I'm surprised to see this didn't do better. It was one of my top 3 picks.

I don't care for this selective color technique -- I don't see what that adds to the photo.

To me the interesting part of this photo is the way the shadow of the blade is falling on the building. I would've tried getting in closer and capturing that. Just an idea...

I like the composition but not the desaturation of everything except the sky.

Beautiful capture. You did extrememly well with the selective de-saturation. The blue sky makes for a nice background for the windmill and helps it stand out better. Good job.

This is an excellent image though I would have selected only the windmill for the partial desat. Reason is that the trees are not weathered. 6

If I may be honest I think I would have liked it more if the whole shot had been b/w or in colour, this selective desaturation doesn´t appeal to me personally and also draws the attention to the sky instead of the windmill wich is presumably the connection to the theme "wooden". Having said that though I still think this is above average in this challenge, I like the composition.

6 - I don't like the effect of the black & white against electric blue sky at all, however, it is a very nice composition.

I really like the selective desat on this shot. The only complaint I would have regarding the challenge, is it would be nice to see the color of the windmill, and the wood showing through where the paint is gone.

A pleasant shot, more interesting angles could have been used for a more dynamic shot

to me the selective desat is drawing attention away from your main subject of wood

I feel the sky is a little to blue but a very cool idea

Awesome sky. Great DOF and composition. I think this is one where I'd like to see it in color. Still a really great shot.

Excellent! Really well composed, great subject and wonderful effects.

Hrmm, not sure what you were going for here, but the processing to the sky takes focus away from your intended subject...the sky is also too purple.
