Here we are, at the beginning of a new month, which means we are at the beginning of the February One Four Challenge. Hosted by one and only Robyn from Captivate me, this challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks. Meaning every Monday you get to see something new from our kitchen.
Ever the lazy one, I picked out my February image this Sunday. And I think I picked out a great image to play with. By the week 3, I’ll probably think I was crazy, cause I’ll be out of ideas. Same happens every month, but I manage to pull it off, mostly because of your comments and suggestions.
I took numerous photos of inner-court gates in Milan last year, most of them still waiting in my folder “Milan Gates”. I was planning to show them all, because there are so many amazing iron gates, but changed my mind. Since I hope I’ll go back there this May, I’ll try to take the same images, to see if I learned anything in the last year.
My editing choices were simple, cropped to get the symmetry, straightened it a bit, played with exposure and saturation and added the vignette to draw your eye to the middle of the image. The idea behind this edit was to get a feeling you were looking through the peephole into a secret passageway.
I know this is a simple editing job, but I already have some interesting ideas. Looking forward to what future brings. (Hmmm, I wonder if there is a way to introduce the aliens into this image? 😛 )
