Is there a method to reduce saturation and to give a better contrast to an image after rendering with photoshop?
Can you explain some techniques?

First, it is best to render you images with 16Bits per channel if you are going to alter them color-wise.
In Photoshop, use Image->Adjust->Hue Saturation and drag the Saturation slider to e.g. -25 for your particular image.
To adjust contrast, best use Image->Adjust->Curves and manipulate the curve so that it forms a right slanted 'S' shape.
Easier is Image->Ajust->Brightness/Contrast but this doesn't give a falloff as nice as if using Curves.
If you are a very beginner, try Image->Adjust->Variations. The UI in this dialog is quite intuitive and you can do everything step by step.

For 16 bit images it's best to use the .tga or .tiff format
And set them to 16bit, off course..., in their options
