One Four Challenge- November wk. 3

Arcata Community Forest, Arcata CA

Week 3, I have played and dabbled with this image and learned a lot in the process. I think I really like the additions, although maybe I went overboard. Not sure yet, what I will do for next week. There are possibilities of course. If you see something in this image that is popping out at you, I am all ears. I really am very new to reworking an image. I usually work on it, let it sit, work a bit more and then leave it…never to touch-up again. (more…)

One Four Challenge– November wk.1

Robyn Gosby, at Captivate Me is hosting a new challenge called the One Four Challenge. The way it works is, I choose an image that I want to work on for four weeks. I process the image over that span of 4 weeks, 4 different ways. At the end of the four weeks, you (my readers) will have the chance to vote on your favorite image. Of course, I will link this post each week to Robyn’s blog where you can find her entry each week as well as all the other participants work.

I wanted to take part in this challenge for a couple of reasons. One, because I know I will learn a lot. Robyn, is a remarkably talented photographer and I really like how she processes her images, so I know I will learn from her as well as other participants. Two, because I am very new to photography, as an art form, and this is how you grow, by challenging your comfort zone. And, three, I really hope to get some constructive feedback on my processing approach as well as meet others interested in image processing too.
