Every once in awhile I'm inspired to go back to some old RAW photos and reimagine some of my favorite photos. Not that the original photos were bad, but with a combination of editing skills that I've improved over the years and software developments I can really push where things were originally at. If you're not a photographer, a RAW file is what's considered a 'digital negative' or unprocessed film. In essence, it's a minimally interpreted file that allows you the most creative freedom when turning your often boring out of camera shot into how you envisioned it. For that reason, how you like to process these files can change over the years as your taste and styles change.
