Some wanted to know what before and after look like when I edit a shot

Some wanted to know what before and after look like when I edit a shot.. below is a pretty decent example of post process editing I normally do to an image to make it more "interesting" in my minds eye… Usually 2-3 layers in photoshop and at least a filter or two. But normally I do not stick to stock settings in those filters and tweak them to each image. This does two things, 1) Hopefully makes my images different than others and 2) hopefully makes my images different than others…

    The final image adds quite a bit more mystery, but still leaves the raw beauty of the subject. Very interesting.

    I like SOOC which i would guess is on the left. Perhaps just a tad less warm.

    The interesting part is that I would never display these together so the viewer would never really have a choice per say… But I also find it fascinating why people choose one image over another…

    I tend to make all my images slightly warm. I've tried making them cooler, but it just doesn't work for me. So I would choose the SOOC in this instance. Mostly because the edited image invokes feelings of moroseness in me, where the SOOC image feels to me more like a lazy morning. That would be my "why", here.

    siempre termino editando. Según estos comentarios que leo acá no queda claro a simple vista cuál es la imagen editada. Es decir, según el ojo del espectador ambas son muy buenas. Eso es mas que una edición habla del disparo del fotógrafo..Muy bueno

    I myself would like the edited one more if it were a little less blue. I find the bluish tint on the picture to be distracting. Aside from that, I like the darker tone. It looks like the light is coming from a window. Makes me think there is a curtain partly open.

    +Graciela Quiroga So much is personal preference in photography – it is very hard to fully understand what the viewer likes or wants…
