The Forgotten Image

Challenge #3 in the Photography is like a box of chocolates... series. Hosted by Phil Reese.
Challenge has finished
How many times have we just overlooked a particular image or series after a long day of shooting? How often does procrastination get the best of us? Sometimes we just don't see the result we expected, while other times we aren't looking with the right eyes. Maybe we just didn't have the software or processing equipment at the time to realize our vision. Whatever the reason, it's time to pull out old photos that you haven't yet processed. Process them using whatever current technique you like (subtle sharpening to full blown HDR is fine), and give life to a photo that you'd otherwise forgotten. I'm not talking about processing a shot from a series that you already liked and had processed several of; this one must be from something you completely overlooked. Note the old capture date rule.
