Here we are in our final week of the January One Four Challenge, hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me. This is a photo processing project whereby you select an image and edit it in four different ways over four weeks. I have had fun once again this month and picked up a few tips. But most of all I have enjoyed the interaction with other participants who are very supportive and positive in their comments.
Week Four Processing
For this final week, I have gone back to using the Tangled FX app and simply used the Fibre effects option. I fined tuned the scale factor, the colour, contrast and hue, and here is the result!
I love the sparkling effect it gives to the wings and reeds. The Spoonbills really stand out and there is good detail. What are your thoughts about this week’s processing?
Time to vote!
Here are the four processed images, including the original.
In week 4, we include a poll for you to select your favourite image. I would love to know which of the four interpretations is your preferred version. Thanks for voting!

This week’s version is exquisite. Beautiful!
Thank you for your lovely words Joanne!
Shall have to revisit your previous weeks…I can’t access the slideshow on an iPad…. I’ll be back…..
The fibre effects looks great and it adds the detail of swirls and the colouring of gouache. Very nice. It has been great to see the progression of the image over the weeks.
Thank you for your feedback Ben!
I love this last edit, the grass looks like on fire. Great job in all edits, you showcased such a rare diversity in editing choices.
Thank you for such positive feedback Loré, I really appreciate your support.
The gouache had be from Week 1. The other versions have been nice and fun, but Week 1’s image remains my favorite.
Thank you for voting. It was a simple but evocative version!
You nailed it with week 4 Chris. It,s my favourite the wings really stand out the spoonies look fantastic. Sue
I love that one too Sue, with the effect on the wings and surrounding shore.
I love how detailed the birds are this week, I have enjoyed each week for different reasons but this week is my favorite. It is balanced and detailed in all the right places 🙂 Great edits this month, they were all very interesting.
Thank you very much for your lively feedback. You have been so encouraging. This one is my favourite too!
Looks like you’re having fun with Tangled, Chris! 🙂 It was a toss up for me between the fibers and the swirls. I voted for the swirls, but it could easily have gone the other way. 🙂
Close call this week between 2,3 and 4 but I really like the effect in Week 2 closely followed by Week 3. 🙂
Thanks for voting Kaz!
your welcome 🙂
It’s a toss up between week 2 and week 4.. but I think I’ll vote for week 4, because I really like the details on the wings. 😀
Thank you Nic😊
I voted for week 1 – I love it’s simple beauty. But I have to give an enthusiastic nod to this week’s as well!
The fibre effects is beautiful Chris – I really like the silky light flowing feel 😃
Im on iPad too… I’ll be back to vote! This week is lovely!
Thanks Robyn – you should be in bed! My excuse for being up is that I am on night watch… We are 3 hours from Lakes Entrance… Nearly home!
I am in bed Chris…. Lol
So many players now, Im doing a bit of visiting before sleep 😃😃
Was wondering how your trip was going? Hope its been great! Is raining on the coast near Sydney and inland presently with a top of 13 deg C on the Central tablelands today. Crazy weather!
Safe trip home Chris xx
Yes it’s been pretty chilly out on the water too! And I know what you mean about the number of participants. Hard to get to everybody! But it just shows the interest. Nighty night xx
Really love this weeks edits! Looks amazing 🙂
Thank you Sari😊
I will vote for this week as well- but really I have loved them all!!
This is such a great image. Like someone else has commented, it looks like the grass is on fire. I really like the effect but I have to say I prefer week two for the detail on the birds.
Thank you so much for your nice comment.
Chris Love the extra detail in this weeks version, I love this fractalised kind of effect myself and it works really well here, the detail in the grass and water is fun and the birds are ethereal now 🙂
Thanks so much Stacey and I live your choice of word -ethereal to describe the birds!
Week 2 swirls wins my vote, however I wish to comment that all were excellent photos. If push comes to shove, I would have to vote for the least favourite and that is the Tapestry effect. Really special photos here for all weeks. You have outdone yourself!!!
Thanks for rhe kind feedback☺️
My favourite is the gouache version – it highlights the wings and the birds and the rest is soft and almost out of focus. (Your original shot is pretty amazing too!)
Thank you for commenting and voting too😊
I love this week’s edit! The detail on the wings is just gorgeous. The gouache version is a close second. You captured a lovely image and have produced some great edits. I look forward to seeing what you share with us next month. 🙂
Thank you so much for your feedback . Yes February already!!
