Looks like I'm going to miss this month. I got so far as to copy the image onto my computer. Never even got a chance to open it up. Too bad. Because there are a lot of beautiful entries and I'd love to vote. However, I don't just want to "throw something together" just so I can. Great job all who attempted this.

Ditto: Just didn't seem to have the time to get to grips with this months contest.

My apologies to Flora, who must have worked hard to find such a fiendishly subtle challenge.

Yes, I did spend a lot of time searching through the Prints & Photographs Online Catalog at The Library of Congress' site ... They have tons of great images to choose from...

...Well, I had actually found 6 images I liked for this Contest ... the final choice was a 'joint' one...

When this contest is over I'm going to post the other 5 ... I'd like to see if you can guess which one was the one I liked most...

Beth,

I'm going to update your entry in the Gallery right now!!!

Hi Everyone.

I would just like to say ‘Kudos’ to everyone who entered this competition.

I really wanted to post an entry but I tried and tried and got nothing worthy of submission. I even downloaded the 52MB tiff file hoping that would help but I have now got over 1GB of ‘tries’ and false starts. I even tried HDR on it.

I hope everyone posts their workflow on this. I am sure that we could all learn from it.

Once again, congratulations to everyone. This really was a ‘Killer’. I think you are all winners.

Ken.

Re: September 06 Contest Discussion

Hi,

I took at look at the jpg posted thought it was too small to attempt any decent restoration. After reading Cameraken's reply I realized that a large tif was available, so I gave it a looksee....

There is a face there! Still would need more work, but it was fun finding a face

Too late. Should have use the tiff file to save me the trouble. Spent more time fixing the faces than with everything else. Good exercise though.

Re: September 06 Contest Discussion

It would be nice to know just how many bent the rules a little, and got the tiff file Personally I stuck with the image in the contest thread, as that was the image offered up for restoration
I will get my votes in later today (fingers crossed)
