Here Are 5 Signs You're Overediting Your Photos (VIDEO)

One of the most difficult things with photo editing, according to landscape photographer Mark Denney, is "knowing when to say when." Truer words may never have been spoken when it comes to powerful software such as Photoshop.

In the below video, Denney points out "5 signs you're overediting landscape photos," in an effort to help photographers learn to resist the urge to overdo it.

"The signs that you're over-editing landscape photos are not always easy to see but knowing which signs to specifically look out for will certainly help you achieve a better edited photo," Denney says. "When I first started editing my images in Lightroom, I would always end up pushing my photos way too far from a post-processing perspective and would usually end up with images that contained many if not all of the five signs of an over-edited photo. Some of these signs are more easily identifiable than others, but any one of them can turn your great photo into an over-edited nightmare."

Here are the five signs of overediting that Denney discusses in his video:

#1 Unrealistic Highlights & Shadows

#2 Adding Too Much Contrast

#3 Over-Sharpening & Clarity

#4 Extreme Vignetting

#5 Oversaturated Colors

As Denney explains, the tips covered in the below tutorial are not solely for landscape photography but can be applied to any style of photography. Check it out and go visit Denney's YouTube channel for more great photography tutorials.
