Special Meetup! So please read...
For August's meetup, we are going to challenge you all to use your talents and any image manipulation program(s) you have available to make an ordinary image extraordinary. That's right photogs- we provide an image, you work your magic on it, then share it with the group at this months meetup!
The newly created image can range from something with subtle changes in color for the purpose of enhancement, to something that is totally unlike the original image. Subtly enhanced? Abstract? Surreal? You decide what will be the most appealing to you and give us your best "shot"! Bring your one best project-able image to the meet-up to be viewed by all, and the owners of the three best images( judged by the group through silent votes) will be asked to explain what techniques they used to create their masterpieces.
Want to Play? Here is where you can go to download the image:
There is a raw version at 12 MB which you will need raw conversion software to open or you can just download the JPEG and work on this one. Your choice.
To download the image from drop box just click on the image and then go to the lower right corner - you will see three dots "..." click them and hit download.
Now- Bring it - Photogs! The challenge has been made.
