Ben Starav
(Original Processing)

This is an interesting photograph for me because initially I completely missed the composition! When I returned from the trip – which had been fairly wet and uneventful, photography wise, I’d skimmed through the shots. This didn’t really leap out at me. I’d done my normal DRI processing but wasn’t impressed with how it turned out.

Many moons ago I read a Q&A with New Zealand landscape photographer Andris Apse. Among the things he talked about was, and I paraphrase, the importance of not deciding which image to keep until months after it was shot and processed. The idea being that you're likely to be more critical when you don't have the same emotional connection to the piece because you've just spent lots of time working on it (shooting and processing)
