There’s A Lesson To Be Learned

Today’s post is a bit different from the usual or at least from what I have planned. My original intention was to post today the follow-up of last week’s post, or to be more correct, the first post in a series of posts in which I introduce and/or write about some of my favourite places. The post was written (more than 1300 words strong and counting) a while ago and the images to go with it, were naturally taken even longer ago. And this is where the whole thing started… Some of those images are by now almost three years old, and while already processed, I had this Let’s see what happens if…” kind-of-moment and started to play around with newer and updated tools and techniques on those images. I’m talking here mainly talking about newer version of Lightroom with it’s lens corrections and new processing workflow’s and techniques that I learned in the meanwhile. In fact, it all started with only one image and then I discovered another and… I guess you get where this is headed… and you are right. I’m now in the middle of the process of re-visiting and re-discovering and re-processing these images. This surely will keep me busy for another day or two until I have them all done. The good thing is that there’s also a lesson to be learned in this, actually there are two:

  • never throw images away (I never did this anyway, but it is always a good to mention this)
  • re-visiting the archives, and especially looking at the images once neglected might pay off, and if it’s only to have some post-processing fun while waiting for better conditions.

Here a quick sneak-peek of things to come and I hope to have the post and the gallery out as soon as possible. So… and now I’m getting myself another Lattè and dive back into Lightroom and into processing mood.
