One Four Challenge – Dec Wk 3

The third week of the December One Four Challenge….Robyn’s challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks

I haven’t had much inspiration at all for this (too many stressful life events lately), and faffing around on the iPad in frustration, I got a painterly effect which is quite vibrant, so this is my effort for this week! And I think there is a progression from stark to colourful over the weeks….so it remains to be seen where I can go with it next week!

Next year, I want to try extending my photographic post-processing skills, but right now a little relaxation playing with apps seems to be what works for me! This was created primarily using iColorama on my iPad.



Here are week’s 1 and 2 for comparison:

Is this what I really saw?

  1. Your versions look great! 🙂

  2. Lovely Sue, Im tossing up between Week 2 and 3… will wait until after Week 4 to have a better look. I definitely love the colour in this weeks 🙂

  3. I am really loving week 3 Sue. 🙂

    I always start out knowing what I’m doing with each of my shots. Then there comes a point where I just start playing with sliders and presets and art is created. Well, I call it art. Others might not be as complimentary! But that’s the fun of it. I really like what you’ve created here and have no doubt that you’ll come up with something to finish the challenge off with. Good luck!

    • Many thanks, Emilio…. I started by knowing where I was going with this, and then, well, lost it a bit! But I’m just going to keep experimenting with fun stuff!

  5. Im loving week 3 as well Sue – lovely the painterly approach 😃

    This week the focus is really on the leaves 😀 i like the slightly blocky modern style of the paint effect, nice job

  7. Beautiful! I love how the leaves pop out!

  8. The yellow really grabs the eye this week, and I like the background, giving it an effect as if the distance is unclear, as if there was a haze or fog.It will be interesting to see what you decide to do next week.

  9. this version is lovely…

  10. I’m glad you put them all here too compare. And especially glad that you’re relaxing and playing with apps when things around you are…a bit crazy? I can relate! It’s nice the way background & foreground shift here.

    I love the effect you have created here – creative play is the best kind of play there is. Learning the iPad is quite a task – I’m at the very beginning of it and feel utterly overwhelmed. Well done. I hope the coming week and the Christmas celebrations bring you joy and relaxation 🙂

    • Thanks for your thoughts, Suzanne – I am having a varied week, plenty of good company so I am hopeful of being nicely relaxed! Hope you get to grips with your iPad, I love mine…I’ve always found it easy to use and intuitive but I think I’m a bit of a techie ….
      Have a great Christmas yourself, and here’s to a good year in 2015 xx

  12. Very interesting what can be achieved with the magic of apps, the leaves are really popping to the fore in this version.

    I know nothing about apps but this experimenting has worked out really well Sue !
