One Four Challenge – February Week 1 – UPDATE

UPDATE:  Thanks to everyone who commented on my first edit of the Hammock image.  I revisited the cropping and now have another version, which is shown below.  I just cropped the LH side and top a tiny bit to remove an odd edge from the beam, and then removed the distracting chair by extending the red wall.  I like the idea of the red “frame” for the white hammock.  THANKS for your suggestions!

The One Four Challenge involves editing one photo four different ways.  Thanks to Robyn at Captivate Me for organizing it!

Since I have been on a fabulous tropical vacation this past week, I chose one of my photos from the trip for the One Four Challenge.  “Hammock” didn’t require too much for the first edit… a small crop, a little sharpening and I toned down the red color slightly.  The edits were made in Aperture.  The first edit and original are shown below.

I welcome comments and feedback!

  1. Very nice photo. You ask for feedback, well I would crop it a little less, so you see the nice stone wall on the left until the top of the image. Maybe take out some yellow/green out of the plants, see how it looks, but maybe it looks better with the slightly fluorescent effect as it is now.

  2. Looks very relaxing and tropical 🙂 Where is my cocktail with the fruity umbrella?

    Like the first poster I think a bit less of a crop on the LH side might be nice too?
