Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Editing and Processing

The orange traffic cone sticking through the balustrade on the stairs caught my eye and I used the Hipstamatic app to capture the image. Normally I do not apply post-processing edits to my Hipstamatic photos, but to stay within Sally’s guidelines I applied some changes with the Pixlr app.

I must admit that I am pleasantly surprised by the results and will consider post-processing some more of my Hipsta photos in the future.

    Allan, I like the perspective, but even more I like the edging and colors in it. Great job and a true reward for stepping out of your comfort zone!!

      Thanks, Janet. As it turns out, there’s plenty of room outside my comfort zone. Look, squirrel!

    This is an intriguing photo. Pixlr is fast becoming my favourite app on my tablet.

      Thanks for the info, Suzanne. Just curious, have you tried Snapseed?

        I often use Snapseed and Pixlr on the same image. Snapseed has some good filters and a HDR function which is useful.

          Thanks, Suzanne. I haven’t used the HDR function. I will have to check it out.

    I love the composition here. Interesting perspective.

      I pass by this staircase several times a week and use it to try different combinations at different times of day. It provides a platform to experiment and benefit from lessons learned.

    Allan, I particularly like your perspective. As engaging is the way the post processing allows the light to filter through with various hues. It’s an image that takes some studying due to its point of view: the upward shift that lends to discovery. Happy Photo Challenge.

      Thanks, Sally, and a special thank you for inspiring me to try something new.

    Really like all the shades of color in the processing. I often do a little something to my Hipstamatic edits.
    Happy Leap Day
