As mentioned in the article 'Understanding Color in Photography,' using colors appropriately in photography does add a dynamic element to your images. This may result in compositions that are pleasing to the eye while adding to the desired attraction to the image, and also giving the 'oomph' to your creative edge.

The opposite, of course, might result otherwise. Bold and advancing colors at the front end of the spectrum can also be used as the dominant form or as elements of isolation of the composition, while blues and greens, from the other end of the spectrum, blends rather well as receding background elements.

The use of post-processing tools, such as Brightness & Contrast, Hue & Saturation, Color Filters, Luminosity, Vibrancy and such, available on most Image Processing Software may also be of help to accentuate your image.

With plenty of guides and tutorials available on the internet, there is no shortage of tricks and techniques on how to develop your images. The choice to go professional, with subscription software, or amateur, with free downloads, is yours to pick and choose.

The images here, shot on the Lumia 720 one early morning at our local rail hub exchange, KL Sentral, were rather bland and looked washed-out, lacking the luster and the ambiance of the place. The option I adopted was to pass each image twice (2x) through Google NIK Color Efex Pro 4 with a very high setting for both Saturation and Perceptual Saturation. The results, as you can see, are rather astonishing in the ability of the app to enhance and saturate the colors as absorbed by the camera sensor.
