WWYD 179 Challenge - Try It Out! :)

February 6th, 2019
Many thanks to @mikegifford for hosting the last WWYD (What Would You Do) 178 editing challenge.

Onward to WWYD 179!

I am posting an unedited shot from Galway, Ireland. Lots of lovely reflections. :)

This can be edited in various ways... you can enhance it (don't forget to straighten!) in various ways, or you can go wild and do vortexes, put a boat on the wild seas, make it flow off of the edge of the earth, etc. Put a mini-me in there, large fish, whatever.

START DATE is today, the February 5, 2019
END DATE March 5, 2019
TAG wwyd179

For those of you that are not familiar with how this challenge works or what you're supposed to do....keep reading:

The WWYD Challenge will run from today through the 5th of March, 2019. Don’t worry about the time zone, just get your submission(s) posted by the end of the cut-off day.

Voting will take place shortly thereafter and a winner announced after a few days once the voting is closed. Voting will take several days.

So here are the rules:

- Save the starting image on your computer. NOTE: If you select the “Sizes” under the right-side menu and scroll down to the Original or Large option you can copy and paste to your browser or download.

- Upload the photo you edit to one of your albums and tag it wwyd179

- You are also encouraged to add your image to this discussion thread. Go to your edited photo, click on the arrow by your comment and fav numbers, copy the "embed" code on the left, and paste it here.

- Multiple entries are allowed.

- There are no editing rules. Edit the starting image any way you’d like. No editing software on your computer? No problem – go to a site like Picmonkey and upload/edit your pic for free. You won’t be able to use all the features but there are plenty you will be able to use.

Please use these WWYD Challenges to push yourself to try new editing techniques! If you’re just beginning work on tonality, colour control, curves, detailing, sharpening, gradients and other effects. If you are really just starting, try erasing the buoy lines or the car. As you get more familiar with all the editing tools you can add things like dodge and burning, layers, masking and textures. As you push yourself even more move to image extractions and full compositions. Remember to keep pushing and learning, and most of all have fun along the way!

Good luck to everyone and happy editing! Have fun!

@rosiekerr does anything further happen with this challenge?
March 8th, 2019
@koalagardens Yep. Now that the challenge is over, I need to focus in on the entries and pick finalists. Work is getting in the way. I’ll get to it in the next day or so, then I’ll post a new topic with an invitation to vote. :)

@shutterbug49 I think we need for @rosiekerr to announce the winner so that person can kick the next challenge off :)
