Week Two. One Four Challenge of Editing. (November)

Editing a picture can completely change its look and mood. So Captivate Me’s blog, has a One Four Challenge to show that. Basically, take one photo and edited it four different ways over the month. This is week 2 for me.

Here is my original untouched photo of some leaves in my yard.


Here is my Week 2 edit.

For this edit, I added a layer of white to make it more dream like, or like there is more depth of field I suppose. Then I added HDR toning and played with the selective color until I liked the look. After that, I bumped up the contrast some.

  1. I love leaves! Your first images is so soft and realistic and the second looks like it could be on the cover of a book. The detail of the decaying leaf is beautiful and I love the misty tone to the background too. Leaves are addicting!


  2. Hi Michelle, so glad to have you joining with us in this challenge 😊
    Thanks for linking up!!
    I really like your 2 edits so far… The first so rich and colourful, and this second, edit lovely and soft. I really like the softness, but also love colour, so dont think I could choose.

    1. Thanks Robyn! I think I might be addicted to photographing leaves. I just took a bunch more today, lol. So I can’t choose yet either. Thank YOU for having the challenge. It is great practice with editing!


      1. Leaves are pretty wonderful subjects 😊 ..especially the gorgeous Autumn leaves.
        Seedheads are currently my focus around here. We’re heading into summer.
        Its truly a pleasure hosting – it is great to experiment and try different things…and meet others along the way.
