DO OVER - PROCESSING MATURITY
I had posted the first version of this image in 2015. The popular photographic location known as Oxbow Bend. The first time I posted this image I used a 3-image HDR process. I had already gotten over the power of HDR and I went for the "natural" look. But this week, I looked back at some of my images from less than two years ago and wondered, "What was I thinking!"
So I went back into the archives and worked on the normal exposure shot from that bracketed series. I then worked the image in Lightroom CC and finished it in OnOne Effects. What I think I produced was a much better overall look. It's closer to what I saw the day I shot this. Thank goodness for digital and the ability to have a "do over".
