That was a really helpful episode. Good to concentrate in some pictures on the crop, in others on the exposure and sometimes „I couldn’t resist“ 😄 Due to fact that there are some photos left you could do a volume 2?

Brilliant video and learned a lot on the thought process. It really shows that once composition is nailed, there isn’t a lot that needs to be done from an editing standpoint.

Nigel - thank you so much for editing my submission (Tom Poundall here 😊). I picked this photo as I thought it would enable you to play with the quality of Nikon's raw files (which is excellent to say the least). Photo was taken after a long day of hiking and without a tripod for context. Now that I am back in the UK, I hope our paths meet in the future 😎🙌

Learned some great tips. I never thought of saturating colors separately. So much more control than sat slider. I saturate one or two but never bring the entire saturation panel up together. Light bulb.

That was helpful, thanks. I tend to put 99% of my effort into the shot and 1% into the edit… and while that’s the correct way around at least, it’s useful to get tips on the latter. An area I’d love to hear more about in future tutorials is colours and colour theory/balance. I suspect lots of us spend our editing time focussing on exposure and details, while forgetting to do anything much about the colours other than tweaking the saturation slider!

Great video as always. Thinking about the ones you cropped a lot, totally agree with what you did but noticed you had the crop tool open (not using aspect ratio) and wondered if that would affect the ability to print the images, that is, 7x5, 18x12 etc. I always struggle with apsect ratios and printing. Be good to have your view. Thanks Chris.

Hi Nigel, a quick question on crop ratios. I always feel I should maintain a regular print ratio/crop size whereas you just go off piste and irregular. Would love your input. PS: sorry about the skiing reference ;)

And that’s the beauty of photography highlighted in your video. We all have our own personal perspective, so it’s interesting when someone else crops a shot and makes a new shot from an existing one. Not saying it’s better or worse, as that’s always an individual’s taste, but I love that it can be just so different. 👍🏼

I notice when you crop you don’t keep an aspect ratio but rather “free-form crop”. Be curious to see your process someday for preparing an image for printing to fit a standard paper size for example. Great tips on this video thanks!

I really enjoyed this Nigel, some of the crops revealed a stunning image hidden within but I have a question for you, actually it may be more about physics than photography but I'm sure you'll enjoy that too. I have noticed that when I shoot scenes that include a rainbow, the area outside and beyond the rainbow is always darker than the inside it, this was noticeable on Phil Harland's image and I hoped you would bring it up during your edit. Do you know the reason for this phenomenon? Thanks, Wayne.

Vor 10 Monate
Phil Harland
Phil Harland

@Nigel Danson Thanks for selecting my image for commenting on - when I processed the image I did do some editing on the rainbow to bring out the colours better - I find editing rainbows quite hard to both get them to stand out more and look natural. On the composition it would definitely have worked better had I moved a little further along as you showed - nice to see on your quick edit how that would have balanced it - I was already moving in that direction but grabbed the shot before the rainbow faded so didn't make it that far...!

Vor 10 Monate
Nigel Danson
Nigel Danson

Thanks and it is due to the scattering / refraction of light and angles from the droplets of water. If you see two rainbows you will see a dark area between them. The physics is actually quite complicated but that is the essence.

Wow it was great to see you edit my Neist point image! I didn't know about the warp correction in Photoshop and definitely struggled with the wonky lighthouse after straightening the horizon (lightroom distortion correction is a bit limited). I think it might have something to do with the lens profile correction thats pulling the image back into the centre (to counteract the barrel distortion of the Tamron 17-28mm).
