One Four Challenge: December Week 3

1 4 Distressed FX (640x485)

Here is my third part of this challenge for December for Robyn’s challenge and Captivate Me:

For this week I added some texture with the Distressed FX app with the Lily and Charm filters,

I have seen some amazing transformations with other bloggers and all their complicated work in Lightroom and Photoshop.  I don’t have either one of them so rely on apps which means I don’t have such control over the changes so I just go by how I feel about the photo. But it is a lot of fun for me and that is what is important for me.  It is magic to me and that is what captivates me (sorry Robyn).

This was last weeks image.  As you can see I have added some warmth to the image with the charm filter.

  1. I have seen some amazing stuff done by people using various apps and not LR or PS, its very much what tools work for you and what you get out of them that counts the most I think 🙂


  2. I love the warmth you added to the image, it has a great feel. And the texture is soft and nice too. There are some great free programs out there, if you are interested in venturing. I am only just learning LR, but GIMP is a free version that is fantastic from what I have heard. I don’t really think you need to worry about your work at all, it is transforming each week, which is just what this challenge is about. Having fun and enjoying the process is the most important part, I think! Nice work.

  3. Oh so nice Raewyn!!
    I love the feel and mood of this. I love the tones and really enjoy the textural feel you’ve achieved that is so like paper or cloth.
    I so agree with what Stacey said, about the vision being yours.

  4. Nice edit, Raewyn. I like the warmth you have added to the image and its texture. And I too agree with the comments about your feel and vision being what counts, not the tools. You put a bit of yourself in all your work – photography (and processing) is not just about representing what you see, but adding your emotions. That’s when it works best! 🙂 Chris


  5. Beautifully done! So many great apps out there and so many free online editing really don’t need Lightroom or Photoshop. I love what you did here!
