January One Four Challenge – Week 2


Lake Q Twilight, Week Two

Lake Q Twilight, Week Two

I lost track of some of what I did in the beginning, but somehow, after giving it a new crop, I pretty much had a silhouette with a deep rosy color. And I layered that with a B&W image and merged those two layers. I then boosted the saturation and used the Cutout Filter.  With the Black and White pic I used the accented edges effect, layered those two.  Last, I boosted the gamma and the curves tool gave it more clarity.  Then, I overlayed another image layer over that of a photo I took a couple of years ago of some concert lights.

  3. It’s fun to overlay sometimes isn’t it! Beautifully done!!

    Not crazy about the overlay….prefer the serenity of the Week 1 version.


  5. Robyn G says:

    Wow I love this week’s result. Enjoyed reading about your process too.
    I find this very appealing!! Nice work Janis 😃

    I like the artistic rendering of this photo. The layers really made me look closely to see what was going on. Intriguing!


  7. Anita says:

    Ooh I love that rosy tint and the overlay!


  8. Joanne says:

    Wow, so different! I kept getting drawn back to look at this image repeatedly. It’s really interesting. At first I didn’t think I was going to like it, but the more I looked, it grew on me. Good work! Eager to see where you take it next!


  9. svtakeiteasy says:

    Wow, that’s a really odd effect! Love the experimentation you did, but it’s a bit too out there for me – love the serenity of Week1. I bet you had heaps of fun though, and that’s the main thing!


  10. This is very cool and dramatic. Personally I prefer the peacefulness of week one, but I do like this a lot. It’s almost like an entirely new photograph with the layering.


  11. Interesting surreal interpretation of the image.

    Like the crop and the colour, a very different edit Janis.

    Your manipulations have produced a really dramatic image.
