I love the editing process! Maybe even a tiny bit more that capturing. It lets me dial-in on my vision after I've clicked the shutter. Or discover and share something I didn't see. And, of course sometimes turn a bad shot around.
One area where I find choosing hard is black and white conversions. Some images just don't work. They just don't have the tonal range. Other times, it seems like color tells the story better.
This image is one that sits on the fence for me. I love this. I think it simple and there is no doubt the face is what I want you to see. I can also pull in that light wash on the left.
I am thinking the color is strong, maybe stronger? But it feels more busy. I could see where some color adjustments, dodging and burning, creative blurring and a vignette might help with focusing the viewer.
What do you think?
What makes an image a better candidate for conversion to you?
