Tallinn Tower (November One Four Challenge – Week 4)

The checkered flag is flying in the breeze, we are at the fourth and final week of the One Four Challenge being hosted this month by Photography by Nic. Being the last week I have done a little bit of everything with a little bit of everything.

First I dabbled in Photoshop, then it was a quick visit to Snapseed before returning to PhotoScape. And here we are. Where was this influence last month for Halloween I ask?!

Here is my original photo I took in the beautiful old city of Tallinn – Estonia, along with all my previous three weeks of editing.

It’s been an absolutely fabulous month. Hopefully everyone has enjoyed the One Four Challenge for November as much as I have. Many thanks to the ever patient and helpful Nic for hosting this month – it’s been a blast!

Tallinn Tower (November One Four Challenge – Week 3)

Week 3 of the November One Four Challenge hosted this month by Photography by Nic. This is where we choose a photo of our own then process it a different way for the next four weeks.

My plan this week was to simply alter the saturation. Then I began tweaking colours, brightness, and hues. I’d promised myself I wouldn’t touch the contrast but couldn’t help myself. And once I did that I felt some severe cropping was required.

Strangely, I really like the editing for this week. Some might say too much but I really like how it feel as if the tree is almost three-dimensional. Below is my original and the previous weeks processing.

Tallinn Tower ( November One Four Challenge – Week 2)

Here we are Week 2 of the November One Four Challenge being hosted this month by Photography by Nic. This is the challenge where we choose one of our own captures then process it a different way for four consecutive weeks.

For this week I’ve simply changed out the colour to monochrome, done a little cropping but have left the church on a slight angle, giving more emphasis to the tree in front.

Tallinn Towers (One Four Challenge – Week 1)

Another month, another One Four Challenge where we choose one of our own captures then process it a different way for the following four weeks. This month, Photography by Nic is hosting this challenge whilst Robyn take a well-deserved break!

So without further ado here is my image for this week, one of the many church towers in the old city of Tallinn, Estonia last year. For this week I’ve simply straightened the photo, cropped it slightly and of course boosted the contrast.

Church Spires

Driving from Moncton, New Brunswick to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island last month it at times felt like we were driving through the English countryside.

With church spires appearing like periscopes above the tree-tops combined with the leaves in their autumn colors, it was easy to think back to another time driving through England.

English Countryside in Eastern Canada

This was the first time we’d ever had a GSP in the car and there’s no denying, it was rather fabulous. Especially as Siri like to update us as to how long to our destination.

Certainly alleviated the need of such questions as…  “mum, how much longer?”
