I'm curious about what others do out there as far as processing goes.
What's the minimum? What might be the "extras" you do compared to your competition, or even the hobbyist/FB PhotoG.
I am still in the starting stages, but I feel like I take WAY more time to at least do all the small things, i.e. straighten horizon, white balance if needed, clone out bugs, or other things, etc.
I'm seeing a lot of this stuff overlooked by quite busy photoG's. Yet they're praised and praised. Almost seems like they edit only for an image no larger than 800px wide. I won't even go into the exaggerated edits.
