One Four Challenge – Nov Wk 3

Well, here goes for another week of this challenge started by Robyn over at her blog, Captivate Me. It’s all about processing one image, in four different ways over 4 weeks.

For week 3 on this image, I had no idea where I was going, except that I would play around with a vignette at some point. First I had a go at a few filters, don’t ask me what, I really didn’t make any notes! I do know that one involved a dual tone blue and brown, and you could rotate the filter to get bit to affect different parts of the image – this had the effect of bringing out subtle shades in the distant greenery. I lightened the centre part of the image, and topped it off by applying a vignette. Not my best, but I’m short on time so this will have to do!

  1. Very dreamy… looks like some fantasy novel book cover 🙂

  2. I quite like ‘this’ll have to do’ 🙂

  3. I love old ruins to begin!! I never remember either what steps I have taken but when done, it’s done!! 🙂 This is perfect. The vignette works so well on this subject!!

  4. Trust me, you are not alone. Half the time I don’t remember what I’ve done. 😀 The vignette works here, the focal point is even more accentuated.

  5. I really like what youve done here Sue 😊
    The focal point is of the ruins in the opening.. Then it takes me to ‘Beyond’. Very appealing!

  6. I like this processing best – the rich colours at the centre, the vignette, and the details in the old walls. For a “that will have to do” effort, you did pretty well!

  7. I’m not entirely convinced about the use of a vignette. I apply one, then remove it, then apply and soften etc. etc. but I think it only really works well on an image that already has a darker outline. Here it works well, focusing the eye on the ruin. I’m also glad to learn that I am not the only one who cannot remember what they did to achieve an affect!

    • I rarely use vignettes, Jude, because I think there are plenty of ways of leading the eye as you compose a shot….but I’m glad you think it worked here 😃

    I like what you did here, the vignette at the top is a bit heavy and obvious but it helps bring the focus to the ruins through the window nicely. Have you considered cropping the top bit off?

  9. I like this the best of the three, it seems to draw the eye right in to the image.

  10. My apologies for my ‘no-reply’ up until now Sue.
    I DID comment and WP sent it out into the eather… issues 😉
    Well I love it. Think you did a great job at making the centre of the opening the focus.
    I like the darker edges and the lighter more colourful centre. It works! 🙂

    “This’ll have to do”? Never say that. I prefer the work you’ve done on this version best of all but when you diminish your efforts with that phrase, I have to question my own taste. And I have enough insecurities without having questioning my own taste, too! I love the saturation and the vignette you added really draws the eye into the photo! Excellent! As for my opinion, this’ll have to do!

  12. I think I like this best of all. You might want o link all four in each post Sue, so it is easier to access them.

  13. The vignette works well esp combined with colour toning. Each week the image is looking stronger.

  14. This phase is very romantic … would be a great illustration to a gothic sort of poem/story as well … going back and looking at the other two just now, I have to say that this one is the best of the three … I like how the colors are more intense, warmer.
