I'm still open to suggestions on how we pick the winner, but please keep that discussion to the original "idea" thread.
Graham, how about treating the Editing Challenge thread like a big LFI (looking for inspiration/improvement). When you have decided that the challenge has finished, post an entry listing the names of all the entries. So far we have:

Graham - default from RAW (for comparison)
mik - dark theme
MJ224 (Mark)
Art Frames (Peter) - castle crop
Wornish (Dave) - B&W
Technician (Michael) - B&W
Graham - First Snows Of Winter
OM - Gothic
Shenstone (Andy) - nicer take
OM - oil/pastel
Greenguru (Rob) - Reflections
Gingram - B&W
PDK42 (Paul)
Cliff - Blue duo tone
OM - clarity
Bikie John
Graham - default from RAW (for comparison)
MJ224 (Mark) - sun rise 1 in red
MJ224 (Mark) - sun rise 2 in yellow
MJ224 (Mark) - sun rise 3 with radial brush
Wornish (Dave) - entry 2

Then each "reviewer" can cut and paste the list of names and against each one list the pros and cons of how they think the edit panned out, whether they liked the final result and how it compared to the original, whether they thought the processing would be easy or difficult for them, and if it was an approach they might try themselves.

No winners as such but each entry would amass good and bad points and there may even be a concensus on the best software to achieve a particular look.
