When I first start editing this photo, I didn't think there was much potential in it, but as I played around with it and finally went to black and white, I began to really love it, so I stashed it away as I do sometimes to come back to it later and see how I felt then. I think I like it even more now.
I learned to do that as an art major in college. Sometimes you get attached to a photo so much that you miss the little details, and sometimes the same thing happens to a photo that you become DEtached from. I think in many cases it is a good practice to walk away from it for a day or two then come back to it with fresh eyes then see how you feel. Many times you will see it in an entirely different light. What happens to me in some cases is that I will edit a photo, kind of like it, and then put it away for a few months. In the meantime I have learned new and better techniques or tricks and when I come back to that photo I see that I can make it even better through applying what I've learned over that course of time. Then again you come to the conclustion that some photos are just useless no matter how many times you look at it and some are just too good to put away. The best part is that it's your artform and you can decide the best process for you.
