The Under Belly (One Four Challenge – Week 3)

‘Tis Week 3 of the fabulous One Four Challenge hosted by the lovely Robyn Gosby of Captivate Me.

This week curiosity had me editing to see what my ‘schroom would look like in the ageless sepia tones. Needless to say, it didn’t disappoint.

What was interesting after this edit of converting from colour to sepia was, for me at least, it felt as if I cropped the image which I hadn’t. The only other edits after changing the photograph to sepia, was to bump up the contrast and to straighten the image ever so slightly. Below are my previous week’s submissions for comparison.

Oh, and if you aren’t familiar with the One-Four-Challenge, it’s where you choose one of your own photographs and for four weeks you edit this photo differently each week. It really does makes you think!

The Under Belly (One Four Challenge – Week 2)

It’s Week 2 of the fabulous One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn Gosby of Captivate Me.

For this week, I simply cropped my photograph following the edits I did for last week. This was done to highlight the gills of the mushroom even more-so. These gills absolutely fascinate me – such a paradox being so delicate yet so hardy all at once.

A quick recap on my edits from last week. The photograph had been cropped just a little to bring the gills closer as well as bumping up the contrast to also enhance them. Then all I did was tweak both the vibrancy and clarity.

Below is last week’s submission as well as the original for comparison.

If you aren’t familiar with the One-Four-Challenge is where you choose one of your own photographs and for four weeks, you edit this photo differently each week. Sounds easy enough but doesn’t always work out that way, lol!

Snack Time (One-Four-Challenge: Week 4)

My goodness, this month has gone so quickly with this One-Four-Challenge. It’s hard to believe it’s been four weeks already… bawhaha. (I think we all know by now I’ve squeezed four weeks into two!)

Here is my fourth and final week for the One-Four-ChallengeAs always I’ve tried a little of everything and then some. I do so love this challenge.

For this final week I’ve cropped and brightened the image, then I’ve added a grunge effect and added a frame to give more of an old-world feel. Far too much I know but hey, for me that’s what Week 4 is all about.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this One Four Challenge is simply fabulous, it’s so much fun! If you aren’t already familiar with this challenge be sure to check out our gracious host Robyn and her blog, Captivate Me.

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.

Snack Time (One-Four-Challenge: Week 2)

What’s that you say? Two weeks in just one week? Yep, that’s correct, and if you are doing your math, I’m still behind a week as I think it’s actually now Week 3. So without further ado, here’s my Week 2 of the deer in our back yard.

With my image for Week 2, I’ve cropped in even more then Week 1. Initially I was hesitant to crop so much previously as sometimes you can lose the sharpness of the image but fortunately this doesn’t seem to be the case.

Naturally I then also bumped up the contrast to intensify the colours but at the same time I added a heavy vignette as I wanted the focus on the young deer eating rather than the odd vegetation behind it. Oh, and I straightened the photo a tad!

This One Four Challenge is a fabulous way of getting back into posting and more importantly thinking about photo editing and what one really wants to achieve from a capture. If you aren’t already familiar with this challenge be sure to check out our gracious host Robyn and her blog, Captivate Me.
