Things are hotting up now in Week 3 of our December One Four Challenge, hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate me! It is fascinating to see how each participant is tackling the transformation of their image. This is such an enjoyable project to take part in and to observe!
This week, things are getting more tricky from an internet service point of view. We left for our sailing adventure a week ago, and working on the laptop on a heaving sea isn’t the best thing to do to keep your stomach under control! So bear with me if I am not as quick to post, comment or respond as I should be.
Week 3 Processing: “Tail Feathers”
Continuing with my exploration of the White Tern at Elizabeth Reef, I am this time concentrating on the bird’s slightly forked and translucent tail feathers. This week, they take pride of place in full frame against the colours of the lagoon.
My approach for this interpretation is simple:
- Cropped and resized the tail and rotated the image;
- Applied the Gradient Tool diagonally and selected a deep blue to aqua graduation.
What are your thoughts on this week’s processing?
