One Four Challenge – Feb Wk 3

A late post for week 3 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 taken my image of the ruined Brighton West Pier and given it a sepia look. I have used Nik Silver Efex, chosen the Fine Art preset and tweaked a few of the settings to get the effect I was after. I can’t be more precise as I didn’t make notes as I was doing it!!


For more on this challenge, see Robyn’s blog here.



  1. Love this photo of this intriguing place but also the technique you’ve used. Interesting!

  2. I love this.. 🙂 BTW I have been playing with iColorize recently.. Lots of fun effects.

  3. Sepia worked very well here Sue, and gives the shot a late Victorian feel. The best yet for atmosphere, I think.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Great edit, Sue. Perfect for the old pier. 🙂

  5. Love the sepia effect Sue 🙂

  6. This is really lovely Sue! Excellent Job!

  7. Nic

    After looking up the Brighton West Pier on Wikipedia, I think this version really suits the subject. Nice edit! 😀

  8. Sue, I think this works so well with your image. Takes me back. 😀

  9. Perfect choice with sepia – this one I could easily have on my wall. In the livingroom. By the window. Ahh.

  10. The processing fits perfectly to the subject, gives this aura of old days when boardwalks were one of the main attractions in cities like Brihgton (and maybe still is today, though).

    • Thanks, Otto – I thought the processing was apt for this subject, as Piers were a Victorian creation, and I think it gives a turn of the century (19th to 20th) feel to the photograph.

  11. That one is perfect Sue, fits in with the era of the pier. I don’t know how you are going to cap this one…

  12. Really nice edit this week. I think this has the most historical look to it, I can see this in a museum exhibit or a history book. Well done! 🙂
