It is the first Monday of the month, which means only one thing: it’s One Four Challenge time again! This photo processing project is hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me. We choose our own image and work on four different interpretations over four consecutive weeks.
As our followers know, I am at home alone for a few weeks while my partner Wade is taking our boat to Queensland. I will be joining in the fun in Mid July, when my family arrives from France and we will spend three weeks together, cruising the Southern part of the Great Barrier Reef. Bengie, our Bengal cat, has gone with Wade. The house is empty without them!
So when I thought of a subject for the July One Four Challenge, it had to be Bengie. She is a cat with an attitude and I will have fun playing with this image, taken on board with my iphone! I miss her chats and her cuddles, so it’s a good excuse to spend some time with her virtually. Here is the orginal:
Week One Process
As you can see the original is quite dark. So my week one task is simple: lighten her in Lightroom, open up the shadows, up the clarity and vibrance. Here is the result. Isn’t she gorgeous? Look at those whiskers and her beautiful eyes… OK I am a bit biased!
As always, be sure to check other participants work by clicking on the One Four Challenge tag. There is quite a band of photographers taking part and it’s fun to see what everyone else focuses on.
