    OK I'll bite. I was going to keep this one for myself and work on it more in the future but lets see where this goes ;)

    Here is a small version of the original untouched RAW file . . .

    And here is a link to a full sized .psd of it (17mb look out!)

    Ah phooey, someone else did the cool black and white. =( Well since that's been done, I threw together a quick "old photo" style for it. *shrug*

    Okay, first off, I burned it in some areas, then I converted solely to the blue channel, creating a darker shade for the truck.
    Then, I pasted an orange(ish) layer on top of the image, blending it in the "color" mode and craking down the Fill Opacity to about 40%, giving it that sepia tone, then merging the layers.
    Then I copied it and pasted it onto itself, so that I could manipulate the top layer, which I did. I gaussian blurred it, then going to the layer blending again and turning the Fill Opacity down to 40% again, giving it the diffused effect. Then I adjusted the brightness/contrast of the top (blurred) layer for a little extra snap.
    Then I framed it.

    Well while I was uploading my pics I see someone else already loaded a pic up. Ah well here's mine anyway for people to fix up.

    I was actually in the middle of doing this when I saw this thread and I thought this pic could help a few people practise cloning etc. I remember how freaked out about cloning I was when I first started PSing - mainly coz I was so bad at it.

    I planned on getting rid of the couple of the right side and also the building on the horizon and maybe one or two of the 'live' trees. And I don't know what to do about the fact that this cemetary was on a hill. It looks a little strange in this crop because the horizon is slanty - but in the original pic it looked like it was just on a hill. I'll post the original photo up in a minute.

    Here's a preview-Jpeg

    You can download a larger jpeg here (174KB) (sorry no RAW) http://www.ribbons.org.au/temppics/WarMemItaly.jpg

    And here's the original photo before I cropped it (262KB)

    Have fun!

    Oh boy, Oh boy, Oooo boy, I am really going to enjoy this thread :cheer:

    Good picture Canon Fan. A very generous offering I might add. Your conversion is very good. In fact all the post processing looks great. Appreciate the narrative of your process Kent. :thumbup:

    My pathetic attempt...I just wanted to try and go for something different with it, sort of a charcoal drawing/old lookin photo effect. I'm gonna continue playing with it though, but here's what I've come up with so far, oh and thanks for posting a pic Canon Fan, it was a great one to start with :)
