I don't own one and have no intention of getting one, so I don't know what I'm going to do for this PFC, but I believe they look something like this:

This is gonna be awesome.
I mean, just look at this piece of crap
Equipment used: Nikon P5100
Settings: Uhm ... whatever the camera decided on. I let it think for itself these days.
Post-processing: Scaled the image and then I 'played' in GIMP. I played with brightness and contrast and thought about using some feature that made it look like maggots were eating the picture, but I didn't. I don't think I could specify exactly what I did, nor could I probably ever do it again.

2x4s? those decorative spindles you put in stair railings?
Hell, a generation of kung-fu movies demonstrates the broom handle as the ultimate hand-to-hand weapon.
Preprocessing: Take the T inbound from Alewife. Disembark at Kendall Square. Discover the inbound levers don't really work despite what you read on Wikipedia. Exit station, enter again on outbound side. Utitlize levers.
Take picture with iPhone, because I don't believe in cameras.
Get on train, going the wrong direction. Disembark at Central Square, exit, enter again on inbound side. Take train downtown, change to the Green line at Park Street, arrive an hour early to meet nanoscopically famous author anyway due to arithmetic failure.
Postprocessing in Photoshop: Rotate slightly and crop. After several unsuccessful experiments, manage to make the image greyscale and add some color back. Resize, save, and post.

While searching for something completely unrelated I stumbled across this poker blog.
Equipment: Canon 20D with 17-85 f1.4-5.6 IS USM lens and a Metz 50MZ-5 handheld flash. Shot in ISO 200 at f18 (aperture priority) to play with depth of field and 1/250sec, -1/2 stop.
Post-processing: Standard Photoshop clean-up filters: levels, curves, hue/sat, colour balance & bright/contrast -- all just to colour correct (using white balance card in a prep shot). I slightly desaturated to counter the high saturation of the camera settings, then tweaked the colour balance slightly into the blue/cyan range and dropped the brightness using levels because the Metz flash puts out a metric fuckton of light.
Final processing was in lab mode to de-noise the alpha and beta channels and sharpen the lightness channel, then a return to RGB to resize to 1024 pixels because even cropped the pic was more than double that. Unfortunately, this sometime drops colour somewhere so I had to rebuild the colour of just the 7D card with a seriously weird red curve which would prevent the enhancement bleeding into the rest of the card.
For those who feel I may have gone overboard on the post, the source pic is here (reduced to 1024x768; original 3504x2336 available upon request). Nothing but clean-up.
Camera: Kodak EasyShare Z812 IS
Post Processing: I cropped and autofixed it!

This piece, entitled "Midnight Home Repair" shows all the tools one needs for quality masonry work. After midnight.
Taken just now with a Canon EOS Rebel XT, with built-in flash. Cropped using xv. Acting credits go to The Balvenie, as itself, a masonry chisel from Home Despot, and a nice little sledge hammer. The whiskey glasses were a gift from misslake and ni.
Taken with ana's Canon Rebel XT, on the automagical settings. In Photoshop, I futzed with the contrast, brightness and shadow settings with the idea that I'd take the little "Loki's" whiteness down and make the whole picture a bit more red. Considering that I basically lose all artistic ability when a camera is put in my hand, I'm pretty happy with this shot.
