Wow, time certainly flies.
I must admit, this blog has been neglected for the better part of the last 2 years now, simply because between juggling my day job at the bank and family time, I haven’t had the chance to really get out there and shoot. Of course, this is how all hobbies die a slow and painful death - when no matter how much that hobby still interests you, you keep putting it off, and slowly but surely, it gets more and more difficult to get back into it.
At the same time, on a more personal level, I felt like I had hit a bit of a creative rut, when I was actually looking at my own pictures and thinking to myself how bored I was with that look I had been so used to for so long. A part of me was telling me to stick to something familiar, yet I wanted to try something different.
And so, in the interest of keeping my hobby alive, I set out to study the pictures of other photographers I loved, and started thinking of what I liked about their images. Pulling up a recent picture of Loch Ard Gorge which I had visited late last year, I then got to work in Adobe Lightroom, and below you will find the updated result. Honestly, I’m definitely liking the revised edit, but who knows, maybe a few months down the road I’ll find myself in the same situation again.
What do you think? Which edit would you choose?
