Many digital cameras allow the user to change the colour balance. Check the manual and play around with settings; just be sure you note what changes you made for which shots! I typically set my digital SLR to Vivid so I get nice saturated colours. The "Cloudy" setting will often brighten and warm colours a bit. Maybe the "Sunset" setting will accentuate the warm tones. It is worth taking the time to play with the adjustments in a controlled setting so you can compare results and know which settings to use when it counts. Just remember to return the settings to your everyday preferences when done.

Digital cameras allow you to manipulate the image when you take it, and after the fact. Don't assume that the factory settings are the best or the only option - they may be OK in many cases, but seldom are best for all situations.
