One Four Challenge: Week 3


Well that week certainly went very fast and next week yikes its Christmas!

This is the third week of our four week challenge this month. Please go to Robyn’s blog to find out more about the One Four challenges or put one four challenge in your tag search to find other entries.
For the last two weeks I have been working on my flower, firstly just enhancing the colours and darkening the background. The second week I cropped in a bit more and upped the colour and used an oil painting filter in Photoshop.

This week I went for a major crop.  As I said on the first post of the one four challenge, I was just learning with my camera and used a standard lens so the detail isn’t as sharp as I would like, nonetheless I felt a crop was quite interesting especially with the bugs on the leaf which, if I hadn’t of cropped, may have gone undetected.  I also pushed up the vibrancy and saturation some more.

I wanted an air of mystery, we know its a plant but I feel it shows its inner beauty on this one.

  3. I like the major crop, gives it forces you to focus on the one part.
