One Four Challenge: May Week 3

Here is my (somewhat late) post for week 3 of the May One Four Challenge – how can it be week 3 already? Hosted by Robyn over at her blog, Captivate Me, this is all about processing an image in four different ways over 4 weeks.

Last week I played about with a sketch app, this week I have gone for a monochrome conversion, still looking for the grungy, slightly seedy. I used Silver Effex Pro, starting with the Wet Rocks preset and tweaking a bit. As I’ve been asleep since I did it I am unable to tell you exactly what I did, other than finish off with a slight vignette. I think there’s a bit of the Film Noir about this – Alain Delon is surely lurking in the shadows just out of shot….

  1. Definitely more effective than the colour shot Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. week three is my favorite

  3. Better late… and always great! love the monochrome!! It gives such a timeless feel!

      Oh, Cybele – what a lovely comment! I like the point about a timeless feel – but I’ld need to take the modern looking bike out!!

  4. I’m actually rather keen on week one!

  5. Some great interpretations and different images, wonderful Sue.

  6. Your best one yet in my eyes, Sue! Plenty of detail.

  7. I think this scene really needs the monochrome to enhance the seediness. It brings out the detail, that graffiti and the rubbish lying in the gutter. This image seems sharper so it gets my vote…

  8. these are really good.
    I love the b&w one.

  9. Oh, Alain Delon! Those were the days 🙂 Although I was very much a Paul Newman girl.

  10. These are gorgeous Sue. I love the black and white.

  11. A beautiful street scene Sue. I like the film noir feel you have achieved here, but week 1 is my personal pick as well.

  12. Ah this is fabulous Sue and my favourite so far 😃 Every little detail shines in this version. Love it!
    The weeks are flying, aren’t they?!

  13. Week three and the black and white feels most natural for me. Black and white with street photography a classic mix.

  14. yes, “…a bit of the Film Noir about this…” it seems that Alain Delon (or James Dean?) is strolling there around…
