The camera, at times, can catch more than what the eye can see. Like the milkway, for example. I don’t over saturate or over HRD my photos, I try and keep them as close to what I see as possible.
I played with my settings and let in more/less light for different shots.
This sometimes allows me to get a deeper color in my photos without having to drag those sliders way over into “that’s to much” land.
