Robyn at Captivate Me hosts the One Four Challenge – one of our own photos four different ways over the course of the month, on Mondays.
This is my photo for the month – it was taken during the changing of the guard at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. This will be about searching for the images within the photo. I’ll try to get four good crops out of this and then play with them in hopes of producing four interesting images from the one photo.
I must admit I had difficulty finding a fourth crop. My original hope was that I would be able to go to the four quadrants of the image and find something interesting. However, the upper left quad did not pop anything so I returned to the bottom right for this last image. My usual steps – adjusted the lighting and the level of detail after which I found I needed to sharpen the image a bit. I used the dodge and burn to push his companion into shadow.
So these are my four images from the one photo starting with the original and running in order through week 1 to week 4.
