One Four Challenge – January Week 4 – Vote for your Choice

Robyn’s four week One Four Challenge, involves posting a photo each week that you have adjusted/altered in four different ways. Participants range from amateur to professional photographers, and the software, they use similarly widespread.

Last week I experimented with LR, but this week I have used a phone camera app, Sketch Guru, to crop and apply an artistic effect to the photograph. Click on the smaller photos to enlarge. The original photo is seen here.

Edited, straightened and shadows adjusted

Week 1 straightened and shadows adjusted


Week 2 Heavily saturated and framed


Week 3 exposure decreased in LR

Week 4 Sketch Guru App

Week 4 – Sketch Guru App – Painted effect

As always I invite you to select your favourite from the four weeks, vote, and post constructive feedback and criticism, if you feel so inclined. I appreciate everyone’s opinion.

I am going with Week 3 to win????

Something to Ponder About


About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

  1. My favorite is Week 1, although all the edits look great.

    Week 3 seems like the best version to me…it’s the sharpest and the best balanced.

    • Thank you Ben, I was pretty happy with Week 1 too, but wanted all along to increase the visual appeal of the mountains in the background, and that led me off to several other tangents!!! Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment. I appreciate that.

    I am a week 1 fan too. I love the highlights in the foreground plants, the color of the water and it feels realistic to me. I think you learned a lot during the month, it was great to see what you tried, always interesting to see how different styles of images appeal to different people. That is why I love this challenge, you get to go outside the ways you usually edit and see what else is possible 🙂

    My vote goes for week 1, with its natural, realistic look, but great experimentation each week.
