Silhouetted at Dawn — TreeSquare

Hi, all 😃 My entry for Becky’s July TreeSquare. This is also my entry for Tina’s Lens-Artists Challenge #154 — One Photo Two Ways, July Processing Challenge by the Squirrel Chase, & Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Trees or Tree Parts.

…and the original; I think I prefer this to the square crop 🤔

But I’m not finished; I edited through a monochrome filter for Cee’s Black & White Challenge, then tried desaturating it for a colder feel as the original has a lot of warmth to it, owing to the depth of colour (it was about -1℃ after all) & finally trying a dramatic cool filter.

Winter Brightness — BrightSquares Apr 13 and One-to-Three Photo Processing

Hi all 😃 My entry for Becky’s April BrightSquares & the SquirrelChase’s April Challenge.

Seemed an obvious to combine the two challenges in the one post. I’ve done some very basic editing on this one, using Apple’s embedded photo editing software.

The original

The first edit is a basic square crop, normal way up & inverted.

For the next edit, I dropped the light to it’s lowest setting. A lot of detail in the shot is lost, but the colours really come into their own with a rich contrast between the blue & yellow.

The opposite, this time. I ramped the light setting right up; the colours wash out to a degree, but the foreground detail in Lensy & the ice covered log he’s sat on become discernible.

Trying something different this time — I’ve desaturated shots before to give a washed out look, but never single colours. For this one I desaturated all the colours apart from blue to give a colder feel to match the sub zero temperature that this was shot in. The difference is quite subtle, hence the slider (the left hand shot is the original).

All colours but blue desaturated

One-to-Three Photo Processing Challenge — March 2021

Hi all 😃 My first entry for theSquirrelChase challenge.

All my editing for this post was done using Photo Focus & Splash Colour Pro. This was an App I got free to replace my previous Colour Strokes App which is no longer around.

I’ve gone for another lensball shot for today’s editing fun 😃
