I sometimes hear my wife refer to spring cleaning but spring is a busy time in the outdoors so I have decided to set some time aside this winter for clean-up. File clean-up.
I'm a procrastinator and somewhat of a hoarder so tackling my image files has looked like a daunting task. Instead of ruthlessly deleting images immediately after downloading I usually only delete the absolute blown shots and process the best; leaving hundreds, no thousands of images I will never use cluttering up my hard drives. So I have declared this winter, Clean-up Winter!
In doing so I am getting to review all of my image collection and finding some overlooked gems mixed in. There was never any doubt about the first image posted above being a keeper but the second; it deserved a second look.
We are usually more critical of our own work than anyone else, but I like that second photo. The low light gives it a nice feel.
I started doing some image clean up today. I try to delete the bad ones as soon as I download them, but it doesn't always happen. I spent some time categorizing my images to make them easier to find. My problem is backing up my computer to my external hard drive - I don't do it as often as I should.
I agree they are both great images. Love the "halo" on the second one.
Very nice, but I really like the composition and the "uncluttered" background in the second. Keep delighting us!
The second image deserves more than a second look...
Sounds like we work in much the same way when it comes to processing photos. I'm trying to clean things up as I shift everything to my new computer. It should only take another year or so.....
