One Four Challenge – Nov Wk 4

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.

Here is my belated entry to week 4 of the November challenge. wanted to make this ruin a little brooding, sinister even..

Had a play around with SilverEfex, but I couldn’t quite achieve the effect I wanted….and as time is of the essence, and I’m fast running out of essence I will leave it at this:

Ruin Noir

Ruin Noir

And for those that have asked, here’s a gallery of the original image plus weeks 1-4 images for comparison…..let me know which one you prefer! Click on any image to start the gallery.


Whew! It’s been fun, and I’m off to decide which image to use for next month’s One Four….

  1. I like your week 3 and noire

  2. Tough to pick a fave here Sue. I think week 3 is mine.

  3. Love what youve done also with this weeks Nior Sue 😀
    Does look very ancient in BW – a great way to end Nov!!
    Im delighted to hear you say youve had fun 😃
    Looking forward to seeing what You choose next.
    My favourite? Number 3 grabs my attention first!
    Sleep well, or maybe youre up again now x

  4. Hi Sue, Version 3 is my favourite. it is rich in colour and mellow. And reading previous comments, it’s the one you worked on most! Chris

  5. Beyond Week 3 rings my bell, slakes my thirst, completes my panorama…

  6. I still like Week 3 best of all Sue.

  7. Week 3 and week 4 – can’t choose between – same image, vastly different mood. Excellent results Sue

  8. I’m going with week 1, Sue, but I like 3 and 4 as well. Happy weekend! 🙂

  9. I think I like week 1 best too!…week 3 being a close second!!!

  10. Suzanne

    Yes I agree – Week 3 is the strongest. It has a very painterly quality.

  11. A woderful processing series you did here Sue .. it would be hard to pick a favorite! 🙂

    Just catching up on the fun here with Robyns new challenge and love what you’ve done with your image. I like where you were heading with No. 4 because it’s a bit different, maybe didn’t quite make it but hey that’s all the more reason to try and see.

    • Thanks, Lee! I’m enjoying this challenge, and it should be useful in that it will get me to try things I haven’t previously and perhaps discover some useful tricks…..

    No 3 Sue I really like . As you say the whole challenge is a great way to try out other processing techniques on new and old images … and aren’t there SO many !
    I would love to spend more time and become more proficient with LR and Photoshop .. but I have to take it in bite size bits otherwise my head feels fit to burst , and to be quite honest- I plain forget all too easily :-/

    • I’m on your side with this…I don’t do a lot of intricate processing, and certainly forget all too easily! But now and again it’s fun to have a play, when time permits!

  14. What an interesting challenge this one is. Has it been going long? This is the first time I have come across it. Love all the interpretations you’ve done, I really like the B&W image it has a brooding feel to it.

    • Thanks, Pauline! This challenge started in November, and starts anew each month… I was trying to get a brooding, moody feel to the monochrome image, pleased it worked for you!

Over to you...
