Reworking my favourites

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:

Rose hips.

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.

Uppsala konsert och kongress.

Reflection in a glass wall at the Uppsala concert hall.

On the honeymoon.

One of the picnics we had on our honeymoon on Gotland.

Chevrolet Chevelle.

Here I also thought the cropping was a bit off, so I made it tighter.

What do you think, better or worse?

    Definitely think every photo is better after some processing. I especially like what you did with the last photo, looks fantastic!
