(At least) two ways to get there..

You can get there at least two ways, during post processing and/or during shooting.

The pic below was a bit blah. Here's what I did to increase color without increasing noise.

  1. Open image in PhotoShop, or in any editor that supports layers
  2. Once image is open, duplicate the layer
  3. On duplicated layer, increase saturation to, say, 80%
  4. On duplicated layer, guassian blur, 40px (or so)
  5. Switch duplicate layer blend mode to "Color"
  6. Set opacity of duplicate layer to 40%, go from there
  7. That's it.
