    Same subject taken at 10:32AM is better than one taken at 1:15PM because of the angle of the light.

    Post-processing and good light. Diavonex has posted some excellent examples, and reinforces the role light quality has to play in photography!

    Using a polarizer helps as well I think...

    Polarizer can be use to improve saturation especially in landscape photography.

    Note the word improve. It cannot put colour into a frame where colour is lacking to begin with.

    You can try to get the best exposure, change the colour curve, adjust camera settings. But there will still be a physical limit that the camera can go. Train yourself till you reach that limit. Then you know its time for a new cam or new lenses.

    Same subject with over, correct and under exposure can influence richness of colour.

    Diavonex has found a very strategically placed playground.

    you can find nice grass if you look properly.

    no pro can make brown, tired, dead looking grass look revitalised , believe me

    Its depends on the quality of ambient light you are getting. With strong sunlight, underexposure can yield better tonal range and colour rendition. Especially if the strong light is falling directly onto your subjects.

    Underexposed by 1 stop.


    Underexposed by 2 stops.


    In fact, all photos here were taken at at least 2 stops under.

    Increase contrast and saturation.

    I will choose to do it in Photoshop.
    On body, everything put to neutral.
