Re: How to give this more pop?


Part of the problem is that you have mixed lighting which is causing you to have different color casts (warm vs. cool) in differing areas of the image.

Those areas that were illuminated by your flash have one WB, while those areas the flash didn't reach (or reached less of) were illuminated by ambient WB. Anytime you have a color cast, it will rob you of the ability to make it "pop".

The supersaturation reveals the differing areas. Notice how the sink changes color (also the tiles) when it should be a consistent color (i.e. white or close to it). Shooting @ high ISO/slow shutter may have allowed you to pick up warm ambient influence in the areas not receiving direct flash.
