One-Four Challenge: March Week Three

Here’s my week three edit for Robyn’s One-Four Challenge. This challenge asks that you edit the same picture in four ways over four weeks.

Week Three Edit

For this edit I opened last week’s edit in Camera Raw and slightly increased the exposure, highlights and shadows. I then cropped it using Photoshop Elements before opening it in FotoSketcher where I added a mid-strength vintage look with a low blur, moderate paper defects  and high sepia tone.

I spent quite a lot of time on this one trying out different ways to create the effect I wanted. After numerous hours of playing around in Elements, PicMonkey and several other random online photo-editors, I remembered that I’d downloaded FotoSketcher a few weeks ago. This was only my second time ever using it and I was quite pleased to find a drawing style setting that perfectly fitted my ideas.

Here’s the original and previous images for comparison:

I hope you like it. Any suggestions for next week’s edit are gratefully received.

  1. I like the grunge touch or texture on this. It adds atmosphere!! I always like sepia too. I also noticed his face more as though he is pausing for thought! I’m not sure if you saw mine this week 3 but it was a struggle that I think I might have overdone lol! But always a challenge!


  2. I do like the sepia look. As the Dune Mouse said, it has atmosphere — especially the clouds. It looks as if it’s raining out at sea and heading for shore. I’m hopeless at editing photos, which is strange, because I used to develop my own black and white photos when I was a kid (12-14). LOL Now I don’t even have a decent camera.

    • I wouldn’t know where to start with developing actual film but I really enjoy digital editing – though I’m only just learning how to do it! This challenge is a great one to join in with if you ever feel like having a go. I know there are several people who take their pictures on iPhones, so a decent camera isn’t even necessary. 🙂 I’m very glad you like the edit. Thanks for visiting.
