Herewith, the second Digital Darkrrom Challenge of 2022.

A digital image editing/processing challenge. The rules are here. Please read them.

The basic idea is the challenge host provides a source image and participants process it to taste and post one or two entries. The host selects the winner and that winner becomes the host for the next challenge.

Here's a picture from a few years back in Stratford upon Avon, UK. Let's see what can be done with it.

Thank you to all who entered. My 3-2-1 preferences are of course entirely subjective.

This was one of my earliest snaps with micro four thirds. I hadn't figured out that you don't need to shoot at f9, nor had I considered taking it off auto ISO and I didn't trust IBIS. How times have changed :)

The peculiar colour and contrast was down to the use of a circular polariser.


3rd - @BosseBe - b/w
2nd - @Zeus1 - extreme b/w
Winner - @kae1 - entry 1, for crop and colour

Special mention @betamax for the addition of the passenger jet which appears to be on short finals to the A439 with touchdown slightly north of the Cedar Lawn Residential Care Home. Kinky!

Your turn @kae1
