Respect your pixels
Daily I see so many images that have been ruined by heavy handed manipulation. The thing that really makes me sad is when I see a great image, lots of emotion, good light and a powerful composition that has been destroyed by poor editing.
I prefer to subtly enhance an image but keep it real. The example above shows a RAW file out of my camera (Before) and the (After) image following a few minutes of work. It's about gentle touches.
Great images are just like calamari. If you overcook them, they become very tough to get through and unpalatable.
My plea: respect your pixels.
