Hi everyone and welcome to June’s One Four Challenge!
I know I kept saying it, but I really felt like the month of May just flew on past.
It was good to see everyone’s images for May – I always enjoy seeing ‘our choices’ for each month and this one will be no exception. Let’s do June 😀
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!
- If you are on another blogging platform, please leave a link in a comment on this post, so we can find you!
- (Note: if you are on Blogger – I will reply to your One Four post here on my blog, under your comment / post link. I am unsure why, but my message replies don’t seem to work, so look for them here please).
This month I’m going to try some experiments with light and surface to see what I can bring out of this image. I’m not sure why, but I find this image kind of curious.. I think it is the light and all the surfaces that grab my attention.

For this first week, my changes were fairly simple.
In Camera Raw, I raised Clarity and Shadows. Out in PS I added a B&W layer at 50%, added a Curves layer, then took it into Topaz Adjust to create a Split tone effect and a touch of HDR to bring out some detail.
That’s a pretty basic explanation of my process this week.
Your kind thoughts and comments are always welcome and appreciated!
Now over to you for June 🙂 Looking forward to your image and your processing 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.A bit about the review month/s
The review month will be a regular part of the challenge from now on. I hope you like the idea and make it work for you.. You can read more about it ‘here‘
This is how it will work – and this way we can plan ahead, knowing what’s coming up.
Please TAG with One Four Challenge – thanks so much.
