Sometimes it’s worth taking a look at photos you previously rejected or passed off as “so-so” because things change. For example, your ability to work with post-processing software, your eye for cropping and composition, and your appreciation for subjects you may have previously shot.
Here is a great example. I “recovered” this photo that I took in La Jolla, CA in 2009 of sea-lions near Children’s Pool Beach. Since originally downloading and proofing this photo I have learned a lot more (and I have much, much more to learn) about post processing RAW files. So from time to time, take a look at those “rejected” photos. You might find something there you enjoy.
