As I recently posted in my journal on here, I have been doing a lot of re-edits of older shots of mine. Some which were very well received by friends and family, and online. But knowing what I know now, I just know that I can get more out of some of these older shots and present them in a way that is more in keeping with the style I am trying to develop as well as make them more pleasing to look at.
So, this is a shot that I first posted last August, and have since gone back and re-edited to retain more detail as well as give the image more pop, and really make it stand out as a shot that truly belongs in my portfolio.
This is the old image for reference. I would love to hear your thoughts, both about the image in general and also about the new edit vs the old edit.
For those interested about the location, this is just upstream from Purakaunui Falls in the Catlins, South Island, New Zealand. Taken during my trip there in May 2012. This jungle setting was a short 5 minute walk from rolling pastures and seemed completely out of place considering where we just were a few minutes earlier.
