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.
I have decided to call week two of the One Four Challenge; Monochrome Edition, as I always end up creating a monochrome image. It took quite a few attempts to get the image looking right and I reset the image a few times while editing. The biggest problem area was darkening the sky while preserving the rigging of the Tall Ships.
I stared with a high contrast black and white preset and then reduced the contrast slightly. I started adding local brush adjustments to darken the sky, bring details out of the water in the harbour. I added a slight split toning to the image hsyt ti give that vintage vibe, but nothing over powering.
I am not sure if I really like this edit, it feels as if it is a bit meh. SO I would really want to know what you guys think, let me know in the comment box below.
