, sharpness, saturation etc better or will you allow cloning, cropping (as above) and additions etc?

Shall we say it's a "do what you think it takes to get an award" challenge...


That way we let people have the freedom to do what they want... within reason. It is a friend's car after all... Wink Putting it on the moon is fine, putting 2 page 3 girls in it... nah


I'm just doing lightroom stuff and cloning out those posts... not adding any birds or owt.... well actually Wink

....is it worth doing this in a group where we can see them at 1000 pixels?

How about heavy cropping and a colour change? Wink Tongue

There was a lot of rubbish to clone out so I thought I'd save a bit of time Wink
