I'm not a fan of selective desat, but putting that aside while grading today. Instead, I'm grading overall composition and whether i feel like the item that is colored draws my interest or if i feel like it pulls my interest away from something else that i find more personally meaningful in the picture.

In this shot, well. It is a silly decoration posed on a handsome dog. His expression is a bit, "what is this $&()(& next to me?"

So for that, what is colored is a nice choice, but the background is busy- especially the helmets on the blanket. And the dog's eyes look distorted by either a flash or some other light source. Lastly the focus on the eyes is a bit soft.

Direct flash - bad idea

Fun shot! The internet loves dogs!!! I think a flash was used here which was a little powerful and blew out some of the highlights on the front of the dog.
