One-Four Challenge: June Week One – Boathouse and Bridge

Its now June and so time for a new image for Robyn’s One-Four Challenge.

Week One Edit
Week One Edit

For this first week I wanted to keep the edit quite simple. I cropped it and used the clone tool to remove the remaining branches in the top right corner. I then used the levels adjustment tool to boost the shadows and highlights, added a warming filter and increased the saturation a little  to make the autumnal colours pop.

All edits were done using Photoshop Elements 13.

Here’s the original image for comparison:

This month’s picture was taken in Hartsholme Country Park in Lincoln (UK) last November during Photography 101. I used shots of the front of the boathouse for the architecture theme but this one, showing the rear view over the lake, was never used. The boathouse is Victorian, built in 1881 when the park was still the grounds of a stately home. The bridge is a much newer addition – it was opened just last March.

    1. Thank you. I’m glad you like it. 🙂 I’ve got lot’s of ideas for edits this month and I’m looking forward to playing around with the image some more.


  1. This is a beautiful place Louise. Think Id be dawdling, rather than walking past here 😃
    Bringing the warmth out and your subtle changes are perfect! Such a lovely scene. Looking forward to what you have planned next 😃

  2. Beautiful location! I am sure you will have fun playing with this view each week. The effect really did “warm” it up, very effective. Looking forward to enjoying this image this month.

    1. Thank you, Carrie. It’s a lovely place for a walk. It was once the grounds of a stately home outside the city. Its now in the middle of a residential area and accessible to anyone. I’m glad you like the edit. Thanks for visiting. 🙂
