One Four Challenge Feb 2015 Wk 3

This week is week 3 for the One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn G of the blog:

Captivate Me

On the first week of the month we each select an image that we would like to work with for the month and each week we perform edits to our image. We then publish a post with our new image each new week and explain the edits we have performed for that week. It is a fun challenge learning to use photo editing tools. If you are interested in joining, please click on Robyn's link above.

This week I have chosen to use my photo from Week 2. I edited the photo using Aviary by adding the Effect/Sage, then adding the Enhancement/Portrait. These were the only edits I performed this week. Although I like the sky and the water appearing to be the same color and the foliage appearing thicker, I feel the colors do not look realistic.

  1. There is a place for surreal images πŸ™‚ Last week’s version was lovely in it’s realistic colors and feel. This week’s is pressing that mark and moving into art…like a lovely painting. Way to play, Priceless Joy.

  2. I think it looks great. You made a bold edit and it paid off! It has been fun to watch what you do with your photo each week. I see that your mentioned that you will be having a voting poll on your post for next week. Is that for people to choose which edit they like best? I tried my first One Four Challenge today. One of my dogs died a couple of weeks ago and the day before she died I just happened to take a bunch of pictures of her. (It was a blessing to have the pics) Anyways, I used one of my pics of her for the challenge. Thank you so much for doing all these challenges because it has really opened my eyes to what is available on WP.

    • I’m so sorry to hear about your dog. You are fortunate to have those pictures of her. I lost my big English Springer last March. He had a stroke. So, I wasn’t prepared and it about killed me. I still miss him.

          • I’m still learning, too. I’m actually more comfortable writing poetry than Flash Fiction. I love trying new poetry forms -especially Welsh forms :-). You are a great writer, PJ!

          • Although I am taking this Poetry class, poetry has never been my thing. My writing has a lot of room for improvement. It has been a long time since I took Creative Writing. I think you are excellent at writing Flash Fiction!

          • Thank you :-). I swore I would never write poetry, but about 2 years I started writing poems. It has been great in helping me to be more concise with my word choices. You did a wonderful job with your Haiku. I just finished my Limerick for day 2 of the poetry class I’m taking.

          • I think we are πŸ™‚ I’m a day behind; I just posted my a Haiku tonight. Limerick’s can be challenging. I’m still trying to get the hang of them.

          • Yes, I really did try! I was trying to write one about my cat. She went missing a year ago in October and it made me too sad so I had to put it away. But I tried!

          • That is awful!!! I don’t understand people like that! My cat MJ was precious to me and I would have been sooooo upset if someone had done that to me!

          • Oh yes, I was upset. I had raised her since she was 5 weeks old. Her mother was a feral cat and she had a feral side to her except with me and my 2 dogs. I called her my “special needs” kitty. She was part of my heart.

          • My heart hurts for your loss!! Pets change people’s lives for the good. Mine saw me through depression and addictions. They loved me through all of it and it kept me going. It’s so hard when we lose them – especially under unusual circumstances!

          • Yes, that is true. Mine saw me through horrible depression. The circumstances that led to her going missing and the people that did it is horrible because they were suppose to be trustworthy. They were suppose to be my friends. But I wouldn’t do what they wanted because of her. So they got rid of her. I am glad to you were able to overcome your depression and addictions because of your animals. They have a way to heal us in ways no others can.

          • It is so hard when people we think are friends betray us!! I’m sorry that you had to go through that!! My animals definitely helped, but lots of prayer played a major role too πŸ™‚

          • Congratulations!! I think that’s the hardest thing about overcoming an addiction, the aftermath. You end up having to go toe to toe with the underlying cause (wound) that mad medicated by the addiction.

  3. I agree, the blue blue on the water is a bit harsh but the important thing is we experiment and try new things πŸ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
