One Four Challenge – (Red) White (and Blue)

I’m back with a new post for the One Four Challenge, by Captivate Me.

This is the 3rd week of the month, but my 2nd post, since I missed the first one.

The picture and the theme are the same as last week: red, white and blue on a picture taken on the 4th of July, while waiting for the sun to set and the fireworks to start.

Last week I used red, so today it’s time for White.

The picture was taken with a MotoX phone, running Android KitKat.
To edit it, I used Fotor app, on a PC running Windows 8.1.

I modified the picture by playing with the tint, hue, temperature and exposure, trying to get it as white as I could, while still able to see the entire scene.

One Four Challenge – Red (White and Blue)

Hi there,

I have been away for a long, long time.

Then yesterday I signed in again and discovered a new photo challenge that seems interesting.

It’s the One Four Challenge, by Captivate Me.

The idea is to make 4 edited versions of the same picture and post one each week of the month.

We are already on week 2 of July, so this month I’ll be posting only 3.

And since it’s July and we started the month with a national holiday in the US, to celebrate Independece day, I’ll be using a picture I took on the 4th, while waiting for the sun to set and the fireworks to start.

To accent the picture, I’ll use the 3 colors of the flag, starting today with Red.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green, take 3

On my regular lunch time walk, I did the trail that goes through the woods. Part of the trail is a wooden bridge that goes along some little lakes. On my way back, though, I decided to go around the lakes, instead of coming back by the same bridge, to minimize the amount of walking in slippery surfaces.

But going around we actually see different lakes from the ones we see from the bridge. And the one I saw today was completely green. Perfect for this week’s challenge. Luckily, I took my camera with me today.

So here’s the green lake.

This post was the second response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Green, and here are the first and second ones.
