Last weeks edition of the One Four Challenge, was a moody black and white rendition. For this week I really wanted to take a stab at a colour version. I wanted to try and keep some of the moodiness, that I think for some made last weeks image quite special. I have always found colour a much harder medium to capture moodiness unless I add loads of contrast.
I looking at this image from the colour perspective it was amazing how much I actually exposed this shot for the sky. Most of the editing, like with the black and white version, was with gradients to add contrast to the clouds, open up the exposure in the sea and rocks. I did add a radial adjustment on the white building to create a highlight point to bring the eye through the curve of the image.
I don’t think the picture has the same moodiness as last weeks, but it feels good IMHO. I think I have balanced the tones well, creating a pleasant picture of a not so pleasant morning.
Also Julie I haven’t cropped this weeks version so you can see the whole image.
I would be really interested in knowing what you think of this weeks image.
