Over time I have realized that during my first few years of digital photography I was very careful when editing my photos. Meanwhile I have become more and more daring with the contrast, saturation and a whole bunch of other sliders.
So I decided to go through all my favourites and re-do them as I would have done if I had taken them today. Some photos have made me wonder why on earth I put them in this collection in the first place, and have been brutally removed.
I have come about half way, but I won’t upload them to my Flickr account until I’m done. But here are a few before-and-afters of the photos I’ve done so far:
Apart from lacking in contrast and colour, I found that many photos felt too warm. So I have nudged the white balance slider down on quite a few.

Here I also thought the cropping was a bit off, so I made it tighter.
What do you think, better or worse?
