I haven't posted anything for a while because nothing I've taken has really grabbed me. I do however quite like this one, mainly because of the way the bars of his hutch are being reflected in his eye.

Any thoughts / critiques would be welcome. Also, which is preferable - the full colour one or the selectively coloured?

I think I prefer the partial color. It is subtle enough not to be too apparent and gives a wear rabbit feel.

I prefer the selective colour too. Great work!

You did a great crop keeping that clear diagonal from lower right to upper left that leads you to the eye of the captive rabbit... I'd use it as a postcard for some animal protection society (sorry, dunno how it is called in english lang).

There are a number of ways to do it but the method I chose was to desaturate the image in Photoshop and then use the history brush to paint the colour back in over the eye. If you have photoshop I can tell you in more detail if you like.

Great shot Frenchy! I particularly like the selective colored one, and would love to learn how to do this in Photoshop. I only have Elements 4.0 though, and I'm new to it, so if you have a quick lesson, I'm always willing to learn.

Guys, sorry - I will get back to you it's just hectic here this weekend. I've only got 2 minutes to post this. I'll have a process in the next day or so.
