Robyn over at captivate me has come up with a cool challenge to edit a picture 4 ways called, One Four Challenge. The idea is that you choose one picture for the month, each week edit the shot differently and share it. At the end of the month you will have four different images. You can read more about the challenge here.
I was kind of stumped what to do with the forth incarnation of this picture. I had already used; Simple colour black and white and split toning processes, and since the image is quite simplistic any editing that was too aggressive was not going to work. While thinking and browsing through other images shot on the same day, I wondered if I could compliment the shot with more candles.
With this idea in mind I decided to give double exposure a try. I took a wider shot of candles on a grave, using a layer mask and the apply image editing step created a double exposure in Photoshop. I masked in some areas of the main candle so it still felt like the focus of the image. Taking a cue from the other images I converted the image to black and white and applied a softer split toning.
Now at the end of the challenge I have four images. It would be great to know what you thought was best.
I am also going to move the day I post my contributions of this challenge to Monday, the same day most of the other participants also post their images. This will mean there will be a new post tomorrow, but with a different image for a new month. It also means that on saturday I will be filling the slot with the image that would have been posted on Monday.
