One Four Challenge – Nov Wk 1

Over at her blog, Captivate Me, Robyn has started this new challenge. It’s all about processing one image, in four different ways over 4 weeks.

As I’m not getting out so much at present I decided to take part to see how I could perhaps think differently about an image, play with some different processing ideas and see where it might or might not lead in terms of creativity.

This image has had the minimum of processing – the usual curves adjustment, some saturation, increase in definition of the distant ruin. Then I increased the blur on the foreground window in order that the eye would be led to the distant ruin. And that’s about it for this week….

Beyond - Week 1

Beyond – Week 1

In the coming weeks, I intend to be a bit bolder, and see whether I totally ruin it, or perhaps create more tension. We shall see!

  1. Hello Sue – so happy you’re joining us in this challenge.
    This is such an interesting image and I really like the way you have processed it so far and talked us through your thoughts.

  2. This should be very interesting. I’ll be watching 🙂

  3. Very nice image, I am curious to see where you go from here.

  4. This has a very interesting perspective. I like how you made it so our eye moves in the direction you want it to. I look forward to seeing your progress 🙂

  5. I love this photo as it Sue. But I have no doubt you will come up with some interesting transformations 🙂

  6. Sounds like an interesting challenge, might give it a try.

  7. I am so…, upset! I follow Robyn but never heard about this challenge. It sounds like fun. So far I like what you’ve done with this image. I will be following to see what you do in the next three weeks! I might even join in!

  8. beautiful Sue! Where is this?

  9. What an absolutely fantastic photograph!

  10. What a fun, fascinating challenge . . . . where to stop!!

  11. I’m interested in what everyone comes up with – I rarely have multiple versions of images – once the image set my path to processing that’s it.

    • Well, Robert, I don’t often do multiple processing, either, but I thought I would have some fun with this and probably totally ruin the image in the process! But it’s all information gathering – if nothing works, at least I’ll know what not to do in future……

      • Yes indeed – a learning process. I used to say something similar when I did tours of my printing plant for students: it is as important to know what you don’t want as it is to know what you do want…

  13. A good image to start with and it looks good, I wonder what bolder steps you will take.

  14. Sounds like a good idea. I like the original so I’ll wait and see what you come up with. 🙂

    • Well, this isn’t the original, it’s had some processing to make it a bit closer to what I saw….. But I shall be playing around with it a bit, possibly with some lary apps on the iPad, or possibly with filters…

Over to you...
