The One Four Challenge(you can read about it, and join it here). This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks.
For July, I chose another photo involving 2 people…out for a romantic walk along the riverwalk at The Forks in Winnipeg. I was playing with my new camera(Sony a6000) with a 55-210 mm lens and as soon as I saw them coming around the bend I knew I needed a photo.
There was a comment from last week by lensaddiction that said she liked the metal building which I had cropped out of the original photo…so I followed her instincts and decided to work with the original photo with the building still in it!
I sent the original uncropped photo to my iPad and played around with the Stuck in Customs app “100 Cameras” and liked an effect called “The Future of Us”. However, I wanted a bit more colour so I added an additional layer called “Inferno” in the Stackables app. I sent this multi-layered edit back to my computer for some PSE/PS editing. I used the clone stamp to remove a distracting tree branch in the background and also a bright spot right near the lady and her hat. I tweaked the hue a bit and came up with this edit for week 2. To me it looks like a vintage oil painting, still soft and romantic with lovely lighting on the river:
