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.
This week I was watching one of Adobe TV’s Lightroom video tutorials and they were showing how to do split toning. I had done this last week on my ABFriday post, but got the results more by luck than anything else. She was explaining the difference between highlight and shadow toning and how to create a cross processed image. Its still going to take a bit (lot) of practise, but I like the effect she got so I thought I would give it a go.
As an aside, Ben Rowe from Aperture64 mentioned last week that on the week 1 edit the change in temperature had softened the contrast on the telephone box and suggested that I selectively change the white balance to bring it back. I used the adjustment brush to increase the tint and temperature to make it look more red and have to agree that it has improved it, I think it has made the colours more punchy, here is the result of the changes. I’d be interested to hear what others think about this.
And finally, a gallery of the edits so far…
