and i can hardly stand it anymore.

shall we continue on with Things That Perplex Me?

 

SOOC vs. Processed

 

so, getting a great shot that's Straight Out Of Camera is something that is sought after. hell, i've had a few and i've been delighted!

 

like this one. i hardly edited this photo at all. and it's one of my very, very favorites i've ever taken. although i think that has more to do with my obsession with Seattle and urban skylines.

 

however, i'm a bit of a saturation-slash-color-slash-magnify every damn detail whore so most of my images have been processed ten times over and back again.

 

this one? i processed it all to hell. check out the unedited version.

 

 

i think i'm infinitely more pleased by having processed a shot into something spectacular (she says, humbly), than having caught something amazing that can go straight from camera to screen.

 

perhaps it's just a matter of taste.
