What a crazy fast month February has been – it’s flown by and here we are in the first week of March and once again, with the first round of the One Four Challenge for March!
Its so good to have everyone playing along with our challenge… I’m enjoying visiting around the blogs (I hope you are too) and presently I’m still catching up – as you know my time has been limited these past weeks – but looking through Reader, I’ve seen some wonderful edits and ideas for February.
Keep experimenting and challenging – amazing things can happen! 😀
Please keep tagging your post with One Four Challenge, so we can view your posts in Reader… and link up here too – leaving your post link in comments!
Review month for April
April is going to be a review month for the One Four Challenge – and not our usual editing posts. As with every other month, play along if you can.
The review month is a new addition to the One Four Challenge and our first review month will be in April – these are my thoughts on a review month and the options open to us.
1. We’ll post a gallery showcasing our work from the previous months.
Share a gallery of some or all of your previous One Four Challenge images on your blog in April – choose some of your favourite edits from Nov, Dec, Jan and Feb OR the months you have joined us.
2. Rework or Revisit some / any / none of your previous images. This is optional and the choice is yours.
3. You could use the review month as a ‘down’ month, just sharing a gallery and getting outside, taking lots of photos 😀
I’m pretty sure this is the option I’ll be choosing… I want / need to get out with the camera – Autumn is here!! ..April is Easter time and will host a Birthday party for my house as well!
4. We will share our One Four Challenge review posts, by linking up to my April review post and tag (as we usually do), so we can all find each other and see what others are doing for the review month.
5. Post whenever you like throughout April – weekly or once only. It’s up to you.
Presently I’m thinking that I will do one main post for April, where everyone can link up with all their gallery and review posts – and if you or I do more than one post in April, we’ll still link back to this one main post.
As April will be a variation on our theme, everyone’s link will be able to be found in one place (my post) plus Reader of course. Please tag as usual.
For now, it’s simply a reminder 🙂
Another image from nature for me for this month, although this time nature came indoors. I found this lovely fresh bunch of daisies etc., at the supermarket.. and they came home!
– Please click for a larger, sharper view
I started with a slight touch of Clarity in Camera Raw – then into PS and added another light adjustment layer of Curves (Red) and Levels and a light vignette – adding to the vignette already created by using a filter on camera. Lastly a teeny crop to tidy.
That’s it! Enjoying playing with bright, light and fresh again this month 😀
Kind thoughts and comments are welcome and appreciated!
..your turn again… and looking forward to your first edit for March this week.
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. This is a ongoing challenge. We will do the 1st four Mondays of the month. If there are 5 Mondays in a month – we’ll still only post on 4. Please TAG with One Four Challenge – thanks so much. As well as a link (to my blog post) in your own post – would you mind leaving your post link on my blog post too please – in comments if you could – this way we are aware of everyone’s blog posts. Thank you!
Have a fantastic week ahead. I do hope to do some more reading for last month’s posts this week. Thanks for your patience! Hope it’s a good one 🙂
