Quiet Thursdays – Robyn’s One Four Challenge

southern-cross-station-trains-2

Robyn, from Captivate Me, has started a new challenge and I thought I might participate.  I will do it on this blog this time, but think I will continue it on my other blog after this week.  I think I will also start telling you about other challenges that I might consider doing.

So today, I have the original image for you.

southern-cross-station-trains-1

This is an image I took recently at Southern Cross Station on a Sunday afternoon as Social Snappers was finishing an excursion and we were getting ready to get on the train to go home.  I loved the symmetry of where we were, and as we were standing there a train came in and it meant that all the platforms had trains, a full station.  Perfect.

I haven’t done much to this one above, just the usual normal processing.

Here is my first attempt at processing it.  Well doing further processing.  I’ve been trying something and I haven’t quite worked it out, but I’m not too disappointed. I still have three more weeks to work it out.

If you would like to see more, then follow this link ONE FOUR CHALLENGE – NOV WK 1 and look at the pingbacks to see others.  If you would like to participate, then follow the same link to see what you have to do.

  2. Great shot, I love the symmetry. This is definitely an improvement on the original, the colour and lighting have a really interesting feel and the light has created a better sense of movement of the people in the foreground. I look forward to seeing what you do next with it. 🙂

    • That’s wonderful, thank you.

  14. Sounds like fun! Count us in, starting today. Will let you know when we have published the post. Please do be kind….we are new to this and remain mystified by Photoshop.

    November 7, 2014
    • That is wonderful, though you need to send your pingback to Robyn’s blog that is where everyone is doing it so everyone else can go and look at what everyone is doing. Did that make sense at all? Thanks

      November 7, 2014
      • Thanks. Yes, I think so. Stay tuned, and we will see if I did it correctly.

        November 7, 2014
      • Okay, will look out.

  17. Done! Ping backs enabled, both to your blog and to Captivate Me. Hope it worked. More importantly, I hope I finally figure out Photoshop. Thanks for the inspiration. http://exploretheworldwithyourkids.com/2014/11/07/shutterbug-notes-taking-the-one-four-challenge-week-1/

    • It certainly worked this way, so I am sure it worked to the other blog as well. You’re welcome.

    Im not sure why but the green toning really works in this image, makes it feel slightly futuristic perhaps, like you see in shiny magazines 🙂

    November 8, 2014
    • I was going for that look, well it is something I’ve been working on, thanks Stacey.
