Photos by John Walkenbach:

John publishes one of my favorite blogs, J-Walk Blog. I read it at least a couple of times a week, it's consistently my best source for interesting web links.

Recently, I read this blog entry:

"Here's a link to some photos I took yesterday at the San Diego Maritime Museum. We got there early in the morning, so it was still gloomy. The shots would have been much better with a blue sky."

My first thought was to simply recommend some techniques for him to add blue skies, but then I thought this would be a great Manipulation Challenge. So pick a photo (they're all very good, but obviously it must be one of the exterior photos), add a blue sky or enhance the existing sky, and explain how you did it.

I know John is an Elements fan, so extra props go to techniques that can be done in Elements with no 3rd-party filters.

Here's the link to John's maritime photos:

Challenge: Add a realistic blue sky to one of these exterior ship images. Descriptions mandatory

Do your best, and post the results here using the following guidelines:
  • Make sure you're using the largest version of the Challenge photo
  • Enter your name in "Enter a title for the photo"
  • Enter the Challenge type and number in "Descriptive Keywords" (ie: "Photo-Art Challenge #501" or "Manipulation Challenge #132"
  • Include a complete description of the steps you used under "Photo Description". (You might want to write it elsewhere and paste it here)
  • Attach your file as an 800 pixel wide JPG file, compressed so that the overall file is under 200k (this usually means 60% compression).
  • Make sure you post to the correct Challenge
  • If you expect any comments for your entry, offer your comments to other entries

As always, there are no winners, no losers, no prizes, only a sharing and learning opportunity for everyone.

How you retouch and how much you retouch is up to you, as long as you fulfill the Challenge. Have fun, and good luck!

NOTE: As is the case for ALL RetouchPRO Challenges, there is NO expiration date on this Challenge. Even after other Challenges go up, feel free to upload your version

Everyone seems to be choosing the same image. Let's get some variety going!

Don't let me stop you from working with the image you want. I just didn't want folk thinking that one image was the one they were supposed to be using.
