I’m joining Robyn’s One Four Challenge this month – one photograph processed four different ways over the month.
For Week 3 I am going with a monochrome. I can’t remember every step I took in this because I tried so many things but primarily I played with the power curves, and vibrancy using Sagelight. I also cropped the sides a bit to eliminate some effects that were happening there that detracted from the image. I blew out the clouds, nice as they were, for a more serene landscape. I moved from the photographic to the artistic, playing until I found something that caught my eye. Looked at as a photograph there are some less than desirable effects here, such as the increased noise. And the contrast is rather strong in the mid ground land mass. However, artistically I find the varying tones interesting; I like the balance between the greatly detailed foreground and the blank sky and how the image is contained by the upper clouds; I think it’s a good composition. The overall etched in silver effect intrigues me.
Week 3 – Etched in Silver
Week 2 – Surrealistic
Week 1: I just added some oomph to the image
