Adjusting saturation in photos

My friend, Barry, was telling me about how he adjusted the saturation in one of his sunset pictures. I started playing with it on my own pictures, and the result is really remarkable. It makes the colors much more vivid, but you only have to adjust it a tad. Too much, and the colors all merge into one or two primary or secondary colors.

Take a look at these before and after shots:

Thanks for the plug ;-)
It really is impressive what the minor change does for those photos.

I just ordered a 16x20 print of my snowy sunset; see how the print winds up looking.

Yeah, that will look nice at 16x20. I'm going to order a 16x20 of "nice abs".
