About the challenge and how it works:

  • This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks OR taking 4 versions of an image at the time of shooting (eg. different settings, lens etc.).. and sharing them over the 4 weeks.
  • We will allΒ  process / post edit (our own chosen image) and share a different version each week.Β 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.
  • Try new things, experiment.Β  Be as creative or subtle as you wish to be. All skill levels are welcome.
  • Links to my blog are welcome.

My Image:

Still working with my ‘closer look’ this week – I wasn’t sure what to do next, so I headed over to LR and tried a Light Leak Preset (not my own this time). This introduced a Split tone feel that I wanted to explore some more. I like what it did to the image, so I added a few tweaks and took this in to PS.

In PS, I added a BW layer to tone down the ‘over the top-ness’ of the colour settings and did a touch of burning.

I also added a radial gradient to create a light airy feel. That’s pretty much it, except for a bit of fiddling.

I’ll leave this here for May: Did you know that Nik by Google is now available for free? There’s a link on my sidebar…(edit: and here is a video to show you how to access Nik.)Β 

You might also be interested in my first free Lightroom Presets – see this post.

So that’s it again for this week. Kind comments are welcome!

..and again, the visual story so far..

Looking forward to seeing your next steps and your third edition πŸ˜€

A quick post from me this week – my whole household is down with varying stages of the lurg presently. I’m not doing much talking – I soun’ lie ‘dis’… Take care πŸ™‚
