    colour looks fine to me, calibrate your monitor, adjust your camera settings for a little more sat and away ya go.

    Looks like you could use a levels and/or curves adjustment to boost contrast.

    I like the second one except the wires are a little distracting... Great shot though

    Check your white balance settings on your camera. You could help it along with software - mind me editing your pic? I can show you. It looks OK though there ain't much wrong with the colour.

    Dare I suggest Rule of thirds... Draw a naughts and crosses (Tic Tac Toe ?) board on the screen (Mentaly). And where the lines intersect, put your point of interest there.. also in depth.. Foreground, Middle ground and back ground...
    Diagonals lead to "Stressing" an image and flat square shapes stabalise.. a line leading into an image will lead the eye to the subject....

    NOW.. go out , look for stuff, and take pictures of it....

    Edit away, I don't mind at all.

    I work 3rd shift and had been out christmas shopping all morning so I was bushed. My rule of thirds was thinking of covering 2/3 of the bed for 2/3 of the day.

    my screen is calibrated .. and the colours really don't look very vivid and there seems to be a slight colour cast... maybe whitebalnce is an issue, but also it was maybe just one of those days with dull light ;)
