This is a revisit on a photograph I captured and processed back in 2008. The new photo is probably more of an accurate representation of the colours that I actually saw.
There’s a lot of CA in both these photographs, not much I could do there. They original photo was taken on a 450D/17-85mm combination and saved as JPEG. If the image was taken in RAW, I’m sure I could have done a lot more.
This is the photograph that I had originally posted in 2008. A little over the top with the HDR sliders.
Over the past few years, I’ve seen my photography change and improve. Looking back on what I’ve learnt over the last 3 years, I’ve realised what an incredible journey it has been.
Reflecting on past work…
I was looking though my older photographs and found one that I captured and processed way back in January 2007. This photo was taken on my old 6.2 mega pixel Sony T10 point and shoot camera. When I edited the photo original, it’s likely that it took me about 30 minutes.
…To create better work!
I decided to dig up the original photograph and re-process it to see how much my processing methods have changed. I spent about 2 minutes on this image and the results were great! Comparing it to the same photo above, It’s nice to see a noticeable improvement in my post processing skills, both time and tool usage.
I can only imagine that there are people out there that appreciate the original edit. What are your thoughts? Have you noticed your own post processing techniques change or improve over the past few years?
