Yes, I'm fed up with needlessly super saturated photos too. If they are that way for a reason, fine (I like the work of Martin Parr). But behind the bright pingy colours, often there's very little else. It's like a cake that's nearly all sugar; it's ultimately unsatisfying. Photos like this will get a 'like', then the viewer quickly moves on to the next one, never fulfilled.

I think that a good photograph is so arranged (composed, shaped, coloured) that the viewer pauses and studies it; that's the whole point of making it.
