We used to  make decisions based on contrast and color saturation in our use
in the 90's of color films... Then paper's we'd print them on.
In Photoshop there is such a thing as a contrast and or color saturation
control. As well as a dozen other ways to do the same thing if you are a tad
more advanced. Controls.  All you do is movie the slider and you get as much
contrast and saturation as you'll little heart could ever desire in a color
shot. Or hue or a half dozen other paramiters. For every color.
Its rare with color nowadays shooting digital that I don't get in the end
EXACTLY what I want out of my color. Its less up to lenes any more and of
course not film and its not camera and or camera senor... The color result
you get. We have total control now. If we have a handle on our software.
Are you reds a little week on a certain shot?
Grab the red color slider and make them stronger!
Would I not have to move that slider if I was shooting Canon or Leica?
I don't care! I'm in there moving sliders anyway. Tweaking my shots to
perfection in my own imagination.
