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.
After a lot of cogitating, I’ve decided to go black and white with a huge splash of colour for week three.
In last weeks post, I had a comment about the fact that the lack of red colour in the image made you look at the detail in the rest of the image instead. Well this week, I am turning that on its head, so to speak and exaggerating the red by desaturating the rest of the image totally. I used Lightroom to convert to black and white by reducing the saturation in all the colours in the HSL panel except for the red and then fine tuning with the adjustment brush to remove the red from the rest of the image.
Any comments and suggestions are most welcome.
Here is the original and edits so far for contrast.
