WEEKLY INFORMAL CHALLENGE 67: "Change/Adapt"

Post Fri Jul 22, 2011 4:25 pm


Welcome to Weekly Informal Challenge 67: Change/Adapt

Here is a bit of an experiment for the challenge. For this week you are given five shots (quick snaps straight out of my camera resized for uploading and one desaturated) with which you can:

(1) Copy and edit for improvements. (This can be as simple as a proper cropping or as complex as you want to make it with your post processing/editing skills)

and/or

(2) Use one of these as a model for a subject you shoot and improve on from your perspective.

I want you to change and adapt these to make them into images you would be happy with. I have tried to offer some variety within the five images. I hope you find this challenging and entertaining. Click on the thumbnail below and you will be able to right click and save a 900 x 600 size of the image.

I'm hoping we will discuss and politely interact as we view these adaptations with one another. HAVE FUN!!

So, we use one of them and then manipulate it? I'm just wanting to make sure I understand. :)

You can (1) copy one of these and manipulate it if you want or you can (2) go out and find a similar subject and shoot one of your own that you would be happy with.

EXAMPLE (of using these as a subject): Let's say you want to improve on the shot of the road over the hill with the clouds and sky on the horizon, you would just go out and try to find a shot with the atmosphere connected to an earth-bound foreground in some way.

Be as liberal as you want in this interpretation. Some people are masterful at layering images so they may find that this allows them to layer in something that they shot with one of the ones I've put on here.

NOTE: I walked around for a few minutes yesterday with the 50mm so I would be forced to use my feet to compose (or limit my composition) and took three and pulled off the road this morning and shot the two with the blue Chicory in them.

I don't have photoshop or anything, so it might have to be a simple crop for me.

Scott....You are so creative!
Thank You for this invitation to....creativity in a different way.
I like this, it will give me a break from the crazyness of my circumstances at the moment,

This will be fun i think :)

Great idea, Scott! This was interesting and challenging, a nice change of pace. I wasn't sure if we were suppose to edit all five of the images or just select one and go with it, so will start with this one and add more if that is the intent. I liked the crop in this image so kept with it and added some filters to give it a little different look:

I've played around with a couple of photos and decided I'd post this as it was the hardest to do!!!

Inspired by the chicory flowers pictures I created this:
