I don't know how everybody else manages their workflow, but typically mine goes something like this:

1) copy all the RAW files to my hard drive.
2) preview the new shots with C1 Pro.
3) convert the ones that I want to work with and save them in a folder called 'latest'.
4) import into Photoshop.
5) save the image and put it up on chromasia.
6) delete the converted images that I don't think I can do anything with.

And by and large that's pretty much routine. Occasionally though there are a few shots that just get left in my 'latest' folder. Some I'm not sure about, some I end up putting up because I don't manage to take anything better, but it's rare that any of them get left there for more than a couple of days.

This shot though has been sitting around for the past couple of weeks, and I don't know why I haven't put it up, nor why I haven't deleted it. I initially overlooked at it because I wasn't keen on the flare, but the more I've looked at it the less decided I've become. So, on the basis that I haven't managed to bin it I thought I'd put it up instead as I think there's something about it that makes it worth posting, but I'm just not sure what.
