I thought that a green dress in the midst of white wedding dresses would make the others look pale, and so I tried to boost the saturation and hue, then saved it, did that again, then saved it, then reduced the color levels and darkend the shadows until i got this result?? I thought it showed "green" pretty well? what do you think?

A wonderful image, pastel and serene.
Maybe the green dress placed two hangers further back would have made my eye work to find it. As it is my eye hits the green dress immediately and I then see the rest of the picture the impact of the green dress is thus diminished as I do not see its uniqueness until to late. Then again - maybe not :) What do I know.

Very creative idea. The green dress really does look stunning. Sharp focus shows up the delicate fabrics well. Perhaps could have been improved by levelling the shot a bit more, instead of having the hanger rail falling diagonally off at the top.

Neat idea, but the lighting was obviously a challenge. Too many shadows, and the colors are a little weak.

I wonder if you found the dresses in this same color formation, or edited them to make the green stand out? Still a cool concept though.

It's a nice idea but I think contrast would have been better if all the other dresses had been more white...

WOW factor on this one. Looks so nostalgic. Love the washed out color in this. Superb lighting! 10

I think the idea is lovely, and the overall shot is quite effective....but the horizontal band of shadow towards the top is very distracting.
