Don't know what it's like for you but when I have to reprint an image, I often want to see if I can do it better. With the tin shed image I restarted from the raw file and am quite pleased with the result.

So much for digital meaning nothing ever changes.

I have the same response to revisiting my prior images. I would like to think that this is a meaningful effort, although painters seem to warn that it's easy to tinker with an image to no ultimate purpose. Never the less, I find it almost impossibel to look at an older image and not find something you would like to "improve". To take advantage of the option to revise does require that we are systematic in our digital workflow.

I suspect that the passing of time cuases one to see the image form a different point of view than when originally edited. As I browse my catalog of images over the last few years - I have found myself inspired to edit some images because I see something different in them now than when first captured and post processed. Sometimes it is further refining and at other times it is a completely different vision for the final image.
I think our emotional state of mind plays a significant role in re-edits...sometimes not for the better.
