...The camera's auto settings will tend to be too bright and wash out your colors, so bringing that down a bit helps ensure more of the richness of your colors, details, and tonal variations come out. Then crop the pic and you're done. I never edit my pics more than that. /end

But also, you will likely never take a picture of a mini that does it justice. Every miniature I’ve ever seen looks so far superior in person it’s not even funny.

I’m glad you like it! It gets good reviews, but I had to quit halfway through the first episode. I really found the main character/actor unlikeable. I couldn’t imagine watching a whole series with him. :/
