Forgotten Shed (One Four Challenge – Week 4)

Here we are already at week four of the One Four Challenge from Robyn of Captivate Me. For this challenge you select one of your own images then each week for four weeks, process this same image but in a different way.

For this last week I was curious to see how, or if, I could change this landscape photo into portrait successfully. I then decoloured the photo to give it an “old-world” feel and being me, tweaked the contrast to emphasize the colour there was.

Okay, so here is my original photograph and the previous three weeks of processing this image in different ways.

As always, I have a love/hate relationship with this challenge, I love how it pushes me to think outside the box but hate how it makes me really, really think. Now I’m off to find next month’s photo – told you, it’s a love/hate relationship, lol! 🙂

Forgotten Shed (One Four Challenge – Week 3)

With the end of another week, it’s time for week three of the One Four Challenge from Robyn of Captivate Me. For this challenge you select one of your own images then each week for four weeks, process this same image but in a different way.

This week I severely cropped the photo around the one little window that was only just visible on the side of this structure whilst adjusting the contrast to add some depth.

Here is my original and the previous two weeks of processing this image.

This window is not very apparent when you first look at the shed as it’s all but covered with the vegetation hence my desire to shed a little light on it. This editing probably would have made a lot more sense if the window was ornate or there were body parts hanging from it yet it still intrigued me.

Forgotten Shed (One Four Challenge: Week 1)

School is back in for the children next week and I’m so looking forward to it if only for routine. Today sadly I totally missed Stacy’s One Photo Focus over at Visual Venturing with a great capture by  Benjamin Rowe of Aperture64. Dang it!

And now I realize I’ve almost missed the One Four Challenge. Then again, technically I haven’t missed it as really it’s a Monday thing, but Monday doesn’t really work for me hence I’ve made it a Friday thing. Anyways, here ’tis.

This is what appears to be an old shed, or may have even been a small caretakers house, once connected to the railway. With only freight coming in by rail now, this building now stands abandoned, slowly being encased by trees.

The editing this week was all very neat and simple as all I did was crop, boosted the contrast to give it more depth, finishing off with a hint of vignetting. Just hope I haven’t used up all my party tricks now on Week 1!
