Uwe suggested this thread, so here is the idea.
You're out shooting and you come across an interesting subject or landscpe, but maybe the lighting isn't quite right. The composition is great, but it's missing something. You may never get back to this spot, so when I shoot, I am looking for a beautiful subject or landscape with the right composition. I still need a great shot, but I'm not too worried about the light or that perfect moment. Usually, what I do with the layering effects will add that special magic to the image. I love to travel and shoot different things and I believe what I shoot and how I shoot it is the most important part of my work, but I always know that this is just the beginning.
So the idea is to show the stages of an image. Here is the base of my sunflower image. There were many textures and of course retouching too numerous to post.
Hope this is clear. And any suggestions are welcome.
