For Week One of the One Four Challenge, which is a challenge where you edit one picture four different ways, I started with this original shot.
These little wild tomatoes (At least I assume they are tomatoes – or does some one recognize them as something else?) caught my eye as they were in the river bed. Of course, I had to get down on my knees among the weeds to photograph them. The things we do for pictures.
For my first edit, I wanted to change the color to red, so they really did look like cherry tomatoes. To do this, I went to the Image tab in Photoshop CS5. Then, under adjustments, I chose the selective color option. From there, I tweaked the yellows to make those more red by adjusting the yellow levels to what you see below.
The end result was a definite change in color and a more vidid pop of the main subject of the picture.
So what do you think? What would you try differently? Feel free to comment openly. I find feedback a great way to get new ideas and learn.
There are tons of other bloggers participating in the challenge as well. All you have to do is search One Four Challenge in the reader and a good long list will come up.
Have a great month you all, and I will see you next week with another edit on these little wonders.
