So I have been doing photography for a couple of years now and I am getting the hang of taking the pictures but when I compare them to others on, let's say Flickr I find that no mater what I do, my pictures' colours look like junk, all washed out and dull even when I take them in the sun. Now I know real photographers never just take a picture and that is it so I have been reading around and found that editing the pictures colours and such might be able to help. What I would like to know is what should I be doing to the pictures every time I off-load them to my computer? What types of thing should I fix and edit with my pictures to get them looking more professional. If you want to take a look at some of my pictures to give me a better idea you can find them at http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulvolk/ Thanks so much for the help.
