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.
The one four challenge is taking a break during April. I am going back through the previous months challenges and reading the comments to work out what would be the ultimate edit.
I went back to the first One Four Challenge in November and my Candle With Leaves image taken on All Saints Day. From reading the comments it felt like what people liked was the black and white processing and double exposure, there was also a lot of love for split toning as well but not as much.
I started by creating a new double exposure with another shot taken that evening of candles on the grave. I added a high contrast black and white conversion to add some high speed film feel. I added some grain to add some more texture to the image and applied a very light split toning to add some depth in the image. The final touch was to use shadow and highlights to tidy up the contrast.
Also here are the original edits for the November One Four Challenge. You can also find all my One Four Challenge Posts Here
Let me know in the comments what you think of this ultimate edit.
