    Edit - I've done all 5 here

    2. London bridge. Bit of a creepy one this time with contrast.
    Done in Snapseed, I messed about with Curves, Retrolux (3) and Tune Image (Brightness, Contrast, ambiance and highlights).

    Shenzhen 1.jpg

    Tokyo tower at night 1.jpg

    All changes done with Luminar 4, compressed with IrfanView.

    Edit: Three pics aren't noticed as pics, I don't know why. First uploaded them compressed with IfanView, now they are compressed with Yaimco but it doesn't change anything.
    Maybe it would be a good idea to eleminate the old failures in forum and app before adding new.

    My entry for Creative Toning challenge:

    1) Chinese village
    Looking at the picture reminds me of the mystic hills with fog all around so I tried creating that look, giving it a more dramatic monsoon feel.
    Edited in: Lightroom & Photoshop
    Just added the clouds/fog effect in Photoshop!
    2) London bridge
    Serene evening with the sun about to set and London bridge in foreground. I just wanted to pour out some beautiful colors in the sky!
    Edited in: Lightroom
    3) Shenzhen
    A modern high-tech city with lights. I wanted a high contrast bnw look which brings out the patterns on the facade of buildings. Also gave a bit of a faded look!
    Edited in: Lightroom
    4) Spiral stairs
    Just experimenting with colors and created a swirl rainbow along the spiral staircase. This one is more of a creative edit I guess. I wanted to a raw concrete look of stairs, so just did a minimal edit.
    Edited in: Lightroom
    5) Tokyo tower
    Why black & gold if you can get black & red!
    Usually in long exposure (nightscape) pictures, we bring out the city lights which are yellow, but Tokyo having its own identity is it's tower. So red it is. The Tokyo tower is the main focal point, shining bright like a diamond.
    Also, it gives out an alienation vibes ha-ha. 😛
    Edited in: Lightroom

    Most of my editing is done in Lightroom only.
    Used: Basic tools, Tone curve, HSL, Split toning, Effects, Radial filter & Adjustment brush.
    Do hit like if you like my work, and also let me know your thoughts! [e]263a[/e]️

    Thank you so much, to each one of you. It means a lot to me. [e]2764[/e]️
    I still can't believe that I made it to top 5! 🙈
    Also, thanks to @Fleming F. for this competition. Cheers!

    These have been edited in Lightroom. Cropped into 16:9 to give a bit of cinematic look to the pictures.

    Hey everyone,

    So I'm a complete rookie when it comes to coloring and toning of pictures, so today I downloaded snapseed for the first time and went ham on these picture. I mainly messed up with tuning feature, tonal contrast and white balance. When doing these I kind of liked the blue tints, so I went with a theme for every picture and it's easy to guess what it is. I hope you guys like it as much as I do. Also looking forward to using toning features on editing apps more now and hopefully I'll be able to produce results similar to what others in this thread have posted.

    Thank you for this idea.
    I see here nice and creative entries. Really like them.

    I need to clarify one thing seeing them.
    You want to see just color and basic editing or also total processing like double exposure, stickers, etc?
    Just to be sure how deep go down to the rabbit hole.
