Neat selective desaturation! It almost looks as though the flowers are out of focus or something, but maybe it's just the post-editing. Very nice shot!

Nice use of selective desat. My only nitpick is the chopped off flowers in the foreground.

Very nice. I like the composition and use of color. The only thing that bugs me a bit is the headstones to the right are very soft compared to the church.

I think in order for the single sat to realy work, the flowers in the foreground need to be tack sharp. AS it is, I can't tell for sure where the focus is. Maybe in the center on the snow. This has great potential and actually, I'd prefer it be all black and white in high contrast, but that's just my taste.

Your eye is drawn to the orange flora, but I am not sure about theselective desaturation.
That being said this has impact and I have scored this with that impact in mind

I think you needed to crop the left side a little to get rid of the last lot of flowers. Other then that nice image.
