Sorry for the dumb title, but sometimes these things get the best of me. This image was originally destined for the recycle bin when I first looked at it, but upon a second review and some processing, I ended up making it into something I like. For this very reason, I rarely delete photos immediately when I first load them on the computer. Sometimes it takes a second or third look before I see an image’s true potential.
For this image, it just need some desaturation and some heavy vignetting to get to the vision I originally had when I pressed the shutter. Now this philosophy means I have a lot of images on my hard drive that I’ll probably never process or post, but it does provide the opportunity to review older shoots, and pull out a few gems that may have eluded me the first time around.
