Ok, I'm going to get this moving. Here is the game plan in brief.

Individual Post Processing (PP) Shootout

Phase 1 - submission of candidates jpegs for selection of the PP individual challenge images. Duration: 1 week. I will select three images from those submitted and get the RAW (or high resolution jpegs if you don't shoot RAW) files for the selected images.

Phase 2 - members work on the 3 images. Duration: 3 weeks.

Phase 3 - members post images for voting. Duration 2 days.

Phase 4 - voting phase. Duration 1 week.

Phase 5 - winner announced.


Team Post Processing (PP) Shootout (note the timing of this challenge will be the same as the phases for the individual challenge)

Phase 1 - team members identified. All members wanting to participate in the team shootout indicate so by stating so on this thread. We will need at least 6 members to make this work, I believe.

Phase 2 - I will randomly select team members (a team will be 2 members) and teams will get to work. One member will provide the other team member with one image (basically a raw image straight from the camera) to post process and the other member will do the same. Teams will work off line during this phase.

Phase 3 - The teams will post there images for voting.

Phase 4 - Voting phase

Phase 5 - Winner announced.

There will be a prize of some modest value for the individual winner and if I can identify some fun thing(s), I may be able provide a prize for the winner team as well.

Hope all of that is clear. So...let's go.

I'm opening Phase 1:

Individual PP Shootout - submit candidate photos here.

Team PP Shootout - identify yourself as wanting to participate.

I'm in!

Phase ends February 29th around local midnight. (note this has now been extended several days per a request.)

I'm going to throw out some images to consider for the PP shootout. I didn't put a limit on how many can be submitted per person but let's keep it reasonable to say 3-5 or so.

Remember at the end of Phase 1, I will select three for the challenge.

Great, like I said in the set up, if we get 6 members wanting to team, I'll randomly select the 2 person teams. Glad you're in.

Also as far as the images I've just posted, these are to be potential candidates for the individual challenge. I intend to select the three ultimately to be used for the shootout but I'll factor in any thoughts when we get all submission candidates. Furthermore, if you do submit some candidates here, these are to be jpegs. The three that will be used will be in RAW format or if that is unavailable, the highest resolution jpeg possible.

I will give you a answer by Monday. Is this a learning experiance on how each of us would approach a image for processing? I have a lot of travel over the next 30-45 days so finding the time this may need could be a challenge. Again, will let you know by Monday. JIM

I completely understand about your travel schedule. My intention was to allow us to demonstrate our PP skills and perhaps work outside our comfort zone. I'll hold it open for you Jim through Monday. You can always participate in the individual challenge and not the team deal if that works for you.
