How do I enhance colors like this?

The photographer did not use a tripod. I can take great photos, just want to know how to retouch photos to make them clean, clear, vibrant and so on. I want my photos to look just like this:

Re: How do I enhance colors like this?

The best thing to do is get a good camera and learn how to use it, and you wont need to use post processing to achieve results like those.

What are you shooting with?

I use a Nikon D90 with some pretty fast glass, nothing overly extravagant but a solid performing camera with some quality lenses, i can nail out that level of clarity and vibrant almost 100% of the time.

fast glass and Kotuba actions. Please hear this in the best possible way....

But, this is really, really easy to do. No magic at all... I could show you hundreds of MWAC sites that have this.

I think you should aspire higher.

I use a Nikon D200 with a Sigma DG 28-300mm lens. Any changes I should make?

How odd; it is just the link to Texas Pageant Network (where the picture is); something used by 4,000 members, everyday for 7 years.

Did anyone else have a problem?

Maybe your program has a glitch.
