One Four Challenge – Jan Week 4

Here is my entry for Robyn’s One Four Challenge for January Week 4.

Here is the original photo.  I liked how this tree over hung on the road.

Here is my Week 4 version.

In this one I cropped it so the road was totally taken away.  I flipped the horizon. I cropped out the big telephone pole.  Did a little magic in photoshop.  Hopefully this now looks like a landscape on a lazy late summer afternoon.

Here is my Week 3 version.

In this one I cropped it so your attention would be on the road.  I also took out the wires and poles.  Hopefully you will want to see what is further down the road.

Here is my Week 2 version.

In this one, I took out the cropped it so there was more of the blue in the sky showing.  I deleted the signs along the side of the road.  Darkened the road to make it standout. Then I added a lighter green to the grass and tree and brightened it up a bit.

Here is Week 1 version.

I cropped this a little closer than the original photo.  In this version I keep the exposure a little darker to give more of a sense of darker cloudy skies.  Added a little yellow to green.

Until next week.

  1. Oh, my. How did I miss these? These are great. I especially like week’s three and four. Love the road scene in three, and like the sky in week four. Lovely work!

  2. This is a fascinating challenge and it is really interesting to learn about the changes you have made. For me each version has achieved a different feel, but I think my favourite is still week 1 🙂

    • That was how first saw this image in my head. I like all versions, I’m currently voting for the last one myself, but that is because it is fresh in my mind. Give me a month, my answer will most likely be different. 🙂

  3. For me it is week two that has won me over, the freedom of the open road and the bight colours give a nice positive feeling. I do like the idea of week four cropping the road out and flipping the scene, but I feel that something is missing at the bottom of the image.

  4. I think the flipped image is really interesting, I wish there was a little more to it at the bottom but I really like the colors in week 4. I voted for week 3, the road ahead is always a beautiful metaphor.

  5. Interesting take on this weeks challenge, but I feel that the bottom has been cropped too much, there is no foreground to anchor the image and it feels very truncated as a result.

  6. The saturated one with the bright yellow grass captures my eye. I am a bit confused – is it week 2 or 1? You know the one I mean, I am sure. I like the way you have taken an ordinary photo and turned it into something interesting

  7. Amazing to see the images your different edits produced! I was drawn in by the third one which emphasized the road & tree. Beautifully done!

  8. Hello Cee 😃
    I see the bird too – so clever!
    I like your edit this week, but 2 and 3 are the ones that really catch my eye.
    Fun – many different versions of your image.

Award Free Blog

I appreciate you thinking of me for an award. I have had a lot of fun with awards in the past. I think awards are a fantastic tool to help out people who are just starting their blogging adventure. I've been here awhile now.

My best award is that you somehow still come to visit me when ever you get a chance. It's a thrill and joy to share my photography and life with all of you. Thanks.
