Here'a new idea folks.
I'm linking to an image below that, if processed properly, might just turn out to be a keeper. It's a full-size JPEG converted from a NEF (RAW) file shot today on my camera (sig). As I have been unable (so far) to upload a RAW file this'll have to do. There were no in-camera settings retained, other than White Balance and colourspace (AdobeRGB).
Use whatever software you want to. The only stipulation I'm making is that the original image should not be corrupted in any way which might break forum guidelines. Common decency applies, there are minors here. Oh, one more rule, any subsequent posts of edited images must follow forum guidelines and be no larger than 500px wide.
Please go at it. Have fun. The guys who are good at this might like to share some tips and those - like me - who aren't so acomplished might like to ask questions about specific techniques and/or effects.
Above all, enjoy.
