I like it but the 'rust' color doesn't quite 'work' for me. Looks too 'sepia'. I'd rather see a truer 'rust' color to play off the B&W. (also my monitor is only 'eye-balled with no true hardware calibration.)

AND remember I'm just a 'layman' with absolutely no experience or background in photography, so you may want to take what I say with a grain or two.

What's it look like in normal colour? I suspect that b/w with a burst of colour isn't working for me but I want to be sure.

here's the original... selective color doesn't 'work' for everyone. i just thought it added a bit of interest...

Sorry Squirl, maybe it's my old eyes or monitor that's fading fast, but the pic looks a little thin to me. A little PP seems to bring out the richness in this one. JM2C

Here is the B&W one with PP. Is it my monitor that's washed out, or does this look better? Please let me know.

Hard to say. On my monitor I'd say use a bit less 'punch', but better, and again... no 'true' calibration on mine, monitor over 3 years old, I'm of the bifocal crowd, I tend to like a bit less 'pop' (one of those 'trendy' terms of the year, isn't it?) etc. etc. :roll:

I prefer the Hiroshi enhanced PP versions, viewed on my laptop LCD they have excellent detail and saturation.

Me too, especially the second with black and white background. Really gives the metal a gorgeous 3D quality.
