Why do I enjoy processing so much?

Hi everyone,

I spend a lot of time working on my images. Not only do I find it both therapeutic and stimulating which is, I guess,Β  another way of saying that I enjoy it, but I also find it fascinating what the software is capable of doing. Here’s a fairly dull shot of the river, one frame from an HDR, unprocessed except for basic lens corrections.

Here’s the same scene after I’ve done some quick processing, a bit more atmospheric and appealing I hope. I wouldn’t regard this a finished work as I’d work on it a bit more before I’d be totally happy with it.

Kind regards,
