One Four Challenge May 2016 Week 3


Week 3 B&W.2

Week 3

Hi there!

Although this is an old pic I took with an old Sony (I think), I recently picked up a new but used camera – a Pentax that I’ve been practicing with, trying to learn about this new tool. Hopefully I’ll get a bunch of new photos on Cape Cod this week – yay! I can’t wait to get going!  I was planning on going last week but my car sprang a leak and it took awhile to get the right part.  You know when you have an old car they stop making the parts for it so it gets a little tricky finding the right one.  But I should be on the road by tonight.

This was my post edit process for this week:

A. Cropped, B&W, Adjusted Exposure and Shadow/Highlights; Reduced Noise and Smart Sharpened.

B. Duplicated image; applied Curves, Brighten/Contrast and Levels. Reduced Noise and Smart Sharpened.

Copied B and Pasted it over A with 50% opacity.

Applied a Frost Effect in Pic Monkey and added a Photo Cooling Filter.

Linking up with Captivate Me.

Also on Flickr.

About turtlemoonimpressions

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

    Good to see this in BW Janis and surprisingly the colour is my fave… seems to lend itself more to the image, which surprises me due to the contrast in the image.
    Anyway another good experiment 🙂
    Enjoy your new secondhand camera – hope you’re learning the ropes!
