One Four Challenge – September Week 3

Our One Four Challenge continues.  This is a photo processing project hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me, which always provides great learning.  For this week’s wander around the mangroves, I am feeling a little artistic!

Week Three Process

I love playing with Foto Sketcher.  Although it feels a bit like cheating, it allows me to combine my passion for photography with my interest in painting.  So again, using my Week One edit as the base, I imported the image into Foto Sketcher and selected the Oil Painting pre-set.  I then tweaked the settings to my liking and added some texture.

Here is how the image now looks:

Mangrove - Week Three

Mangrove – Week Three

I really like what the painting effect and texture have done to the sky and the sand in the foreground.

And you can see the progression through the previous weeks in this slide show:

I look forward to your feedback.

  1. I like how you add the texture and the warm tones for week 3, Chris. I feel like to try the Foto Sketcher. 🙂

  2. Nice effect and I see a bit of canvas underlay as well – I know what you mean about feeling like using an app or a filter to do a cool effect feeling like cheating – I know I couldnt do it WITHOUT the tool, and it was my brain that composed all the steps, so its still my work, or so I try to tell myself 🙂
