One Four Challenge – Week 4 – November 24, 2014

This is a fantastic challenge and I’ve been enjoying myself very much.  As we’re reminded by the host of the challenge Robyn at Captivate Me, quoting Neil Gaiman:

“Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here.”

Neil Gaiman

This is my last edit and together with it, I’ll be adding a gallery the first three edits including the original and  a voting box for you to choose your favorite take.   I’ve decided to go wild with this last edit and really let go:


With this photo I went back to the original cut and then gave it an enhanced sepia effect … then I decided to boost the color a little … at this point, the picture was kind of faded, so I sharpened everything adding some shadow and contrast.  I found a nice effect called focal zoom and used it twice to create a sun rise effect …


I saved my photo at that point but I wanted to get a little snazzier so I went to look at the textures app and tried them out until I decided to use this one which is light trails … and played around with it (lightening and darkening the effects adding contrast and shadows etc.) until I got a crazy ghostly effect.

Oh I forgot to say that for this last edit I tried PicMonkey Photo Editor.

Here is a gallery of the other edits:

  1. That sun and lines in the sky are incredible! This is a beautiful edit, It changed the whole feel of the image. I really love it. I think you do a great job explaining your vision and process, I learn a lot and like where you go with each image. Looking forward to next month, hope you are continuing to participate.

  2. Wow!! Now I really like the originality and dazzle of this last edit. The rich tones, the whimsy sunrays. You have turned an ordinary image of yachts in a marina into a really creative, unusual image with heaps of originality. It goes without saying that Week 4 wins!Great work.

  3. Like everyone else commenting, WOW this was really different and creative. I liked how the warm orange tonings suited your sunray effects so well.
