This is the third week of Robyn’s One Four Challenge in which we all take one photo of ours and process it differently each successive week for four weeks. Below are the original, and my first two weeks versions.
I’m sorry. Was that rude? I’m talking about Robyn G of Captivate Me. Go check out the sites of everyone who has submitted this week. There’s quite an array of talent. All levels. Go! Look! Then come on back!
OK, this week I took the first week’s image with the transplanted sky and converted it to black and white. Then I tried a vintage preset in Perfect Effects, which was way too yellow. But it added a nice texture so I kept it and got rid of the yellow cast. But that left me with an OK shot in which I felt something was missing. So I added a split tone of yellow and blue and liked what it gave me. The image itself has totally lost any semblance of digital clarity it might have once had because of all the processing it’s been through. But that seems to match the feeling I’ve been trying to achieve- a rather battered and bruised older image faded by time.
