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.
For the last few editions of the One Four Challenge I have been editing close up and macro shots and I felt it was time present a landscape image. Although the orientation is portrait this is still a landscape of the city I live in. Lodz as I have mentioned before is a city that is rising from the ashes and part of that is renovation and the other part is removing what can not be saved. This shot was taken in a brown area of what was once a tenement block, now used as a carpark. I noticed the armchair sat in the middle and it intrigued me. It is as if the block has been removed around the armchair but the armchair remains.
I edited the picture in Lightroom using the merge to HDR function. Although the HDR you get is more an exposure fusion the latitude you have in editing is amazing. I mostly worked with the localized adjustments editing each area separately. Mostly I was pushing the clarity, shadows and highlights to really get all I could from the picture.
I think this will be an interesting picture to edit over the month, I have a few ideas in mind that are really quite fun.
I would love to know what you think and any comments you or ideas you have.
