Hello again everyone!!.. I do hope you’ve had a good week 🙂 Mine has been predominantly a working week, but it was productive, with fun stuff thrown in so that’s good… and I made time to work on my One Four Challenge image, so even better!

It’s great to see so many of our challenge players back again, after the break and some very nice chosen images too. So looking forward to seeing how we all process them this month.
I haven’t got lots to say this week… well so far..lol
I’m leaving the blurb below about the review month and how it’s going to integrate and become part of the challenge from now on. I hope you like the idea and make it work for you.. Some kept going with their challenge posts, revisiting and continuing with previous challenge images and experiments – others took a much needed break – the idea was to make the month our own, using it how we wanted to – it was great to see the different approaches.. and ideas!!
A bit about the review month/s
I think it was a success – I hope you’ll agree. What did you think?
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.
This is what I have in mind – and this way we can plan ahead, knowing what’s coming up.
- 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! We’ll try this until say, January 2016 and see what we think then 🙂 I hope that works for you. Your thoughts and comments are welcome!

Last week I started with B&W and going forward this week I decided to keep it fairly subtle again.. Kind of building up to Autumn colours – I think anyway..

I kept going forward from last week’s image.
I reduced the B&W layer in blending mode so that about half of the colour shone through from the previous layer. I removed the Red filter for this one and cropped the image. Using the paint brush I brushed out part of the leaf behind the main front leaf. It was too heavy for the crop.
I’m pretty sure that was all I did for week 2. Your kind thoughts and comments are always welcome and appreciated! I think the leaves seem to dance more now…
It always exciting to see our chosen images for the new month. It’s fun to be back and to see what everyone is working on. Looking forward to seeing your second editions this week 🙂
It’s also great to have some new people joining us again. Welcome!!
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!
Here we are at week 2 already – phew! Have a great one and have fun along the way!!
