I have been enjoying my photography for a few months now, but I still don't really know what I should be doing regarding image editing. This is my current work flow. Take photo's Upload to iMac Delete the really bad ones Upload favorites to Flickr Current software I have is the following; iPhoto DXO Optics Pro 8 DXO Film Pack 4 DXO Viewpoint OnOne Perfect Photo Suit 7.5 Nik Complete Collection (which I don't use as it's not standalone). I realise I need to get either Lightroom or Aperture, but I don't really enjoy this side of my photography as much as the taking photos. I never really know if what I'm doing is correct or not. Here is an example of a shot I have not edited. Here is the edited version. I have cropped it and tweaked it a bit in Optics Pro. Have I made it better or just different? What would you pro's have done differently? There are loads of tutorials on YouTube but sometimes when I play with an image, I just seem to make it worse, so just bin the project. Any help greatly appreciated.
