I’ve been using previous versions of ON1 Photo 2019.5 for many years now and I’ve watched its progress from a Lightroom / Photoshop Effects plugin to a fully fledged RAW Processing package.
ON1 Photo RAW is being touted as an alternative to Lightroom & Photoshop for Photographers and now supports many advanced features aside from RAW Processing & Effects Filters. Features like Layers, Layer Masks, Luminosity Masks, HDR Merging & Panorama Stitching to name but a few.
I haven’t fully embraced the newest version yet, but I’m excited to take a closer look and see how I can make the most of this new release. I’ve always found that it has formed a solid part of my post processing workflow and I’m intrigued to see how much that will grow and whether it really can be a serious replacement to Lightroom.
“ON1 Plus provides in-depth monthly courses on using ON1 Photo RAW and courses from top photographers on the photography topics you care about most. All of it is easy to follow-along and fun. You can also join-in with other ON1 Photo RAW 2019.5 customers to ask questions and share photos. That is ON1 Plus.”
For those out there not happy about the current Adobe Subscription model or not able to justify the cost then ON1 Photo RAW 2019.5 is available as a One Off Perpetual License at a very reasonable price. If you’re not sure if it’s for you then why not download the Free 30 Day Trial from the ON1 Website and give it a go.
On1’s recent webinar offers some interesting insight into using ON1 Photo RAW 2019.5:

We heard that there are some baby Swans around Lake Wagardu in Yanchep National Park so we took a trip out there for our daily walk, sadly the Swans were a no-show but we did get to see a lot of other bird life around the Lake.

If you look closely at the above image you can see a Pelican and numerous other wading birds and ducks going about their daily business. The Park really is a natural wonder 🙂

One thing Yanchep National park has in abundance is Ducks!
When we sat on a park bench to eat our lunch three Pacific Black Ducks waddled on over to see if they could get some crumbs. One was immediately chased off by the other two, obviously he wasn’t part of the “In-Crowd”!
Luckily for the Ducks we know more about what is good for them than they do so they weren’t very lucky in the food department. It is really important not to feed Ducks or any other wild animals as it can upset the balance of nature as well as causing serious health problems according to the Department of Parks & Wildlife.
The first couple of Duck shots weren’t quite so sharp, something to do with having a shutter speed of 1/40th sec I suspect 😳 However, you can get some interesting shots of animals with slow shutter speeds sometimes, the first 2 photos I took looked like the Duck was shaking and nodding his head …

Being Spring there were also a lot of incredibly cute Ducklings around this extended family of Australian Wood Ducks were gorgeous …

These two Pacific Black Ducklings cuddled up by the Lake were pretty damn cute too …

While on our walk around the lake I spotted this awesome carving on one of the tree stumps, no idea who did it but it looked cool.

Hopefully we’ll spot the Swan’s Cygnets on our next trip to the Park.
