Fix It - Mengkuang Dam

Last Sunday, some of us went to Mengkuang Dam to photograph the scenery at Mengkuang Dam. Unfortunately, the weather was bad when we reached there. It was a long journey and so we decided to stay and try to get the best out of the bad weather.

By referring to these threads;
1. http://www.shutterasia.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28373
2. http://www.shutterasia.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28385
3. http://www.shutterasia.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28375
4. http://www.shutterasia.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28377

I am wondering what other outputs can be produced based on the given circumstances by other people. So, I've decided to post up one of the original photo that I took. Here it is.



You can download the high-resolution (4288 x 2848) file here.

These are my versions.

Color version
mengkuang_dam_2.jpg

B&W version
mengkuang_dam_bw.jpg


Feel free to come out with your own version from the given photo. I'm expecting something that have WOW! or OOMPH! factor; something different from what I've produced.


So, go on. Squeeze that creative juice of yours for this 'challenge'. Good luck!
