One Four Challenge Week 2

Robyn G., whose blog is, Captivate Me, hosts the One Four Photo Challenge. We select one photo which we use for all four weeks of the month. Each week we photo edit our selected photo and explain our edits in our post.

This week I have taken the original photo and put it in Aviary > Scenery> Portrait. Next, I put the image in iColorama through Brush > Colorize > Blue (the water only). When I colored the water it also colored the white bubbles in the water. Next, in iColorama, I put the image through Effects > Flow, then Adjust > High. This whitened the bubbles and defined the duck a bit more. I am finding this is a difficult image to photo edit so it will be interesting what the results will be for my next two weeks.

    • Thank you Terri. I do all my computer work on an iPad with a blue tooth keyboard. Last week everyone told me my photo’s water was lilac. LOL! It looked blue on my iPad. So I tried to do it a little different today.

    • Thank you very much. I have to admit I was totally stumped as what to do, but from playing around with different effects and possibilities I was happy with it. (Hopefully it doesn’t look purple!) LOL

    • Thank you! I will be posting 2 more edits and on my last edit (the last week of the month) I will have a poll for everyone to vote for their favorite. Hope you will vote! πŸ™‚ (Hugs!) xo

    • Thank you! I am finding out that I chose a very difficult photo to edit! Especially so because I use, exclusively, an iPad with a blue tooth keyboard and my editing tools are not as sophisticated as those you can get with a regular computer. It will be interesting to see what I will be able to do with it in the next few weeks. Might be a major fail! LOL!!

        • I need your help. I have been searching and searching in my subscriptions for your blog (vailiantwarrior) and I cannot find it. When I put in the url it is telling me I am already following it. I need to find it so I can make sure I am getting instant emails from you. I need your post in my email so I can add it to my next Saturday Blog Introductions. What is the name of your blog? If it is valiantwarrior, why am I not finding it?

          • Your blog is strange for the fact that it is “Story Teller” and you are NatureLover and valiantwarrior. That is going to make it very very difficult for people to find you. You might want to do some changing there with either Nature Lover or valiant warrior. You might want ask Jen Hooks or Michelle Weber what you should do. For some reason your avatar for your blog and then for your emails looks like two different images. I can’t figure that one out.

          • Please don’t be worried about it. We will be able to get it fixed (if it even needs to be fixed-which I think it does, but WP folks may not). I think it will be a very easy fix too. Probably nothing more than changing your email address on WordPress or something.

  1. The water isnt purple this time around πŸ™‚ It almost has a watercolour painterly effect this week tho.

    • Thank you Stacey (Is it ok if I call you that?) I didn’t realize how difficult of a photo I had chosen to photo edit. I am finding anything I can do to this photo without it looking hideous is very limited. Also due to the photo editors I have access to on an iPad. Thanks for the feedback!!

    • Thank you! I am having a hard time making photo edits on this photo (I am finding out I chose a hard photo to edit!). It is going to be interesting to see what I can do with it in the next few weeks. ((Hugs!))

  2. It still catches the duck really well and the ripples are nice. I like how we can see the pebbles under the water and they look greeny brown to me, which really fits. Lovely, Joy

  3. PJ I really like your result this week. The water is wonderful and Mr Duck is very handsome this week. I like the highlights – they bring freshness to the image.
    Nice work πŸ˜ƒ

  4. I like the details in the duck this week, and the water looks more… natural. I like how you’re creating subtle changes, but ones that impact the image.

    (And going off-topi — I also notice your header is one of your images from this series previous month. That particular version was really artsy… πŸ™‚ )

  5. Nice edit… I like the greenish water better than the original (brownish) and last week’s (blue)… somehow it feels more natural and I could swear I can see the rocks better. And I like the bit of contrast on the duck, that is also sharper. I like this week’s best so far. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Ben. I tried coloring the water without making it look “fake.” (I’m just now learning how to color the water without coloring the duck. :D) I have no idea what I am going to be able to do in the next 2 edits! lol

I would love to read your thoughts...
