Another month for the One Four Challenge which you can read about it, and join it here. This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks.
And another photo from Oak Hammock Marsh!! There were just a few hikers on the many walking trails and these 2 passed us while I was photographing some cat-tails and assorted details in the marsh.
The colour is a bit washed out but overall I like the photo..with the tall grasses on the left and the curved path on the right…..and the vast marsh in the background.
For the first week edit, I used a new-to-me Lightroom Preset by Light Stalking from their Vivid Presetify set called Vivid Lomo. It certainly added colour(vivid lomo being a very appropriate name for the preset!)..but a bit too much, so I desaturated it a tad and also applied the dehaze filter. A little bit of white balance correction since the clouds were a bit golden due to the preset and this is my week 1 edit:
The golden colours of autumn with some colourful hikers!
The horizon is almost smack dab in the center of the photo which breaks one of the basic rules of composition…so I am thinking that my be a perfect place to start for next week’s edit.
