This is a shot from 2007, one of the first when I had my Canon 5D.
Firstly is the version I have re-edited in Lightroom cc. This is, thankfully, my favourite version of this image.
Next is the straight out of camera, unedited version.
And this is the edit I did some time ago.
I cannot remember when to be honest - sometime between taking the image in 2008 and now I guess!!
So what do we learn from this?
Firstly, if an image is a good image then it is a good image. Work in Lightroom and Photoshop, and anyhting else you want to use, only enhances the image you have made - it does not make it good. Well sometimes it can, but in general if your shot is rubbush no amount of processing will make it a great image.
Why do I like this shot?
I like the mood, atmosphere, and subtlety of the colurs. I feel a cool, winter, foggy morning in the New Forest.
