Lens-Artists Challenge #154: One Photo Two Ways

This week, Tina leads the theme “One Photo Two Ways”. Tina asks us to show the same subject captured using multiple, different approaches.

Here are a horizontal and vertical images of a pavilion in the local Japanese Garden:


Another example is a Zinnia flower, one was capture from the side and the other was from the top of the same flower.

Panning on a still scene is a cool way to capture a landscape. The technique enables us to blend the colors and elements of the scene into an abstract image. For this one, I selected shutter priority mode with 1/25s and moved my camera vertically.

The isolated color process through Photoshop can make an image a little more interesting. I first turned the original image into black and white, then isolated the chairs in red:

Topaz Studio provides many opetions. Sometimes, I take my photo there  to create a painting-like photo.

Tina gives us many opportunities for this theme — “in a vertical vs horizontal crop, in color vs monochrome, a scene from afar or zoomed in close on a particular area  of the same image, etc.” Click here to view her beautiful images. Hope you will join us and show your one photo two ways. please link your post to Tina’s original post and use the Lens-Artists Tag to help us find you in the WP Reader.

Thank you for joining in last week’s “It’s a wonderful world”. Your photos of nature, travels… have been inspiring and comforting, and they are all beautifully presented. It was quite moving and special to read about the “parents” for this theme. I enho Patti’s thoughts– “At times over the past 15 months, it’s been hard to keep the faith. The news is noften overwhelming. World events, natural disasters, political and institutional crises have shaken us out of our complacency and rattled us to the core. We doubt that life is predictable, happiness is possible, and people are good….” Yes, so many of us “turned again and again to nature, finding comfort in its beauty, its generosity, its predictability.”

An important announcement. We are excited to announce a special event for the month of July. Several of our previous Guest Hosts have agreed to lead the Lens-Artists challenge. We’re sharing their themes in advance and hope you’ll join us and them in the coming weeks. They include:
