Ken Rockwell is right. Oversaturated = good!

I've been working as an amateur wedding and also parties photographer. You know, I charge way less than a pro would, but at the same time I make no promisse to deliver good things.

And I must say people love warm oversaturated images.

Whenever I delivered some quality neutral sharp images, people would usually be very disapointed.

But the times I cranked the vivid color slider the max people were really impressed. Wow your pictures are so pretty they said.

Also people don't like sharpness that much. I took some portraits with a 85mm 1.8 and the sharpness was high enough to make aliasing appear on the zoom out image thumb and people really didn't like the photos only because it captured all the wrikles of the bride in great detail.
So now I apply a filter to make the image softer making wrinkles less noticeables.


You should listen to Ken Rockwell, people really love vivid warm images.
