Through the Years: A Look at Past Photos

As I startup my blog again, I thought it’d be a good idea to see how my skills have grown and changed over the years and how I would edit differently.

The unedited shot (2010):
unedited-7861

I edited this 5 years ago (2010):
2010nov02_MG_7861

This is how I edited it today (2015):
2015Nov02_MG_7861

Seems I lean towards cleaner edits these days and not so much of the dark/vignette look.

I started with a raw file in Lightroom, exported as a jpg to Photoshop and used the plugin PhotoTools for the final look.

For the 2015 edit I adjusted these values in Lightroom:
white balance
temperature
tint
brightness
contrast
highlight recovery
exposure
black clipping
saturation
vibrance

Which version do you like more?
