I’m always admiring Marsha Leith’s photos on her blog, Coolquilting, and last week she joined a new photo challenge that caught my eye as something I might want to do. Today I decided to join in as well since it can coincide with my Lightroom progress. So,it’s a WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post, and this week’s theme is shadows.
For this, I took an old fave of an alley off of Washington St. in Boston into Lightroom and applied one of their black and white presets, the red high contast and recropped it. I liked the smooth, understated feel of this edit.
I couldn’t decide between 2 post edits this time, so since it’s the last, I’ll go out with a double header! Both final edits were done in Pixlr-o-matic. Obviously I like them both. What do you think?
This one is reminiscent of an early spring morning on Cape Cod where I might stop here with a coffee in the car and get out for a morning walk on the beach.
This seems more like a vintage postcard. I love the look of it.
Oh, and what the heck! Here’s the beach!
Many sundown strolls and swims here!
Farewell One Four Friends! Robyn’s Captivate Me Blog will always be found even though the One Four Challenge is now over. Thanks for sharing all the great photos and incredible information and tips that have seriously helped me learn how to use Photoshop way more than I could before the challenges. Namaste, Robyn and challenge friends!
Time Travelling Woman
Playing along in the One Four Challenge again. It’s Week four already! I’ve been playing around on another project with photos of ancestors. This woman intrigues me, though I have no idea who she is. Are we related or is she a family friend I’m pretty sure she’s from Montreal at sometime around or just after the turn of the 20th century. So I thought perhaps I’d give her a go of it here and now. As you can see, things got a little crazy when she entered the 21st century the earth shook a bit!
This challenge will resume again in May.
I’ve included the original pic in the slideshow below.
