One Four Challenge – October Week 4…

An alien spider army has come to attack us, run for your lives!

This week I decided to get away from trying to get that darn web to be more visible and go in a completely different direction.  My husband suggested having the spider attack my train photo… and this is what I ended up with.

How many spiders do you count?

Answer: There are 14 (Highlight area for answer)

Kind thoughts and comments are welcome!

In case you missed it… an Announcement about the One Four Challenge in November…

Announcement

As many of you who have been participating in the One Four Challenge know, Robyn, our illustrious host, is needing to take a break from hosting to take some down time for herself.  She has asked me to host the One Four Challenge for the month of November, and I happily accepted! 😀

Everything will stay the same, except instead of linking to her post you will link to mine for the month of November.  I will publish my weekly post at her usual time (6:30 am Aussie time on Mondays [UTC+11 AEDT]), so that everyone can start linking as usual.  Then throughout the week I will visit everyone’s posts and leave a comment (like Robyn does now).  It will be fun and a bit challenging, but I’m totally up for it.

In December, the challenge will be passed back to Robyn and I believe we will have our Review month.

It is an incredible honor to be chosen to help Robyn out, and I hope that you will all still participate in the challenge in November.

I’m not going to do a tutorial for this image, there are a lot of steps and is a rather daunting idea to write it out.

Here are the edits for this month (click to enlarge)…

Happy Halloween!

Until next time…

I have joined a month-long photo post-processing challenge called One Four Challenge, hosted by Robyn at Captivate Me. “This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks.” Every Monday Robyn posts a new version of her photo and challenges us to do the same each week.

    • Thanks, Stacey! It’s fun to play around with photos and go in a direction away from your norm. So there are actually 14 spiders in the image… 1 on the train, 2 on the left-side cliff, 1 on the right-side cliff, 1 near the runner further down the track, and 9 in formation on the hill on the horizon. 😀
