One Four Challenge- Jan Wk3

Already way into the third One Four week of January… One Four Challenge is set by Robyn (of Captivate Me), and is all about processing an image 4 different ways over 4 weeks. I’ll have to get my skates on for week 4!

For this image I decided to go monochrome, and took last week’s version of the image, using Nik Silver Efex to convert it. Can’t now remember the preset I used (!), but I played about with the curves a bit to add a bit more drama, then used a white vignette and to finish off, a frame to give the whole thing a bit of an aged look….

January Week 3 Sepia

January Week 3 Sepia

As for next week, I have an idea, but it may well not come off….



  1. The aged look works well with this photo. Good job!

  2. I rather like that, Sue 🙂

    It feels like all our yesteryears this week Sue .. I’m looking through the eyes of everyone’s Granny sat in a deckchair squinting into bright sunlight trying to make out the little yacht n the distance … wondering if the tea is still hot in the thermos 😀
    Nice work !

  4. I love it Sue! Really very nicely done indeed! 🙂

  5. So many transitions in this edition, from dark to light and beautiful textures brought out by the mono. This looks great Sue! 😃

  6. it worked out very well, Sue, we love the moody scene!

  7. This one has worked out very well Sue, my favourite so far…

  8. A really breath-taking process … I love what you’ve done here!

    You did a fantastic job converting this to a more vintage look. I now have to go back to previous weeks to see what you did earlier!

  10. love the old grainy look!!!

  11. The aged look works great here, Sue! Can’t wait to see how your idea turns out next week!

  12. I agree that this effect works well. It ages the image even more than I thought in the previous images. Coupled with the ship in the background I feel like I’m back in the 1800s! This gives the feeling that the ship and the beach are connected, as in the ship and its travelers have just left this isolated island location. Great job with the frame too! 🙂

    Lovely, you did a great job on picking an appropriate preset and toning it nicely for the aged photo, and the image itself already had the grain in it. 🙂

  14. Great edit, it looks like an old photo from my family album.

  15. I do like B&W – works well here, Sue.

  16. or rather ‘sepia’ 😉
