This is my entry four week 4 of Robyn’s One-Four Challenge, which asks that you edit the same picture in four different ways over four weeks.
For this final edit I wanted to create a more psychedelic image, drawing on the slightly more esoteric role of mushrooms (though ink caps do not have any hallucinogenic properties!). I initially edited on the online photo-editor site Sumo Paint, where I equalized the colours and tones. I then transferred into Photoshop Elements where I added a slight diffuse glow before shifting the hue to green and increasing the saturation. Finally I opened the image in PicMonkey where I increased the temperature and added a slight blue edge and some faint radiance beams.
Now, with this final post of the month, a poll – which of the four is your favourite edit?
As an accompaniment to this final post I thought I’d share a few facts about the folklore, mythology and history of mushrooms and toadstools:
