Monochrome Madness – One image done different ways

Several years a lovely lady called Robyn used to run a challenge called 1 image 4 ways. It would run for each month. You had to pick one image and each week you had to do something different to it each week.

Below is one of the ones I did. It was a challenge that I enjoyed. Maybe we can bring it back, what do you think?

It was interesting looking at these four images because they are all pretty much monochrome. It was an incredible tree and it was good to see what I could do with it.

Participating in Monochrome Madness

If you would like to participate in this challenge please post photos on your blog and use the tag Monochrome-Madness, as then I can use the reader to see what you post. Also, use the tag mid-week monochrome to catch Bren’s as well.

    1. I agree Victor. I don’t do a lot of black and white, hence this challenge. It is always interesting to see what others do. 😀

    2. i see. same for me just about the colors. i use them only if they are the main subject or the helper. not because of some beautiful red hat which is not really a main story and only distraction from the emotions and expressions. 😉

    1. Nothing wrong with that Victor, we all like different things I guess. Though hard to do one image 4 ways if you are just doing that I think, but maybe I am wrong. Thank you.

  1. I like this, not just visually but philosophically. Back to visual: I think it was Monet who would painted the same spot in different weather conditions e.g. a cathedral or particular curve in a river. I saw some of these pairings at an exhibit in Toronto years back, and was struck by what they reveal: same place, different mood = different experience.

    1. I think you are right, that it was Monet, I often phtoograph things in the same way. I have seen some of his paintings too, they are so beautiful. Thank you Penny.

    2. on a very much humbler level, I think that about my own walks — often the same territory, but a different time of day/weather/angle/mood…

  2. That is such a photogenic tree and I love the different treatments you’ve given the shot. The one where you’ve stretched out the tree is very effective but my favourite is the last, with the dramatic sky edit 😮 It is a great idea for a challenge too, but did you know there’s already a similar one: ? You might like to join that, but it could also be fun to introduce a four way one like this!

    If I’d seen this sooner i might have done something similar but as it is I’m taking you a visit to Lviv in Ukraine (clearly from some years back, unfortunately):

    1. It is interesting, I love this tree, but there is another one there that everyone photographs. Thank you Sarah. We will have to see about doing the challenge.
