One of my most favorite websites (tmelive.com) includes a “daily critique” feature that uses a recently taken photography, and utilizing the “language of design”, discusses the strengths and merits of an image. Occasionally, they demonstrate ways to reinterpret or “improve” that image with possible editing enhancements and techniques. I’ve learned a tremendous amount though these lessons and examples.
I think of the capture component as “farming”, and the post-production component as “cooking”. You need both good farming AND good cooking to create a great meal. A good capture AND good post-processing will give you something you'll be proud of, and proud of sharing.
