Personally, I like it a lot and real;ly have no minus comments. The selective colorization adds the necessary impact and the remainder of the image in BW definitely gives the right mood for the photo.

Excellent shot

b&w suits image perfectly. Selective colouring adds good impact to the shot. You have done very well to get the exposure spot on

I also find the selective coloring effective here -- a rarety for this technique. The ease with which some effects can be created means that many folks use them to try to make an uninteresting image "artistic," but you have actually redeemed the effect with this photo. Well done.

I really like this shot as well, can you tell me how you did this as I have trouble when it comes to getting the detail needed for a shot like this...the B&W effect...TIA

It amazes me again and again - just how much more interesting selective color can turn some pictures into.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"The real asset is to have an ability to "see" where it's needed, and you Quan, definetly have it.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Thumbs up!!!

Hi everyone,

Sorry for not having coming back soon to say thank you very much for your comments and advice. I'd like to say thank you very much for your time and comments on this photo. I may redo this version in large size and may submitto a local photo contest. Do you think if there is any more room for improvements?

By the way, please find attached another experimental version. Please tell me which one is better.

Thanks and regards,

Quan Tran

I find the first much better. First, the color that was added is not jarringly far away from B&W, which makes it seem more natural. And, second, too many things colored make the focus so diffuse that it's not clear what the point of all the color is -- why not just use a color shot?
