One-Four Challenge: September Week Three

It’s time for the third September edit of Robyn’s One Four Challenge.  This week’s edit is in response to Joanne’s suggestion that she’d like to see a black and white version of the image. I again began by opening the original image in Camera Raw where I made these changes: Temperature: +20 Contrast: -100 Highlights: -19 Shadows: -78 … More One-Four Challenge: September Week Three

One-Four Challenge: September Week One

After taking August off from Robyn’s One-Four Challenge I’m now back with a new image for September. The picture I’ve chosen to edit this month was taken a few years ago at Corfe Castle in Dorset, UK, and has languished in a folder since that time.  I’ve always dismissed it as being too dark but decided it would be a good one to … More One-Four Challenge: September Week One

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

One-Four Challenge: May Week Three – The Lock

Here’s my May, week three edit for Robyn’s One-Four Challenge. I wasn’t really sure what to do with this week’s edit so I spent quite along time just playing around, seeing what I liked. Because of this there were a number of changes that I’m not entirely certain of. Eventually I decided that I wanted to focus … More One-Four Challenge: May Week Three – The Lock

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. 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 … More One-Four Challenge: March Week Three

One-Four Challenge: February Week Two

Here’s my second edit for Robyn’s One-Four Challenge. This week I wanted to create a soft, dreamy effect. I began by opening the original in camera raw on Photoshop Editions (the first time I’ve ever explored this area of the program). I reduced the contrast, shadows and saturation and increased the exposure, highlights and whites. I then also slightly … More One-Four Challenge: February Week Two
