Ok!  Here’s your first What’s Your Play (WYP) assignment.  I chose this photo because it has a fairly even tonal range (histogram is pretty even) but as you can see, it needs some work.  It’s SOOC (straight out of camera) save for the JPG compression and resizing. So, download the large size file and work your magic!

Remember to link to your version by leaving a comment below.  You are welcome to add any specifics about what you did in your processing (software used, adjusted values, cropping etc) to help us learn.

I’ll be posting my play a bit later on so you won’t be influenced by my processing.

I’m looking forward to seeing all your plays.  You are all welcome to submit your photos to: play [at] dolcepics [dot] com if you’re willing to allow others to get their digital hands all over them!
