How does a landscape photographer get those deep colors in their photos? Is it all done in photo software? There was no such thing as photo software a couple of decades ago. So, while today's digital photographers may use software to deepen or saturate colors, it is easier to do so right in the camera. Take this photo I took of the Partners statue in front of Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom.

Nikon D700/Tokina 11-16mm, 1/160s, f/16, ISO 200, EV -0.3, 15mm focal length.
The trick is to slightly underexpose the photo. There are a couple of ways to do it. First way is to switch to manual mode and underexpose by 1/3 to 1/2 stop using either the aperture or shutter speed. The other way is to use the exposure compensation (EV) button and set it to -0.3 or -0.5. Such a setting will deepen the colors for you.
