During my photographic journey I have gone through many stages. In some of them the photographic edition was more than editing, in others it was a basic development, with the necessary adjustments of contrasts and perhaps some crop.
Although it is true that when I feel more satisfied is when the photo leaves the camera almost finished, then I feel that I have done my job well.
The most drastic retouches used to be done more in the past, for several reasons. I took many more photos, sometimes without having a clear criterion of what I wanted or without knowing how to do it better, or just for fun, there was a time when I didn’t mind spending hours in front of the screen.
Nowadays, I take fewer photos and may be my creativity is not up to the standards of other times. Lately, I almost always settle for what I see, it will be the age or that my photography vision has changed…
In recent times, the most drastic changes I usually make are trimming to square format and converting to black and white. As in this case, where, in my opinion, the color did not contribute anything and cut the area below seemed necessary.
