I am often asked what the original image actually looked like before I decided to transform it into the image I really had in mind when I reviewed the Raw. My main photo editor is Adobe Photoshop CC and a limited number of plugins: DxO Viewpoint to address perspective problems; DxO/Nik Collection for B&W conversions, Denoising, & the occasional color effect, Luminar4 for Sunrays & the occasional sky replacement; and finally ParticleShop for the occasional brush effect.
I therefore decided to devote a page to this exercise we'll call "From SOOC to My Vision"
Appropriately, I called the page simply "Before & After".
