One Four Challenge- June Week 4

Well, here we go for Week 4 of the June challenge! The One Four Challenge is hosted by Robyn over at her blog,“Captivate Me”, this is all about processing an image in four different ways over 4 weeks. This month, I am working with another photograph I have taken of two old books found in my loft recently.

For this week, time is short so I’ve done a quick bit of editing. Initially I had a look at some filters in PS Elements, and used a solarisation one, didn’t like the look of that and proceeded to edit this transformation further in an app called Glaze on the ipad..this is the amateur oil painting result:

    I think week two…the texture in week 4 is interesting, but the blossoms seem to be less defined. Love old books!!!

  2. Created nice texture which added to the “feel” of the books being old

  3. Wonderful. I loved them all. Thank you dear Sue, love, nia

  4. For me it’s a toss up between weeks two and three but I’m leaning towards two. Week 4 obliterates the writing, which I miss.

  5. This book is a photographic treasure trove Sue. I am really enjoying these images.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Still week 1 for me! The softer light seems more appropriate to the age of the subject to my eye 🙂

  7. The dignity of the elderly books forces me to select number one, which is more authentic. That one honors the longevity of them.

    Great images and edits Sue. Love June Week 2. 😀

  9. Hi Sue, I too prefer week 1 and the gentle edit, in keeping with the age of the book. What a nice image to work on!

  10. Week 2 is hands down my favorite edit of yours. It perfectly captures the mood and the whole vintage feel. I love old books, so having the texture hide the writing was not appealing to me. I love the composition of your photo and I think week 2 highlights that the best!

  11. I love these so much.

  12. Actually I really like this week’s result Sue 🙂
    It puts me in mind of the old Dutch Still Life paintings.. I think it’s very effective.
    Very hard to choose a favourite as I think they all work in their own way. Perhaps I’m drawn to weeks 2 and 4 the most?
    I think you’re very good at Still Life – I know I need to do a huge catchup on your blog 🙂

  13. Its a toss up Sue between Week 1 and 2, I love the detail and depending on my mood the darker one and sometimes the lighter one… can I vote for both 🙂

  14. The texture is really lush in this weeks image. Out of the whole series week two is the strongest image.

    I like version 2 Sue . I wonder how else you might use this lovely antique book , I’m sure you’re not finished yet with ideas even if this challenge is finished !

  16. Well, I like the original and so I like week one which just emphasises the text just a little. But I also like the sketched look of week three as I can imagine that as a book illustration. Not sure you can go wrong with this Sue as it is such a beautiful composition in the first place. You arranged your subject(s) well. And the flowers were a touch of genius.

  17. I loved all these and so hard to choose. You really grabbed my imagination with this wonderful subject!

  18. I’ve loved this image and all your edits over the month but week 2 is my favourite. I love the sense of age to the books. 🙂

  19. You have done so well with all these edits Sue and each one is good. I do like the sketch one, I personally like pencil/ink drawing, and the last one is very different that I like it for your imagination in the process. I wonder if there was any way that an overlay of the writing could be added and the opacity altered so the texture shows through? What a great subject those books are and the edition of that flower is inspirational.

      Thank you, Pauline! And I’m sure a text layer could be added on the week 4 one, but not something I have time to work out at the moment…. 🙂

  20. I think I like both the original and week 1’s subtle ‘extra’ aging the best but this week’s one looks like it’s been printed on hand-made paper; the texture is so rich I just want to touch it…

  21. I went for week 1, Sue.
