Welcome to the inaugural post processing challenge!So what is the post processing challenge: It a challenge between two Kentucky based photographers, where each month both photographers will process the same picture and then ask for the you to vote for the winner. The picture each month will be taken by one of the photographers and both will process the same picture; putting their own unique spin on the picture.
The winner will be determined at the end of each month and the challenge will run for 12 months. At the end of the 12 months we will reveal who the winning processor was each month. That's right, the winning image will be announced at the end of each month, but the winning processor will not be announced until the end of the 12 months.
Time to meet the photographers: As mentioned before the two photographers are based in Kentucky. So lets meet the first photographer!
