Hello everyone!!.. and welcome back to the One Four Challenge.. I do hope you enjoyed our April Review month 🙂
I’m feeling refreshed after a break and hope you are too ( although I’m currently battling the flu ) ..lol.. oh dear. April did turn out to be a very busy month for me, so I was thankful to take the break.
Are you ready for May? Hope so 🙂 Come and join in if you can!
A bit about the review month/s
I really enjoyed seeing the way people approached the month and I was glad to see others taking a break. I grabbed the chance to revisit one of my images and that was fun.. Going back with different eyes was great!
The review month was, I think, a success – I hope you’ll agree. As usual I have a bit of catching up to do with our challenge posts, but not too many 😛
I’d love to hear your thoughts..
One thing I became aware of throughout the break, was that others were feeling tired and I was too. We did 5 months straight! An awesome effort for us all.
With that in mind, I’d like to keep going with the Review month. Not yet of course – we’re back and ready to go again!!
This is what I have in mind – and this way we can plan ahead.
- May, June and July – One Four Challenge
- August – Review month
- September, October, November – One Four Challenge
- December – Review month
- January, February, March – One Four Challenge
- April – Review month… and so it goes 😉
I do hope you like this idea. I think it will keep us refreshed and the creative juices flowing!

For my image this month, I’m starting with B&W. To be honest I was looking for something that was ‘less of a closeup’ but that wasn’t to be this time around, due to limitations with the weather and my health (just the flu).
– Please click for a larger, sharper view
To achieve this look, I started in Camera Raw – raising Clarity and Shadows.
Next out in PS, I added a Curves Contrast layer, a Black and White layer, Sharpening and lastly a Red Filter layer.
That’s it for this week. Your kind thoughts and comments are always welcome and appreciated!
Are you ready to get back into the challenge? I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone has decided upon for their May image.
Lets go again!! Ready, Set, Go 😀
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 great week everyone… thanks again for reading this post.
