hey guys,

I used to be on anet quit a bit, trying to get back into it and I can't seem to get any images accepted these days. Just asking what everyone's workflow might be? Cropping, Sharpening, etc.....

Eric - good to see you. What are you using for post-processing?

I shoot RAW, so it goes something like this:

RAW Editing in Canon DPP or Adobe Camera RAW (for noisy shots):
1.) Levels (brightness, contrast) adjustment.
2.) White balance.
3.) General noise reduction if necessary.
4.) Export to full-size JPEG.

JPEG Editing in Photoshop:
1.) Straighten.
2.) Crop.
3.) Levels tweaks.
4.) Color tweaks.
5.) Resize.
6.) Sharpen.
7.) Any local noise reduction if necessary.
8.) Remove dust spots.

Mine is something like this:

RAW editing:
1.) White balance
2.) Exposure
3.) Contrast
4.) Saturation
4.) Noise reduction (if needed)
5.) Correct for vignetting (if needed)

JPG editing:
1.) Level
2.) Crop
3.) Resize
4.) Check noise (fix if needed)
3.) Check for dust (fix if needed)
4.) Check contrast (adjust if needed)
5.) Check color/saturation (adjust if needed)
6.) Selective sharpening (deselecting sky etc.)

I normally shoot in JPG

1.) Colour & contrast adjustments
2.) Check for dustspots
3.) Crop & level (in one step)
4.) Resizing
5.) Noise-Reduction (if needed)
6.) selective Sharpening

So pretty much the same as others and apart from sharpening the order isn't that important.

But my guess is that your workflow is not that different, after all you have a pretty impressive gallery!
Maybe you could post some examples of your rejected shots?
