Original Photo

For this week’s One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn G. at Captivate Me, I took a snapshot that I’d taken on January 30, and decided to render it monochrome.  I first cropped the photo and then shadowed the photo and added Graduated Tint to the upper portion of the photo to remove the glare from the sun in the trees. I then used a Filtered Black and White too to accent the blues at that point, I went to the tint filter to find a tint not so starkly black and white … I don’t like the Sepia tool on Picasa 3, which is the app I used for this week’s work.

  1. Georgia, what a lovely place to sit and be 😃
    Your monochrome makes this image seem very old. Even though you don’t like the app, Im glad you tried it.
    Looking forward to the next ones and I do hope you include that beautiful path in some! 😃
