If at first you don't succeed, it's okay, you don't have to try again as there are usually no second chances anyway. You can fix it through a photo-editing software. Apparently it's normal for serious amateur and professional photographers to do some post-processing work on their images before they publish them online or put them in print, even if they had the perfect composition and the best camera gears.
Today I played around with my new software called Lightroom 3 and I'm convinced that post processing could well be as significant and crucial as the photo-shoot itself. Well, maybe, specially at my beginner's level. I could use all the help. So I purposely overexposed an image of my favorite flower and did a few basic clicks with this photo-editing software and it works really good. This is going to be fun from here on! The only caveat however is that I may have to upgrade my computer to feed this processor-hungry application. Hmmmm...that new Apple Quad-core iMac 27 is looking good. I may have to postpone my next pro lens purchase.
By the way, one image below was taken with a $2300 lens and the other with a $700 lens. Can you tell which is which? Conclusion: With what this photo-editing software can do, I guess I don't need to buy any more pro lens for a while......maybe
