Recently I have begun the task (albeit slowly) of cleaning up my Lightroom Catalogues. I have loads of rubbish in there and all these images are beginning to weigh on my conscience. Some people do this clean up activity almost as soon as they have downloaded the images to their computer but this doesn’t seem to work for me. I find I need some space between the shoot and the review, in fact I often find I need 6 months before I can appreciate some of the images.
If I try to do this exercise too soon I find that I delete images that have a subtle appeal and quite often grow on you. I also find that I keep the images that are high impact, which are the ones I frequently tire of quickly.
I’m currently working through my Canon G16 files from a shoot on Helm Crag that I did in winter. I’m now finding that I really like some of the images that I shot including this one. I’m also finding that the new Photo Merge feature in Lightroom CC a real bonus as it’s encouraging me to group each series of Panorama images into Stacks. I can then quickly produce a merged Panorama and include it with the Stack. It’s really helping my review process.
I hope you like the image and have a great weekend.
