We have reached the final week of our September One Four Challenge. This photo processing project hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me is always such a great experience, with lots of interaction and feedback between participants. Funnily enough, we have returned to Queensland for a brief escape on our catamaran Take It Easy. We feel a bit in a state of withdrawal with our boat 2500kms away up North till the end of the year! So this escapade has allowed me to revisit the mangroves!
Week Four Process
For this fourth interpretation, I have chosen to work in Photoshop and apply the Solarising filter. I then adjusted the brightness and contrast, increasing both so the mangrove and aerial roots really stand out. I love the warm effect and the tones in the sky and water in the foreground. Here is how the image looks:
I really like the effect in this interpretation. To me mangrove is synonymous with heat and burning sun. So this solarised version seems an appropriate way to end the series.
The slide show displays the progression each week and includes the original picture.
Do share your thoughts and feedback about this version.
Time to Vote!
Since this is the final edit for this month, I am including a poll and would love it if you would vote for your favourite interpretation.
