One Four Challenge 2016 – August Week 4

Good morning All!

I finally made it – I should have posted yesterday, but I’ve been feeling out of sorts with some fluey/cold thing and it’s slowed me right down.

I’m here today though😀

So here we are in our last week of the challenge for August and once again the month seems to have flown right by. Let’s go!

The challenge is hosted here on the blog throughout the year in Feb, May, Aug and Nov and… in the Flickr group all year.

About the challenge and how it works:

  • This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks OR taking 4 versions of an image at the time of shooting (eg. different settings, lens etc.).. and sharing them over the 4 weeks.
  • We will all  process / post edit (our own chosen image) and share a different version each week. Process it however you like… and tell us a bit about it. You don’t have to show the original image unless you’d like to.
  • Try new things, experiment.  Be as creative or subtle as you wish to be. All skill levels are welcome.
  • Links to my blog are welcome.

I haven’t had much in the way of creative thinking this week, due to feeling unwell, but here’s what I came up with anyway.

Once again I wasn’t sure what to do… so this week I took the image into Photoshop and added a texture layer and a pink gradient. I then messed around with blend modes and added some contrast.

This is where I left it, but personally I feel the image is unfinished, so I’d be curious to know your thoughts.

I began with my week 1 image again.

Here are last three week’s images again also:

Well that’s it from me – now over to you and your image:

Looking forward to seeing everyone’s efforts again for this final week of August.

Have a great one!!

Usually by week 3, my brain is thinking in Black and White or monochrome. I did try a few versions of these, but didn’t like any, so I hopped into Analog Efex 2 to see what I could find…

I tried a few things, but ended up liking the finish above – a grungy grainy, subdued feel with light leaks.

To achieve this look was very simple. I chose the Wet Plate camera in Analog Efex 2 and clicked on Wet Plate 9 – made a few simple adjustments and that is my effort for this week. Quite different to the last two.

I began with my week 1 image again.

Here are last two week’s images again also:

Well that’s it from me – now over to you and your image:

What did you decide for your 3rd edition? – looking forward to seeing everyone’s efforts again for this week.

Have a great one!!

This week, I didn’t really have a plan and my post is pretty last minute so I thought I’d start with last week’s image and then see if I could find a Preset in Lightroom that I liked. I settled on my own Gerbera preset.. I like the way it changes reds to pinks😀

Think I’m taking the ‘Fauvist’ route this week😉

I cropped a bit and did make a few other adjustments – but very minor ones.. Here’s how it looks. Now I realise this is not to everyone’s taste but the grainy pink kind of makes me smile. Something different. Actually I think they should make pink chillis!!

Now over to you. I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ve done again for week 2.

As I said a short post, but will ‘see you’ soon.  Have another great week ahead!

Flowers on Friday..

It’s Friday morning here.. and I actually have some flowers to share today 🙂

They are the only ones around here presently, except for the yellow daffodils that are peeking their heads above ground this week…

Today’s images are of the pretty cyclamens that I love having around each year for winter cheer.

This week went by so quickly – have another fabulous weekend!!
