Thanks so much for the awesome response to last week’s RAW challenge.  Great to see all the different versions of the image and so many of you playing along!

I’m off on safari later this week so let’s try and squeeze in one more RAW challenge before then.

Here goes…

The goal for this challenge is to create a striking monochrome image without using external plugins.  You can only use your normal post processing program – Lightroom, Photoshop, etc.

The image we will be working on is this one so click on it to download the ZIP file.

So one more time, this is how it works:

  • Download this file.
  • Process it with your favourite software – no plugins!
  • The goal is a striking monochrome image.
  • Mail your final JPEG version of the file to
  • Stay tuned for the follow up video.

I look forward to seeing your monochrome version of this image!

Until next time.
