Hello and a big welcome to week 2 of our November One Four Challenge 🙂
Edit 11th Nov: Just in case you missed the Introductory post – this is a perpetual challenge – that is until we’ve had enough 🙂
We will do the 1st four Mondays of the month. Thought I’d better mention that, so be looking for December’s image too – Play along in the months you are able.
It’s been a crazy, fun week with lots of interest in this project – thanks for joining me – I think we’re going to have fun and hopefully learn plenty along the way!!
**For those still interested in knowing more about this challenge, you’ll find the ‘how to’ further on in this post. PLEASE READ the details -thanks.
If you’ve only just found the challenge and you want to join us – Begin with week 2 and move forward from here.
For my image this week… I decided to start with the base image I created last week. That wasn’t necessarily my plan, but I liked the progress I had made so far.
So to create this image this week, my additions and changes were:
– Curves to lighten and darken in areas
– Add a warm photo filter to take the sweetness (my word) off the image
– Sharpen and crop
– Add a subtle vignette.
– I did also experiment with taking out the bottom hearts touching the edge – but I didn’t like it. It left the seed head kind of floating in space. I read in one of my drawing books, that touching an edge creates interest and tension. I prefer it for this image.
I’ve had fun learning and experimenting with different things this week. I hope you have too!!
Here are my 2 processes so far. I’m still trying to keep it light and soft.
Now it’s over to you again 🙂 I’m really looking forward to seeing what everyone has done this week and how you have gone about things.
If you can, share your 2 images with us this week – to compare progress, changes, edits etc. It will be good to see the 2 together.
Did you start again from the beginning with your image? Did you keep going from where you left off like me? Are you planning a monochrome version or have you already done one? Tell us a bit about what you did.
About the challenge and how it works:
This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 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. (I’m going to show mine in week 4 along with the 4 variations from the month). Try new things, experiment. Be as creative or subtle as you wish to be. Each week starts again on Monday (Aussie time) and closes off the following Sunday (at the end of the day), so there is a whole week for you to create your post, link up here and tag your post.
Links and Ping backs:
Link your week 2 post to this week 2 blog post. This will create a ping back (link) from WP blogs.
