Robyn G from Captivate Me hosts a monthly feature called One Four Challenge, one image processed four different ways. Each week of the month the participants post a different version of their image and at the end create a poll to see which image was the most popular.
I’ve been watching this challenge from the sidelines, but have now finally taken the plunge and found an image that I can get four edits from, it’s not an easy task!
This is one that I took in September, the bright red phone box caught my eye. Although considered quite a British icon, there aren’t really that many phone boxes around anymore. Most people have mobiles and of the telephone boxes that are left, not many are these red ones. The original was ok, but nothing special, I felt the colours were quite bland.
For the first edit, I played with the temperature and tint and colour sliders in Lightroom, to get some interesting effects, the one I settled on brought out the green colours whilst retaining the brightness of the contrasting reds.
Here is the original for contrast.
