Every so often it is a good idea to check back through your old photo files to see what you’ve missed. The winter is a perfect time of year to do this, especially if you live at the beach.
As I look back through my older stuff, I find photos I didn’t have the skill to fix up at the time, or photos that have just slipped through the cracks. There are also a lot of those that when I see them again I ask myself what in the world was I thinking when I developed it. As my tastes and skills mature I’ve found a lot of photos that badly need reworking. Over the years the software I use has continually been improving along with my skills. This means it’s now possible to develop images I wouldn’t have considered working on years ago.
Here is one photo I didn’t have the ability or skills to develop correctly years ago. Luckily I photographed the shot in the raw file format which enabled me to take an image with very little detail in the sky and develop it correctly.
Summer Storm was photographed in 2008 and developed in 2011.
