Hey ya'll.....I entered this shot into a 24 hour Speed contest with basic editing rules and came in DEAD LAST! Is it really THAT bad? I would love some ways to improve it or some comments on what I did wrong or poorly.

Thanks in advance! :-)

Hi,

I think you suffered because your photo looks washed out, and there´s a difference between High Key and washed out..

Not the best maybe but this was one of my try´s in High Key:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/22781/thumb/243647.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/22781/thumb/243647.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Bump up the contrast A LOT... it should help you get the image details you need.

You need shadows(black areas). Every image must have shadows, midtones and highlights.

I disagree. Check out this beautiful photo. Looks to me like only midtones and highlights.

It's not my photo, of course. It belongs to David J. Nightingale of the excellent www.chromasia.com He has the highest rated photoblog (out of a total of over 17,000 photoblogs!) on www.photoblogs.org

Check it out...
