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.
Thank you for all the positive responses I got from last week’s (and the preceding weeks) images, I have really enjoyed participating in Robyn’s One Four Challenge. It definitely is quite a challenge to edit one photo, four different ways!
This week I have been playing with the tone curves in Lightroom and have gone for something a bit extreme! I was going for a look that was more of an abstracted, impressionist image. This time the colours were changed using the RGB channels of the tone curve whilst flattening out some of the other tones. I used a radial filter to emphasise the figure behind the phone box by decreasing the sharpness in the area outside and cropped to remove the bright, toneless sky.
Any comments and suggestions are most welcome.
Here are all the edits and the original for contrast, click on any phone box for a larger image .
Which do you like the best?
