Joining in with the Weekly Challenge

On the afternoon this image was taken (in October last year) – there was a stillness and beauty about the end of the day..

The weather had changed.  An inversion layer brought misty air, which carried the last of the sunlight upon it’s particles..

Tiny insects flitting around, sparkling in the sunlight.. and the sun’s rays making all things ordinary, beautiful for a few fleeting moments..

..and then, the day was done.

One Four Challenge Final – Nov Week 4

Hello and welcome to the final week of the One Four Challenge…

I’m very much looking forward to seeing the final images this week for our challenge..

This month (and this week) is our last and final challenge for the One Four. We’ve had such a great run for two years.. It’s been a fantastic learning curve and good fun – not to mention the wonderful community of people who have participated over these 2 years.. Thank you all.

This week, I went back to my week 1 image and was looking to create a Black and White style that suited this image.. I was thinking ‘old’…

I tried many things but didn’t find the B&W that I wanted, so decided to go with a Matt version. I think it still gives the old feel that I was looking for..

Here is week 4.

I tried many different things, so I don’t remember my steps this week… I worked in Lightroom again and am always learning new things, which is awesome. What a fantastic platform!

Here is my gallery of images for November..

Well here we are at the very end of our Challenge – what a great ride and wonderful learning curve it’s been! So much learned along the way and so much inspiration from each and every one of you who has participated… You’ve made it awesome!!!

Thank you so much!!  The best part for me has been making the wonderful blogging friends along the way…

I look forward to this final week and seeing your images… and then seeing what you do next.  See you on the blogs!!! 😀

One Four Challenge 2016 – November Week 3

Welcome back to week 3 of November’s One Four Challenge…

Just a quick post from me for this Monday. I hope you’ve had a great week and found some inspiration for your image.

November is going to be our last and final challenge for the One Four. We’ve had such a great run for two years, but it’s time for a break.. and to focus on other things… (I’ll still be blogging here..) It’s been a fantastic learning curve and good fun – not to mention the wonderful community of people who have participated over these 2 years.. Thank you all.

Let’s fully enjoy this month and inspire each other 😀

My Image:

This week, I moved over to the iPad for the first part of editing my image. I went into iColorama (app) and used the glass effect. I chose ‘bubbles or circles’ and I liked the overlay it created. I brushed out some of the effect for the flowers to poke their heads through 🙂

Then I went into Photoshop and added a soft gradient and some whimsical lavender heads with the tablet.

Here is my week 3 effort… A bit of an adventure.. and around the world this week too!

one-four-challenge_week3_nov-16_robyngosbyAfter that it was into Lightroom to watermark and while I was there, I hovered (accidentally) on a Light leak preset and decided I liked it.

Here is a gallery of the images so far..

We’ve had some very stormy weather this week, so I haven’t been around much, plus I was out and about this week a fair bit too… which is always a nice change. Will do some blog reading very soon.

Looking forward once again this week to seeing the editions and the treatments of your images.
