Phoneography Challenge in the Key of Waikiki (updated post)


The Monday of week 5 of Sally’s Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge, is for editing and processing photos taken using the afore-mentioned mediums. Being pretty much of a purist, I stray not far from the original photos I take. The best I could do was take color from the original using Snapseed, adding a vintage effect, and giving it a bit of a boost in PicMonkey. And then, getting pretty reckless, I went to Pixlr Express to try one more variation.


The return from Oahu late last night finds me still on Hawaiian time, and in a rather dreamy kinda mood. Let me know which of the above photos is your favorite, if you feel like leaving a comment, if not, let’s just hang loose.

And, after publishing, and having a suggestion that it would have been nice to include the original photo…


Good suggestion, bulldog.

  1. I have to agree with the retro look, Angeline. Lovely capture and both edits work well, just give a different feel.



  2. Each one is wonderful. I think the 1st one looks mysterious. Perfect for a jazz club. 😉

    Close to natural is the best!
    I love the memories that swirl in my mind as I look at your photos. Being Filipina, I grew up with the romance of music, having a father that loved to sing and play his ukulele or his guitar. Thanks for the post.

  12. Angeline, like that you selected a retro patina for the image. It works so well. I also am a purist, but enjoy the discovery of re-imagining some of my photographs. Cannot wait to hear more about your trip. Happy Photo Challenge.

    I like the illustrative nature of the second photo the most and the sepia-toned version is very welcoming. Good job with both versions.
