This image was made over a year ago on one of those evenings that stays in your memory a long time! I wanted to revisit some of the images I made on that winters evening in order to see if the period of time between then and now diminished my overwhelmingly positive attitude towards the evening. Well I can say now, that the experience of revisiting the images and then processing this image has been a valuable experience. It not only forced me to relive the evening, but developed an even deeper appreciation and further stimulated my original fervour towards the sunset shoot.

What is also interesting about the process is the way I now choose and then process the work according to my current creative ideology. Iím sure over the year I have changed as a person which in turn has transformed my creativity and I now see things differently that I probably overlooked before. This very activity almost forced me to reflect on personal development and enables even further stimulation from work that has been developing cobwebs in the depth of my hard drive!

So if you havenít done this for a while, I fully recommend it, itís a win win situation!

Oh yes, Iím not sure if you want to do the same thing and reprocess one of your old images with my assistance, but just to inform you that the date for the "Photoshop for photographers 2011 Bradford University" has had to be rescheduled to the 2nd April. So if you are interested in learning how to process your images to a professional level, please express your interest and I will be happy to book you a place. take a look at my http://scim.brad.ac.uk/?i=20110319 for information and booking details.

Don't you just want to roll down that hill and end up like a snow sausage at the bottom? Interesting points you raise about looking back on your progress/style. Lovely sunset, unusual composition but a strong image with it.

Yes the snow was knee deep and a sledge would have been a cracking ending to the sunset. But I would have had to climb back up again!
