One Four Challenge: May Week 4

Here at last is my post for week 4 of the May One Four Challenge. 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 created monochrome image, which was potentially the best of the lot. I don’t think I have bettered it, but had a play with some of the filters in Nik’s Color Efex that I have hardly looked at previously. The resulting image below was created using an amalgam of Old Photo, Photo Styliser and Ink…plus a border to finish off. Old, discoloured postcard?

And here is a gallery of the original and the 4 weeks of processed images:

So which is the best in your opinion?



  1. Nice try with the ‘postcard effect’ Sue, but I am sticking with Week 1 as my choice.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Just as well I can ‘parlez vous’ Sue.

  3. A great assembly of shots showing how different the same shot can be. My pick? The last one for its antique look.

  4. I’m still very keen on the sketch one but as t doesn’t look le a photo I’ll pick number 4!

  5. I quite like this post processing, it’s very eye-catching !

  6. They’re all great but i think week 1 is my favourite – I love the grunge look. 🙂

    • Sue

      Thanks! I liked the way that one turned out, but for me the black and white was even better…. But we all see things differently, don’t we?

  7. His Sue, The original–the red color-contrast makes the photo.

  8. excellent work and processing

  9. I have to say Sue, my favourite is definitely the old, discoloured postcard look, but I love the way you’ve edited them all, and the sketch look is great. So interesting to see how you’ve made one photo look so different. Love it 🙂

    • Sue

      Well, Sherri, sometimes I think I’m in danger of becoming a one trick pony, so I thought I would play the diversity card this time! Pleased the old postcard has a vote

  10. It’s a toss up for me between 2 and 4. Great work!

  11. I would have said sepia rather than distressed postcard, and that’s a favourite of mine, Sue, but I do like the sketch too 🙂

  12. All good in my book Sue!

  13. Hi Sue – I like your monochrome best, but you did well with the old postcard too.

  14. Please send me that postcard!! Bellisima!!

  15. Like them all but I think I prefer week 3. I do like the tones in your postcard edit but I’m not a big fan of photos with borders…but that’s just me!

  16. Well hard to choose Sue you have done 4 good effects, but my pick is 3 and the sketch comes a very close second.

  17. Love the b&w image, and the good old Vespa 🙂

  18. Yes a good week with the postcard style processing Sue! Actually it’s been a good month. I do like the mono – I think it is my fave. Nicely done 🙂
