DPNow.com Photo Fix Challenge 5
 
Here is a summary or excerpt from an article that has just been published on DPNow:

http://dpnow.com/images2/7021/P1230755smaller.jpg


Back by popular demand - and, yes, we should run the challenge more often, here is the fifth DPNow.com Photo Fix Challenge. It's quite simple; we provide the original camera file of the picture above and you transform it, either in terms of image quality or artistic interpretation - better still, both.

Have you taken up the challenge?

Next time, I'd like to source an image from one of the forum members if possible.

It took such a long time to sort through all my photos to find one that needed improving *LOL*whack:D:):rolleyes:

Lightroom 3 beta 2 is free until June and has excellent noise reduction tools, see:

Hi all, this is isn't a conventional forum challenge :) You need to download the original file from the article page and then send your reworked version to the email address there as well. It needs to be high resolution, not just web resolution. I will print the best candidates and evaluate from the prints.

Mmm. The page freezes on me Ian. I have mentioned this in the past. That is why I posted here as I had not seen the rules.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to reproduce your problem with the page :confused: - I can see the page using IE8 with compatibility mode on or off.

Are you possibly using any add-ons or utilities like ad-blockers that could be the culprit?

I get a freeze up with a lot of internal links.
I overcome this by .......
first I click on the link, the one in your previous post for instance.
The page opens but freezes.
I then minimise the frozen page and carry on doing other stuff for a while.
After a few minutes I get a message warning me about a script that is running which could effect my browsing. It asks if I want to stop the script. I click 'Yes' and the minimised page then works perfectly.

Audrey,

You need to go to the article page at http://dpnow.com/7021.html and download the full file. There's a choice of downloading either the original RAW or jpeg file.

Rework the full file to do the photofix challenge file then email it to the address shown on that article page.

Ian then prints the reworked images and evaluates them from the prints.

mmmm, Im not being awkward, its not like me is it *LOL
but it seems too much faffing than it needs to be, could we not just alter the pic Ian has posted?
I can see the method in the madness, as Ian gets to see the full resolution image what people have altered but I think it would be better if we could just do a quick fix.
I suppose its fine if your retired, kids left home, grass is trimmed nicely, missuz is at bingo and you just have that much time on your hands that you can find time to alter someone elses raw file for the fun of it, maybe im missing the point:\
Ohh and why am I blabbing on about something that I don't have time to blab on about:eek: Bot bots to make, nappies to change, work to go to, its all go in the wignall house. Someone said I should start a blog but I dont no, who would be interested in my life? It would be the same thing everyday*LOL
