    color not sharp:



    color sharp:



    solution:



    jokes aside; are you talking about:

    a) sharpness
    b) contrast - which can make a picture look sharper
    c) or something else

    perhaps if you elaborate on what you mean we could answer the question better, i don't think color sharpness is an official term for anything.

    well, which imaging program do you have?

    contrast can be controlled by the contrast tool, that's the easiest, but the least amount of control.

    there are also:

    1) curves
    2) levels
    3) burn/dodge work
    4) layer work (based on layer type)

    and many many more!

    hi bro,
    what's your point? colours are dull/not vivid?
    in such case you can try adjusting some settings in your camera.
    but the camera won't let you tweak those settings if you were shooting in auto modes(other than P, Av, Tv, M).
    if you are using Canon, see it in the picture style menu. you can + the contrast and/or saturation.
    if you are using Nikon, it's in optimize image(picture control) under shooting menu.
    i don't know other systems
    in fact, your shooting condition, using high ISO..etc..and many others might affect the colors of your pic. many variables to discuss.
    the best is to post your pic so that other experienced bros out there will further advise.
    cheers.
