Hello everyone! The One Four Challenge is back for August… and all are welcome to jump on in and join us.
Welcome back 😀
The challenge is hosted here on the blog throughout the year in Feb, May, Aug and Nov and… in the Flickr group all year.

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 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.
- Try new things, experiment. Be as creative or subtle as you wish to be. All skill levels are welcome.
- Links to my blog are welcome.
This time around I’m using an image that I took back in January this year. The image kind of intrigues me, but the result wasn’t ‘too’ fabulous as I was asking a zoom lens to do what I usually do with a macro lens. Can’t help myself – I love seeing a closer view.
I do like those rich colours, the chillies themselves and the shadows. Hopefully I can find a pleasing edition (or more) working through these next 4 weeks.
To start – here is the original image..
..and then my first edition..
I made some adjustments this week using Lightroom. Just some subtle changes (I think).
I lifted the exposure slightly, adjusted shadows, highlights and curves. Added a touch of clarity, a vignette and reduced the saturation very slightly too.
That’s it for my first week in August. Your kind thoughts and comments are welcome 😀
I’m really looking forward to seeing your images for the week and your choices for August too.
Be sure to pop around the blogs and even onto Flickr if you like, to see what others are doing and to share an encouraging word or two 😀
I know you’ll be inspired. We see some amazing creations in this challenge.
Well that’s it – the ball is now rolling for August. Have a great week everyone!!
