    Image editing is great fun, and is part of the process – just as the darkroom is part of the process with film photography. However, in the digital age, a professional or advanced amateur might shoot 20,000 images a year, so sorting through them all and editing those that survive can be a nightmare.

    For my wildlife photography I typically take about 50 versions of each image (bracketing exposures, changing angles, experimenting with shutter/aperture/ISO combinations, getting the timing perfect) so the weeding and post-processing becomes a very time-consuming process!
