The time to submit a version has ended, and the voting is in progress in this Facebook gallery. For those who missed the deadline to post your entry, please keep an eye on the blog, there will be another round sooner or later :)
Thanks to Oloneo software I have for you another round of my editing contest. Again you get a chance to win a copy of their great HDR editing program Oloneo PhotoEngine. If you don’t know PhotoEngine, I really suggest you try it out, as it’s one of the simplest and best HDR editing programs available. You can also see in a lot of my recent photos, that I used it to create the initial blended images, as it creates a very natural look.
You can find all the information on Oloneo and their products here: http://www.oloneo.com/en/page/home.html
and you can find a trial version you can try right away here: http://www.oloneo.com/en/page/download_form.html?product_id=pe1&type=trial
(there is no Mac version available, but you can run it in a virtual machine)
I will also provide two copies of my Master Exposure Blending tutorial as prizes.
So when you are done playing with it, here is how you can enter the contest. For those who joined already one of my other contests, the rules will be very familiar, as they are the same.
How to join the contest
1. read the complete rules first :)
2. download the provided series of brackets showing a nice sunset at the Neusiedler see in Austria here from Dropbox
3. edit them into a final HDR photo (you can use any software and any technique, tone-mapping, blending, exposure fusion, black&white version)
4. join the contest event here https://www.facebook.com/events/1447780392128154/ and post your photo into the event or send the final edit to me, under firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “HDRshooter contest”
Only one entry per person is permitted. Please don’t use parts of any other than the provided photos. If you post your photo to the event page, you can delete your submission and upload a new one. If there is more than one from a person, the last one is entered, all other will be deleted. If you are one of the winners from the last rounds, you are not eligible to win.
The winners of Oloneo PhotoEngnine will be choosen by:
1st one by a jury of great HDR photographers, Elia Locardi from BlameTheMonkey, Beboy from BeboyPhotography and Dave Morrow from DaveMorrowPhotography
2nd will be selected by fans on Facebook, where everyone can vote for their favorites, once all the entries have been submitted. This voting is not in the event. Sharing of your entries further to promote them is permitted, but entries with fake likes will be disqualified.
In both cases the person who places 2nd will receive a copy of the Master Exposure Blending video tutorial.
The latest time to submit you entry is 18th May 2014 at midnight. The voting on the winner will be held during the week from 19th to 25th May 2014 on the HDRshooter facebook page. The winners will be announced on the Monday 26th
I hope you will all have fun editing and good luck to you all :)
I reserve the right to change or amend the competition rules at any time without prior notice. By entering the competition, entrants agree to be bound by these rules. All participants can’t use the final photo for any commercial use and have to give credit to me as the original author, also I will not use their versions for any purposes other than promotion of this competition. Participants can share the photo on their FB, blog, flickr or other accounts, but still have to give me credit as the author and link back to the contest.
