"Once upon a theme, somethings are worth continuing"
Continuing the theme of older images retouched with some new found editing magic skills, this is a favourite from #padarisland
in #komodonationalpark #indonesia
It was a short, but in places quite steep and slippery slope getting to this high point, not all of the group decided to make the effort. With views like this, I think it was a mistake.
Panoramic views over the beaches, bays and hills of the island in the hazy evening light just before sunset, were our reward for making the trek. Even without a camera it was worth taking the time and effort to climb.
There were a few that ventured up, that were nervous on the narrow, rocky paths, needing some help and encouragement, but pretty sure they were pleased they did.
As I've mentioned recently, been investing some time learning some new post-capture editing techniques and putting the new skills to use on some favourite images.
If you look back through this gallery, you'll find the original image. Why not compare the two and let me know in the comments which you prefer?
Wouldn't you climb a hill for this view?
It's important not only to use newly acquired skills and techniques to work on new projects, but also to improve old portfolio images. These are the ones used to find work, impress friends and rekindle memories, so improving them and showing them at their best will be is beneficial.
TIP: Only carry the equipment you absolutely need, don't let a heavy pack or bulky tripod discourage you from making a climb or trekking to a location for a shot. If the amount of kit carried is an encumberance, that may result in missing an opportunity, something has to give. Reduce weight, travel as light as possible.
