One of the problems, so it seems when shooting outdoors in bright light is that exposure seemed to have a yellow tinge to them. If the same shot was shot under cloud cover or when the sun was not beating down, the foliage would appear green. The yellow tinge is obviously caused by the sun’s bright yellow light beating down from overhead. Fixing this in post processing is rather simple with a few basic steps. (Not a real complex how-to, but I find myself doing this quite often, so I thought I’d share how I make foliage greener.)

1.) Slide the yellow hues toward green

2.) Darken the green channel’s luminance

Finally, make any other adjustments you want…I saturated the blue some to give the sky more definition and cropped the image some to.
