Editing. Ugh (D3S images)

Good Morning All,


Having just returned from a second journey to Haiti my image bank has swollen to nearly 8K images from the combined trips. The arduous task of editing always follows a trip like this and - I always struggle.

I know the ability to ruthlessly edit one's images is an important aspect of photography and honestly - for me - it's one of the most difficult. Anyone else feel like this? Especially as the story one's trying to tell evolves over multiple years and multiple trips. I rarely irrevocably toss an image unless it's an obvious miss or unsuccessful/unchosen member of large burst. This leads to a pretty huge nut to haul around over the years with backup/cataloging, etc. - but one I happily accept.

Regardless, I've begun a composite gallery (above) that will assume a rather fluid state over the years to come. I hope you enjoy a few keepers from this last trip - all with the D3S. This camera continues to impress me every time I have the privilege of shooting it.

D3S, 17-35@28mm, AP +2/3EV 1/160@f5.6, ISO800

D3S, 17-35@20mm, AP +1/3EV 1/40@f4, ISO6400

D3S, 28-70@228mm, AP +1/3EV 1/30@f5.6, ISO200

D3S, 50/1.4D, AP +1/3EV 1/640@f4, ISO800

D3S, 70-200@135mm, AP-0EV 1/250@f4, ISO200
