When do you usually draw the line in not post processing too much over a photo. I recently ran into a lot of needs in post processing as some of my photos are shot in the dark after sunset and hence without post processing, the picture are quite boring and likely sit untouched in my ignore-bin. But once I try the latest LR 5.3 release candidate, I am totally hooked on the various preset color and b&w filters. Can you all comment on how you think of post processing and when you think you rather not push too far. I usually PP with the following objectives: Bring out the best in the picture Hide the mistakes as much as I can Change something boring to interesting Here are few pictures that I think I may over-do on the processing. I have this off focus scene that I post process it to be like a painting. The focus is still off no matter what I do to the picture but the painting like impression take away the pain in the off focus shooting for me #1 Horizon K-5 and Tamron 135mm f/2.5 adaptall-2 (03B) I used one of the Cross Processing bring out the contrast but I may have overdone as the water never look that blue in the real scene. What would you have done differently?
