Here's a closeup on the Grand Central Station in NYC from this summer. I desaturated the entire image except for the clock. Comments welcome

thanks

very nice shot, I think the desaturation works well.

Me too... because the stone figures around it would be either blue-grey or sand color and would have distracted from the beautiful color and detail of the clock. This really allows those blues and purples to pop out, AND it allows the details in the surrounding figures to be visible, too. Great sharpness, good pic!

Thanks everyone for the comments. I edited the picture to get rid of the reds in the lower part of the clock. I think it's better now. Does anyone know how to get rid of the halo in the upper left corner. thanks everyone

Very nice, makes me want to go there myself. I like the shot with the red in it. To me the red on the blue really makes the clock face stand out.

What halo are you talking about? The halo carved in the stone?

Thanks for the comment. The reason I took out the red is because it was in only two of those circles. It's the samein the original too. I wished it was more even. It just looked odd to me. Maybe I'm too picky :-)

The red was distracting for me, and I really noticed the pattern behind the hands of the clock once it was gone.
