One Four Challenge: May – Week 2

Sky added

I don’t know where the time goes.  It is time for week 2 of May’s photo for Robyn’s challenge over at Captivate Me.

I have only done a simple edit this week.  I have a Dummies guide to Photoshop CC so was doing some reading about selecting colours.  So with this knowledge I deleted the background and added a new sky with clouds.   I do think it brings out the apples a bit more.

Tell me what you think about this week.  I am open to some constructive criticism.  I would love some advice on what to do next, just for me to learn new techniques.

    1. Thanks Ben. The book has been really useful. I also added a little more sky too, to add the feeling of looking up into the top of the tree – sorry not really expressing my creative process that well.

    1. Thanks for that tip. I did think of that as well. We have a competition here in Hastings celebrating our fruit bowl of New Zealand Heritage. For that I have edited another photo and did my usual outside of the square work. I will post photos of them next week with my next post.

  1. Raewyn, before I read your post, my first thought was – the apples really come forward in this version. Good job. I like it!
    Food for thought – Ive been messing around in the filter gallery – there is lots in there. Im guessing its in CC as well. Yes a crop could be a good trial and also blending modes. Have fun! 😃😃


    1. Thanks Marilyn. It is always a work in progress. I have also found the videos useful. I have learnt to merge several photos for panorama in Lightroom and it was a matter of stop, start, check out other videos before I managed it. Will write about it tomorrow. I went to a local bookshop and ordered the book. And I do need it as well


    1. Thanks so much. It was the only edit I did. I had a good look in the book and then held my breath and worked it out on Photoshop. It took two attempts to get this. Now it is a matter of remembering how I did it.
