I saw these three clothesspins on our fence and somehow liked the contrast of that one red spin. (the others were green)

So here's what came out:

Excellent thinking. I don't usually like pictures where everything but the focal point is desaturated, but this picture absolutely called for doing just that. Very, very nice.

Very nice and compliments for the idea, Kex !

Mmm, one thing : I wonder if coloring the one on the right instead of the one on the left would improve the shot or not.

Here's my arguments :

1) The red one (which is supposed to be the eye catcher for this shot) is too near the border.

2) Making the right one the red one would also yield the following results:
  • put it in almost rule-of-thirds position [/*]
  • let it the ending element of the scan path of the eye, which , at least in occidental culture, is from left to right.
[/*]
P.S. : I appreciated you leaving the saturation on the rusted parts !

Thank you all for your nice comments!
sergio: Yes I agree to your thoughts. I first thought that the red is too close to the border.
So here's another version based on your ideas:



And of course the original photo for you, discodudette.

Your second version usingSergio's excellentsuggestion looks so much better, Kex. The original, it turns out, is rather interesting all on its own.

It's great the way we're all learning from one another.
