One-Four Challenge: March Week Four

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 Four Edit

For this final edit I opened the original image in Camera Raw where I increased the exposure and clarity mainly, though a few other sliders also shifted slightly. I then moved it into Photoshop Elements where I gave it a tight rectangular crop and brightened the man’s face and top by selecting and adjusting the levels as on previous edits. Once this was done I added a black and white gradient map. Next I opened the picture in PicMonkey were I added a slight dark edge and a touch of infrared to complete the edit.

Now its time to vote for your favourite edit of the month.

Here are all of the images together for comparison:

  1. Hi Louise – I hesitated between Week 2 and Week 4, but in the end voted for your last edit. You can really see the man’s face well. Hey you know the last bit you did in Pic Monkey – the vignette & infra red touch – you can do in PSE?

    • I’ll have to have an explore and see if I can find them! I’m still learning my way around the program. 🙂 Thanks for visiting.


  2. BW was a good choice here, it was a pretty challenging image for you I think for these few weeks 🙂 Nice job and obviously lots of learning going on!


  3. Really like the mono for week 4 also Louise, but week 3 is my favourite!! I have enjoyed this image. Made it finally 😜

    • Thank you, Robyn! I’m glad you liked it. I look forward to rejoining the challenge next month – I thought I’d use April to catch up on my children’s stories. 🙂
