One Four Challenge – Feb Wk 2

Time for week 2 of the February One Four Challenge as set by Robyn over at her blog, Captivate Me. One Four Challenge is all about processing an image 4 different ways over 4 weeks.

This week, I have gone quick ‘n dirty with my image of the ruin of Brighton Pier, knowing that I may be short on ‘me’ time. I have used an app on my iPad called iColorama which can sometimes work fantastically well if you want to separate out a single primary colour. Luckily for this, I wanted to create a monochrome image with the red Danger sign, so job done very rapidly. I didn’t have time for masking etc etc in PS.

I did consider cropping the image, but decided not to in the end……what do you think?

  1. That’s pretty neat Sue! I’ve never heard of iColorama. It’s done a good job. As have you. That splash of red works very nicely indeed. 🙂

  2. Great use of that dangerous red selective color 🙂

  3. perfect with that touch of colour to the sign. It’s such a spectacular image to begin!!

  4. Hi Sue, nice touch of colour with the red for Danger!

  5. Love this, Sue. Yes, that red for danger sign is a bit of added drama. 🙂

  6. I love the splash of red in the B&W image. Well done.

  7. Love that splash of red. A subtle eye catcher Sue.

  8. Just as I said your first edit brought more life to the photo I think this one gives it more emotion. This is spooky, haunted, and would make for a great scary movie or story prompt. Then to have that pop from the Danger sign enhances these feelings for me further. Good job making a good change in so quickly! 🙂

    Love what you did here with the BW and touch of red on the danger sign, nice job. You could possibly crop that dark shapeless thing off on the very RH side but it might cramp it up a bit much, hard to tell 🙂

  10. Yes that red does just pop out the danger sign. Great edit 🙂

  11. I never even noticed the danger sign in the first edit but it sure stands out now. The pier itself has a festive carnival/wedding cake look to it, and that red ‘danger’ sign adds an interesting note.
    Reading the other’s comments I think I agree with LensAddiction re: the dark blob. It’s another thing I didn’t even notice until it was pointed out but now I think it does detract from from the light-hearted feel of the pier.

  12. You’re decision to give the image a wash of color is effective. Nicely done…

  13. The app has done a great job in isolating the single colour. I like how this changes the reading of the image, making it a warning, Danger don’t go here.

  14. The red really balances out the picture. I’ve never heard of iColorama either.

  15. Use of the coloursplash in photos is becoming more widespread now. If it works well, and suits the photo, then it is a nice addition. On this occasion, I have to say that you ‘nailed it’ Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  16. Oh I love that danger mark.. it gives an edge to the picture… I need to check out that tool…

  17. Hm, I am typing my comment on iPad and still have no idea about all these programs you use. Nice work, that sign really stands out.

  18. Love the B&W and I’m curious about just what is that shape at the end on the right?

  19. That red danger sign definitely keeps drawing my eye back to it

  20. Hi Sue – finally made it to comment 😃
    This image has been drawing me in all week (Reader). Love that red sign and yes this edition does have a feeling of danger and uncertainty about it. I liked the spooky comment 😃 Im glad youre revisiting this one.

  21. love it … this is a great take … like how you brought the danger sign out in red! 🙂

  22. This is magical …. this with one color detail in a B&W – I first saw on London postcards and I couldn’t get enough of them … very effective. I done one with a Cola delivery van in Seattle … required a lot of work.
    Excellent image.
