If you want enriched saturation, try and make the image under morning and evening sun light which carries its own natural warmth. This would be better than introducing it artificially on a computer. The eye and brain are a formidable double act and they can detect an amber that appears too rich.
Expansive views can be very daunting so why not consider details that suggest autumn? If you want to choreograph an image with strategically positioned autumn leaves remember to think natural. You don’t want the viewer to be preoccupied with 'was the item placed there by hand or did it get there naturally?' Au naturel if you can.
