    To edit or not edit

    I am after options on whether to edit these two photos I took on my recent Central Australia trip.

    The first one is a reflection on the Thomson River at Longreach, not sure if I should try to remove the patch of sunlight off the water.

    The second is of Uluru, There was a fire on the left hand side causing smoke.

    I am not sure how to edit these images or even if I should try.

    Nice shots.

    Personally I wouldn't touch the river shot, Its nice as is.

    The Uluru shot I couldn't tell you how to remove the smoke but probably wouldn't remove it in any case. You've captured your sunset as it was on the day and there are millions of shots without that in it so it sets your shot apart. I would level the horizon though but that's all I'd do to it, it's a nice shot.

    I look forward to seeing more shots from your trip.

    Cheers Nate

    I agree with Nate, however I might lift the light and vibrancy levels on Uluru just to make it stand out a little more.

    As you allow editing, I've just given them the basic treatment I would give them.

    Longreach' just a frame and signature:

    Uluru, straighten horizon and lift the levels. Ad frame and signature.

    Re: To edit or not edit

    Thanks for the comments, it goes with my general idea not to over edit images. That said you always want them to look the best they can.

    I should add that both these shots were taken on my Samsung S9.
