Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating with a saturation boost, part of Photoshop: Mastering Color Correction (2012).
As you're working on improving the color in your photos, you might find that you …sometimes tend to focus on just the most dominant colors in the image. …For example, here you might focus your attention on the bright blue sky. …But there can also be other hidden colors, and those hidden colors can …sometimes present a problem. As you're evaluating an image, trying to …decide on exactly what sort of color adjustment might be necessary, one of the …things that I find very helpful is to really boost the saturation. …And I don't mean just a little boost to give the colors a little bit more pop.…
I mean, really make those colors scream out, so that you can see what's going on …in the image. I'll go ahead and add an Adjustment layer …by clicking on the Add Adjustment Layer button at the bottom of the Layers panel, …and I'll choose Hue Saturation. And then on the Properties panel, I'll …take that Saturation slider all the way over to the right, to the maximum value. …To be sure, the image is going to look a bit odd. …
