MCP Editing and Photography Challenges: Highlights from this Week

Edit Challenge Banner

This week the MCP Facebook Group issued another fun editing challenge. This week’s image, shot by Abigail Hardy, is a full of boyish charm and wonder. Here is the original image:

The photo challenges give you a chance to flex your creative muscles to edit other photographer’s images, share them for critique, and see how others edit the same photographs.  Participating allows you to practice editing, learn how to give constructive criticism, and watch what steps or Photoshop actions and Lightroom presets are used in various edits.

If you would like to get your creative juices flowing and try your hand at editing this photo, JOIN US HERE.

We would like to thank  Abigail Hardy for allowing us to use this photo.  

Several of members of the group have shared great edits. Here are a few of the many favorites:

This week the Photography Challenge continued with more dynamic depth of field photos.   The photo challenge is a creative way to reach outside the box, try a new technique or snap a photo you may have otherwise never tried. In addition to using your camera more,  you have the added benefit of the support of a large group of photographers who can assist you and give you feedback as you work on specific themes and skills.  We loved seeing so many great photos. Here are a few more of our favorites, but make sure to check the album on the group page for more.

    The photos from Abigail Hardy are amazing! I especially like the use of enhancing the sky – the outer space look is so much fun. What a talent!
