Here's the thing. I'm a once-and-done type of girl. I rarely write rough drafts. I write it once, get it out of my system, and I'm done.
The same notion applies to photography. I process it once and I'm done. I don't go back and tweak. I don't start over. I work on it once, get it the way I want it. And then I'm finished. Time to move on to the next image.
Is this the right way to go about things? Probably not. But it's how I work, for right or for wrong. And it generally works for me.
Yet I broke my own rules....
I liked the first one just fine. But then I just had to try it again. And now? Ugh. I like the first one...sometimes. I like the second one...sometimes. Maybe I should've just left well enough alone once I finished the first time.
Or maybe I should have just merged the two of them together...
