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!
