Wow, works like a charm to warm up the color on a flat photo

This one works like a charm. I just tried it on a dreary low saturation photo taken on a foggy day and it worked great. Really warmed up the color. Thanks for the tip.

This is to enhance the colors of the image especially taken with
low to mid end digital cameras, generally suffering from poor color
saturation.
Typical adj. layer with hue/saturation would result in ugly
artifacts. This method might be a better alternative.

Enriches the colors in otherwise bland images without the
accompanying artifacts.
