Hello and a warm welcome once again to the One Four Challenge.. and the 1st Monday in July.
I hope you’ve enjoyed an extra week this time around and have found something interesting to work with for July…
I’ve chosen something that I think will be a challenge for me this month… an everyday kind of image….
A quick reminder too, that August will be our next review month. Read more about our review months further down in this post.
Let’s go for July 😀
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!

This time around I was hoping to find something a bit different. I really do like ‘everyday’ images – quite often we miss them. This family of ducks caught my eye the other day – they were bathing and preening in the golden morning light. I stood for ages watching them.
They have such character – the way they walk and watch each other. I really wonder what they were thinking 😀

For this first week, I adjusted highlights and shadows and added some clarity in ACR.
In PS I added a Curves layer with a slight touch of red. Next was to add a touch of selective focus and a vignette.
I felt there was something comical and very disorganised going on in this image – it seemed to me they were trying to ‘get all their ducks in a row’..or not?
Your kind thoughts and comments are always welcome and appreciated!
Over to you once again – this time for July 🙂 Looking forward to seeing your chosen 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 our review months ‘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.
