    The greens in your photographs always come out so vivid and strong. I love the colour tone that you use..

      Thank Photoshop for that. The way I edit my color shots is influenced by my experience with color transparency film, particularly Fuji’s Velvia brand. IIRC, Fuji created it as a “successor” of sorts for Kodak’s now-defunct Kodachrome brand. Both are high-saturation films, so while they’re generally unsuitable for portraits or other photos featuring people, they deliver some stunning colors in pretty much everything else. Even using the “More Vivid” color setting on my DSLR, I still have to bump up the saturation a bit in post-processing to get the results close to what the Velvia film delivers naturally. The end result is a photo where the colors are damn near “screaming” at you, but at the same time, in many cases, I think this is closer to what I see before I take a photo – or what I want to see.
