For the last few months I have been taking part in the One Four Challenge. This challenge was created by Robyn from Captivate Me; in the challenge you take one picture and each week edit the picture in a different way. At the end of the month you have four interpretations of one picture.
This month I have gone back to the summer when I took a picture of a flower looking down. I have previously edited this picture but was caught in the square crop cliche trap, you can see that picture here.
The picture went back to the drawing board. I first use the shake reduction filter in Photoshop as capture sharpening. The shot wasn’t taken with an exposure that would cause blur, the shake reduction filter is good for just tightening up those smaller details. In Lightroom I used the curves to create a soft cross processing effect and used split toning to control the colour pallet with greens in the shadows and yellows in the highlights. Some slight tonal adjustments, sharpening and noise reduction were the final steps.
I would love to know what you think of the edit, as well as any ideas you may have for future edits in this challenge.
