contrasty and colorful images
for about one year i'm seriously into photography. my postprocessing skills have become better, but i still lack something that i don't know.
i want to get photographs with a lot of contrast and punchy colors so that they come flying of your screen and into your face!
i see this in a lot of professional photographers work (also in gregs scenic work) and i really like it. however, no matter how much i try, i can't really get the effect as much as i want.
so here i am, asking for your advice.
here are some before and after pics i made so i can show you guys what i do:

i don't know the image limits of the forums so i'll post the next pics behind a link:
(i know this photo isn't 100% sharp, but it's a good illustration for the effect)

and after: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thi_mon/5905041414/in/photostream
i'd like to know, what should i do to get the colors more powerful and the overal image stronger?
Find the best angles and take the shot (but don't "chimp" around either LOL); try different perspectives here and there. It will make you photos a lot more (sorry, for the over used word) epic!
I myself have been into photography for a year, but I am still learning to better compose photos
Good luck to us in improving our photography skills!
Fstoppers did an awesome video with Dave Lehl almost a year ago, noted Snowboard photographer. I know they are not exactly the same, but I feel the points he brings up with composition are very nice. Here is the video
Good luck and just keep shooting!
