Yes indeed. In fact Eric Kim (like him or not) recommends not to look at or edit your images for a good number of months from the time of capture. Reason being, of course, human emotion can cloud objective judgement whether an image is worthy of sharing. If the photographer can find an independent critique then all the better. Of course if you shoot in analogue with latent images, then it generally enforces a time delay between capture and viewing.
