desaturated, contrast

taken on a 15min break between classes (so busy as a teaching assistant:-)), so it didn't turned out the way I wanted, especially the right foot (jeans) appears too big in comparison with the left foot. Oh well, I felt the need to submit something and this was my best(and only shot).

For those who wondered how I managed to get only the blue in the picture, this is how it happened ... I was actually very lucky since there were no blue tones in the leafs, so all I had to do was to desaturate all the colors, except for the blue one and ... bingo. So no region selections were done.
Thanks for all the nice comments!

Tough subject to take an appealing photo of but this is pretty good, appropriate use of selective desat.

without the title garbage doesn't work at all in this one.

Why on earth would you subdue the natural colors of the leaves and leave in the blue? I don't get it...

Very pleasing photo, I hope you do well you really deserve it. The selective desat and angle are very artistic. 8

Before this challenge I wouldn't have considered leaves to be garbage but there are a lot in this challenge. This is one of the better leaves entries.
