It’s been just over a year since I began dabbling in HDR so I’ve decided to go back and see if I’ve improved since then (September of 2012). This was one of the first images I ever processed using HDR techniques and I look at it now and think “what the heck was I thinking?!” There are so many things that make me cringe about this image and it’s a good thing that I still have the original RAW files so I can try again. If there’s one thing I’ve definitely learned, it’s don’t process/post-process too soon. Be patient with the images and take my time. Possibly to the point that I don’t even look at the images that same day.
