Back again for Month 5 of the One Four Challenge after missing month 4…though I almost forgot about it…March came up SO fast!!
And wow again…it is already post time for week 2!!! I got a few suggestions based on Week 1 to try a ND filter to bring back some sky detail. I attempted it in Lightroom or Photoshop(or both?) but didn’t have the time to get it worked out(I have no idea where the time went…I really haven’t been doing anything!).
So I took a quick and easy way out for this week and used an iPad app after I did some cropping to remove most of the foreground snow and ice. I used Stackables app(Orange Day formula). The treatment is a bit heavy-handed but overall I like the effect of the textures and light layers. The rusty vignette is too strong but it I think the photo resembles a vintage postcard now:
I think that next week I will do a heavy crop and get rid of most of the sky. Or make another attempt at the ND filter(maybe there is an app for that too!!!)
The gallery shows the original, week 1 and week 2:
