Photos Before and After My Edits

I thought it might be interesting to compare my before and after results of what I do to my photos. The photo on the left is what I downloaded from the camera. The only edits I have made are to reduce the size to 1000 pixels wide and compressed it so it is easier to download.

The photo on the right is after I’ve tweaked it some. I used LightMachine to lighten the shadows, knock down the highlights a smidgeon, increased both the color saturation and the contrast a bit and increased the photo’s sharpness. Then I applied one of my edges.

What do you think of the differences? Better or not?

The tweaked one is the best of the two. I really like the edges you are using.

I too, obviously, am fond of them. I am also very fond of LightMachine.
