The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Decisions – every day we have to make them, and as a photographer we are even faced with some more. What photos do we publish? Which photos should we delete and when should we at least save them and check them later if they are worthwhile of taking some more space on your hard drive.
With some of the photos we took, we were lucky (“The GOOD”). We had the right camera (or at least one camera) with the right lens, an excellent subject and made the correct settings. However, with most of them something went wrong.

“The GOOD”
it did not need any post processing, may be regarded as a nice subject and create an emotion.


Sometimes it’s just a little error like dismissing the appropriate shutter speed (“The UGLY”), or we don’t find the right perspective, or we have just chosen a subject that’s not evoking any emotions, regardless of what we do (“The BAD”).
It’s not always easy to take a photo of what we see, because we have to find a way to preserve the feeling we had.

“The BAD”
With this photo you could try whatever you want, but it will not get any better..

“The UGLY”,

shot at about 4 am with a lot of wine and only a 1/15 s this photo is blurred,…

…but with the help of post processing,
maybe nice enough to publish it or use it as profile photo for some social network.
The hardest part may be to distinguish them!
