but what does this matter in the grand scheming sky, all that i multiply adds up to nothing
one of the most important parts of my workflow when it comes to processing my photos is sleep. regardless of how much time i've spent working on the image, it's always useful to put it away and look at it later with fresh eyes. i have plenty of files on my computer of pictures that i've started work on, but i know require more attention. in today's photo i started off by straightening the image and keeping some of the colours. i saved it but knew it wasn't quite right. looking back on it this evening i decided to revert to the original rotation and desaturate the colours. i then did some selective dodging and burning. also i removed a plane wing and increased the contrast. oh and i did some selective blurring and sharpening and applied a few masked curves. in total there were 15 layers of adjustments. i kinda wanted a little sleep after all of that, but i didn't want to wake up and end up with 30 layers...
