How can you have colour and b&w without using layers?? I like the shot, not sure if it's within the rules though.

I like the selective desat and the story I am making up about these guys!

7 - Good character and angle. Criticism; undecided on the seemingly 'selective desaturation', as it only seems to really show up skin/ears/neck, so not sure. Technically, while no 'expert', seems to me like you have used at least two 'rules' here, and both somewhat 'loosely', but difficult given the 'duo'.

skin a little too orange but title more than makes up for it - adding to favorites

This is odd. The only color is their skin and it seems oversaturated. Framed well tho.

Very attractive use of desaturation, I hope it was not selective and against the rules cause it really is pleasant. Your positioning is very nice and you keep a deep depth of field to help the image.

Good luck

ROFL. Cute!! I sort of miss the green of the shrubbery, but I know what you were going for. Hmmm - it needs a touch of red somewhere. Good composition and clarity.

I love it! Excellent capture and quality. Ignore those desaturation haters, its a 10 in my book. =)
