One Four Challenge: Week 3

On four challenge (640x579)

It is amazing how the time just seems to fly, especially as it is getting close to Christmas.  And even more so with this challenge.

About the challenge and how it works:

This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks.
We will all  process / post edit (our own chosen image) and share a different version each week.
Process it however you like… and tell us a bit about it. You don’t have to show the original image unless you’d like to.  (I’m going to show mine in week 4 along with the 4 variations from the month).
Try new things, experiment.  Be as creative or subtle as you wish to be.
Each week starts again on Monday (Aussie time) and closes off the following Sunday (at the end of the day), so there is a whole week for you to create your post, link up here and tag your post.
This is a perpetual challenge. We will do the 1st four Mondays of the month.
If there are 5 Mondays in a month – we’ll still only post on 4.

Snapseed edit (640x466)
Here are the previous images I have done and now for week 3
Photoshop Express edit (640x480)
What I have done is for each week I have used a different app for the editing.  This week I went to the Photoshop Express app and added the carmine filter and blurred the edges.  
Thanks for visiting.

Steve’s Snap & Zap Challenge: Lilacs

Lilac original. (640x471)

This week Steve has asked for nature in his challenge:

For each Snap & Zap I will suggest a new theme so take a new photo or use an existing photo and edit it with any software you like, so…

  1. Create a new post showing the original
  2. What edits have you made?
  3. What software/techniques have you used?
  4. Link back to the current week’s page

The theme for this “Snap & Zap…” is Nature.

So I found this photo of some lilac blooms.  I choose this one as the details are rather lost due to me shooting up towards the sky and the light blue sky fooled the sensors.

Snapseed drama (640x466)

So I added some drama in Snapseed.

Snapseed nature HDR (640x466)Then the HDR nature filter.

Snapseed blur (640x466)

And blurred around the edges to focus on the flowers.

ArtWorks comic filter (640x466)

Then for a bit of fun I went to ArtWorks comic filter.

PS spring filter (640x466)

Then my final stop was with Photoshop Express to add a spring filter to soften the comic affect.

PS white vignette (640x466)

And finally I added a white vignette to really get rid of the unwanted leaves to the left.

Thanks for visiting.

Phoneography Challenge: Sharing secrets

Secrets (640x482)

Good morning from a lovely Hastings morning.

The third Monday in November.  It is only  weeks to Christmas.  A scary thought.

Anyway it is time to show some black and white photos for Sally’s challenge:

I have shown these fairies before as colour in a previous post but I love them in black and white. They are from my mothers garden.

They look like they are sharing a secret in the garden.

Secrets 1 (640x482)

From the looks on his face it looks like he is saying something naughty and the girl is being shy or coy about it.
