I just started taking digital photography seriously. I have Canon A70 which I am not much satisfied with. Pictures are very noisy and colors don't come vibrant. I am just trying to learn ways to retouch the images to make them more appealing. This is the original image without any retouching. This is the image after noise reduction and adjusting contrast and brightness. I want to get a feedback and want to know more techniques about how can I make such images better and attractive.
