Default Wild Card - B&W with selected color

My creativity is somewhat limited, so I can only do what I've done before....

This was a challenge in another forum few months ago, to create a B&W image with selected color portions. Tried it on few shots from this Xmas.

Beautifully done. I first looked at these images on my smartphone (Motorola Photon 4G). In the first shot, I didn't realize that the red objects were Poinsettias. I thought they were Red ribbons! The image quality on that phone is excellent but the small size compared to the computer, has its limitations!

Beautiful...ghostly, but beautiful. I am especially drawn to the top one.

An interesting selection. While I like the first one probably best, there's something about the last one that seems rather poignant - the one bright bulb and the cat amongst the packages. That's the one that I keep going back to the most.

Thank you very much everyone!

mtngal - yep, that last one is special for me. He just loves sleeping under the tree, and he even left the ornaments alone!

Hi Saly,

It's not the camera but the person holding it and what's between their ears that matters. nicely done..........
