 Join the photo editing challenge! It will give you a chance to edit other photographer’s images, share them for critique, and see how others edit the same photographs.  Participating encourages 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.  Join us to edit the bi-weekly photos.  There’s one more week left for this one.

If you have an idea on how you’d edit the image below, or want to see and learn what others did, JOIN US HERE.

Thank you again to Ali Ellen for allowing us to use this photo.  The current challenges are linked at the top of the group. Remember, you can also ask for critique on your edit.

Thank you to everyone who participated; we enjoyed seeing your take on the challenge. Didn’t get a chance to edit this week? You still have an additional week to participate.

The photo challenge is a great way to reach outside the box and work hard.  You have 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. Make sure to check the album on the group page for more.

The team would like to thank everyone who submitted a photo for the challenge. Visit the the Facebook Group on Monday for a new Photography Challenge.
