We are now in Week 2 of the One Four Challenge, a photo editing project hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me. I am glad I chose this little fellow to work on this month as I have picked up ideas already from the feedback kindly given by other participants.
Week 2 Interpretation
This week, I want my little Chestnut Teal to stand out more in his glorious colours so the whole image really pops. So here is what I have done:
- Cropped a tiny bit of the image to move the duck a fraction to the left, as suggested by SueJ, to give him a little more room to swim!
- Created a background layer and applied a colour burn at 50% opacity. This gave the whole image more vibrance and intensity of colour (thanks Stacey and Loré),
- Applied the filter Distort/Spherise at 100% to bring out the Chesnut Teal a little more. It is a subtle effect, but it works in my eyes.
Here is the result:
As a reminder, this is the progression to date:
