Old Images- New Life with Current Software & More Knowledge

Back in the spring of 2008 I participated in a Photo Workshop up in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park and other areas close by in TN with Tony Sweet.  I was pretty disappointed when I got home and had a chance to view the many images I made on my desktop.   I had a few that were OK but not as many as I had thought I would have once I did my post processing with Lightroom 1 and Photoshop. 
Last week I decided to go back and take a look at those images in Lightroom 3 and I was very surprised to see that the changes in Lightroom's image processing of NEF files made a big difference in the preview images.  With some tweaking in Lightroom and then some work with Viveza 2 I brought those images really to life. 
Moral of the story, due to improvements in the available software and in your knowledge over time...go back to those old images and see what you can do with them.  There may be some treasures back there!!

To see some of the other images I updated and gave a new life to, please check out my website. 
That's all for now!
