Exposure is everything when it comes to getting excellent color, contrast, dynamic range and a whole lot more.

This year there’s a significant number of top-level domains being added, with a couple now open for registration that may be of interest to photographers:
Even if you have a good .com, I recommend purchasing your name .photography. For example my website is grahamclarkphoto.com, and my .photography version is grahamclark.photography
They look at bit funny at first, and some browsers don’t understand how they should even work, so by putting www. in front of the new domains your browser will understand what’s going on. As a rule it’s always desirable to buy domains as early as possible. These two became available for purchase very recently, so now’s the time!
