One Four Challenge – July Week 2

072015one julyI’m playing along with Robyn in her One Four Challenge for July.  Here is my Week 2 entry.

I decided to play with this sign and bicycle.  I took this photo at Canby Community Park.  I just thought it had an air of irony to it.  This is my original photo to the right.

Week 2 Edit

For this week I went with more of a vintage look.

  • I lightened the top of photo in Adobe Bridge.
  • I then added a few layers from Color Efex Pro 4.
  • Then in Photoshop I added a background
  • I also cropped the photo a little bit.

I hope you enjoy the results.


Week 1 Edit

  1. I’m not sure which I prefer. I think I’ll wait till the end of July to decide. 🙂 But I imagine it’s only going to get harder!


  2. The greener toner is nice but I’m less certain about the lime green frame around it 😜


      1. I think for me the biggest issue is that tonally the shades of green are quite different so I find it particularly jarring – Im odd that way 🙂


  3. Cee this works for me 😃 It definitely has a vintage feel. On this screen your background shows up as a mustard colour and it looks good.
    What’s next? 😜


    1. I have no idea. 😀 Glad you like it. Different monitors and screen do weird things with color. I’ve had comments that the boarder looks like a lime green. It’s almost a slightly brighter tone of olive green on mine computer.
