February #One Four Challenge – Week 3

After last week’s soft and magical edit, I needed something completely different. I cropped it differently, flipped it, removed the color, replaced softness with this worn out, bleak look. It has a vintage look, like an old photo from your grandfathers photo album. It is funny how the gates look like a crochet my grandma used to make, they stand out against the washed out background.


Most of the work was done in PicMonkey, the usual stuff – straightening the image, cropping, adjusting exposure and turning it into a black&white image. But the final touch of vintage was done through FotoSketcher, by turning it into a vintage photo and then merging it with the original.

I have no idea where to go from here and I know this week will fly by in a blink of an eye. I just hope my wheels of imagination start turning on time.

  1. It is always amazing how cropping a pic can bring out so much detail that was originally overlooked the first time viewing the photo. I like the vintage look. Last week’s edit was beautiful too!

  2. My favorite it still week 2, but I tend to like fairy dust…. anyway, I do like this week’s edit, it really brings the gate forward and it has an old-world feeling to it, nice job. 😀

  3. This is another wonderful edition of your gates Lore!
    I too am surprised at how this treatment seems to bring the gates forward, revealing the ironwork behind them. Just fabulous!!
