The OneOwner Experiment . . . Again

In THIS<<link post I briefly explained why I don’t follow opinion blogs.

. . . but mentioned  I follow many some photo blogs. Two such blogs are lightscatter<<link and 2clicksaway<<link, both run by oneowner, a. k. a. Ken Bello<<link.

I follow them because they offer ideas for subjects and composition and because of the often interesting post-processing and treatments of the photos. One recent post<<link had me attempt to duplicate one of his compositions . . .

OK, so I wasn’t overly successful.

As I mentioned in my 2018 post, I would classify his photos as closer to photographic art than just photography. Why am I mentioning the blogs? Well, because people might be interested in what he offers . . . 

. . . and because I again wanted to try my hand at some of what he does. Mind you, it’s not exact. It probably isn’t even close. But, it’s close enough for me. 

Ken often offers up photos such as THIS<<link and during my recent travels I came across a scene I immediately envisioned as perfect for this post.

Red signal at the end of a breakwater.Now, Ken does interesting things with his photos.

Whereas I might be tempted to convert to monochrome . . .

Monochrome version of red signal at the end of a breakwater.. . . Ken will leave a bit of color in the shot . . .

Monochrome versions of red signal at the end of a breakwater.Well, I can’t just copy what he does, can I? So, here’s a small gallery of a similar shot but treated a bit differently.

And because I wouldn’t be me without adding something from Topaz . . .

Readers might again see these photos when I process the photos from my trip. Meaning, these were shot with the Samsung Note 8, but I have the same scene shot with the Nikon D7500 and with different compositions and zooms.

To see the photos in their original size or presented a bit better, please visit the associated SmugMug Gallery HERE<<link.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
