    If you mean general post processing then there are a few things you can do in general to 'jazz up' a picture.

    1) This photo is maybe a tiny bit overexposed. It's not that contrasty or saturated. The colours could be richer and it could have more of a range of tones. maybe also a bit of sharpening.

    2) This can be alot better It hink with some curves or contrast work. The composition is nice and the photo is pulled down a bit by the muddy, musky dusty look to the overall thing. That can be fixed easily.

    3) Needs the least work. just general addition to contrast and saturation.

    I can post up what I mean uf you want in edited form of these pictures but only if you want.

    This is what I would probably do but it fis my tastes. you might want something different from the pictures. They are great pictures I enjoyed doing this.

    Nice composition and DOF. It perhaps does need a little more saturation but I think Daniel's version has too much. Yours looks much better in my opinion. I think my favorite one is the first one - all are nice though.

    Agree with linda here.
    Your first versions do need a contrast boost and some sharpening.
    My fave is the second. I tweaked it a bit in PS and it came out nice. Love the light being filtered by the dust/haze? in the air.
    Keep at it kunal. Neat to see yours and mansi's diff. views of Qutab (as well as many other's I've seen). It's quite the incredible structure and the grounds look equally impressive.

    I love these just the way they are!!

    The slightly washed out look really adds to the atmosphere I think!

    Great work and looking forward to more :D

    I like the contrast in Daniel's, but that's really all I thought was lacking in the original. The saturation dit get to be too much in the new ones. I, too really like the second one. Bump the contrast (or use curves) and you've got a winner :thumbsup:
