Jumping Joe – Retouching Contest Winner

Thank you for everyone’s patience. The time has come to announce the winner of the Jumping Joe retouching contest and who will receive theĀ Nik Color Efex Pro 4 software! I had a lot of really hilarious and awesome entries. As you may recall, folks had an opportunity to download an unedited file shot by my Phase One IQ160 and edit it however they see fit. You can read about the original contest details here. This contest is meant to be fun and humorous, so I chose ones that were lighthearted and showed some fun creativity. Thank you to everyone that entered! It’s great seeing everyone’s different interpretations.

The next contest will be bigger and better!

Entry by Justin Lane from the other side of the planet! (Sydney, Australia) It’s true, Joe jumps for joy every time he is in Vegas.
An entry all the way from Germany! I like your timely Wall Street theme! Good work Alex Schnieder



Entry by Tim Fraga (www.timssolution.com). I like this because the image really tells a story and truly reflects the real Joe C’s rebellious wild-man nature and his love of rollerblades! He used used Nik’s Viveza 2 and Color Efex Pro 4 Detail Extractor for this image.
