Sorry about that, I remember it annoyed me when I bought the camera. So I hope you will be able to see and use this universal DNG (raw). tell me if it is still not readable.

As to the lack of colour I would only say it was 7.30 in the morning in February and cold ...and dark. I thought you wanted a challenge?

I have a similar shot a few minutes later taken on a Canon if you want to compare?

Re: Editing Challenge No. 4

Lots of scope for variations on the theme inspired by the original so here is another one: With Water

Re: Editing Challenge No. 4

Inspired by Invicta to copy his idea. But I cheated a bit.

I used an app called Reflect Studio from Brain Fever. Its free to use for 7 days so this is a free go. It is amazing what it can do with a few clicks.


To do it in Photoshop is certainly not as easy . My approach would be to copy the top section and then post it as a new layer. Then flip this new layer vertically and move the two layers to get the join where you want it. Then its a case of manually distorting the bottom layer with brush strokes to simulate water.

Be interested to learn how Invicta did it.

I used a plugin called "Flood 2" from Flamingpear. (Free trial period)

I then used a gradient mask to blend the water line into the grass so it don't appear as a harsh straight line.
