Vase of Yesteryear (One Four Challenge – Week 3)

Here is my submission for Week 3 of the One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me.

Vase of Yesteryear - Week 3


Having adjusted the colours for the first week, then changing the photo to sepia last week, I couldn’t help but wonder what the result of combining the two would be.

A mask was created over the flowers again. This time I adjusted the hue, endeavouring to bring out the pink in the peonies. A mask was then created over the remainder of the photo to change the colour to grey tones, with a vignette once again added.

Below are my submissions from the previous weeks for comparison.

Stylish Seed Pods (One Four Challenge: Week 3)

Oh how quickly the weeks disappear when participating in the fabulous One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn at Captivate Me. Here is my submission for Week Three.

Fur Balls - Week 3

The sepia colour from last week worked so well with this subject matter I wondered how it would look if I slightly rotated the image then cropped it severely. Have to say, I like it!

Snack Time (One-Four-Challenge: Week 3)

Here we are at Week 3 of the One-Four-Challange. This is the challenge where you choose one photo then each week for the next four weeks (one month) edit this image a different way. Here’s Week 3 of the deer in our back yard.

For this week’s editing the image has been cropped, altered to grey tones, slightly sharpened, and without doubt has had the contrast bumped up.

Now remember, if you aren’t already familiar with this challenge please be sure to check out Robyn and her blog, Captivate Me.





Morning Silhouette (October One Four Challenge: Week 3)

It’s Week 3 of Robyn’s One Four Challenge. It’s where we choose one of our own images, then each week for the next four weeks we process it in a different way. Hence… One Four Challenge!

This week I’ve slightly cropped the image, leaving only a hint of the sun at the top then had the image Reflected, giving the illusion the ocean water had pooled behind this mound of sand with the trees.

Here is my previous week’s images, along with the original, for you to make your own comparisons.

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.

1-4-3 - Crop Contrast

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.
