The Power of Revisiting - Post Production

© Stan Olszewski / SOSKIphoto

Earlier this week, I talked about the power of revisiting a location, a person, a food, whatever it may be.  We see something, we shoot it, time passes, we revisit.  With the passing of time, something changes.  It may be personal or location based.  In Ludwig's case, it was both.  In the 25 years after the Chernobyl explosion, people aged, children were born, buildings were abandoned, the list goes on.  Ludwig developed as a photographer.  He found new tools and techniques, but more importantly found new visions to tell the Chernobyl story as he saw it.

I bring this up because I came across a photo I took in October 2010 during Fleet Week in San Francisco, CA, while browsing my archives.  I like the image compositionally but felt it was lacking pop. The image is fairly simple, a Blue Angel is dropping out of the sky leaving a white tracer.  I have developed new post processing techniques and have a better understanding of the tools available in Lightroom 3, between the day I took the photo and made today's edit.
