The one four challenge is where you take one picture and over a month each week edit the picture in a different way. At the end of the month you have four different images and four different interpretations of the image. You can read more about the challenge here.
This week I decided to take my spring picture and create the obligatory monochrome edition for the One Four Challenge.
I used my own Daguerreotype black and white preset in Lightroom to create a base for my image. This preset is quite heavy on the shadows and I had to brighten them. At the same time, I used the gradient tool to soften the highlights on the right. I finally sharpened and cropped the image.
What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
