The photo challenge this week by Peter Carvey was to take a mediocre photo and see if you could jazz it up to be a better shot. Take a look at the original first and some of the wonderful and creative effects people applied in post. Use this link to see what normal people submitted.
Here is the original, admittedly, less-than-stellar photo by Peter.
Okay. Then there's mine...
I didn't post it on the DPS site (couldn't figure out how since I don't have a website anyway), but I determined from some of the comments that not everyone has my sense of humor, and it wouldn't be appreciated. I do not wish to annoy people worldwide. But YOU guys should be used to my posts by now, and I hope you do enjoy a little fun with Photoshop. I realize that T3DS is also worldwide, but I hope you're not annoyed. I'm just trying to learn.
My version of the photo.
(p.s. I desaturated the image, increased contrast, used curves, cropped it...and then, well, went a little nuts)
