Not my interpretation of the challenge, but too cool to vote down. I hope others give you the benefit of the doubt.

Really like the selective saturation here. Goes well with the title and story. nice job. My pick for top 10.

i like the use of selective desaturation in this one.

I like this alot. Composition is very good. I'm usually not a big fan of selective desaturation, however it works very well in this image to draw you attention to the couple.

Perfect choice on the selective desat.

Hmmm. Interesting. Non-conformist with the blurred people around the main subject. ;^) May come back to bite you with the voters. It's a cool effect and gives additional interest to this image...only time will tell. I like the desat, very clever in this situation. Your subject may be a bit small to get maximum impact from the voters (in comparison to all the motion around the subject). JMO of course. Good luck in the challenge.

interesting take on the challenge. i'll give this a lucky-dog bump, just because it is so unique.

taking a picture of something not moving isn't really stopped motion; it's just stopped. it's a nice (semi-classic) view of GCS, though it feels that to me the building is taking centre stage, rather than the non-desatted people. i do like that the people are almost dead centre (nice composition), but i think the selected desat doesn't quite work here; maybe the greyscales aren't dark or contrasty enough for max impact, or perhaps the people are just too small? 5.

nice perspective, good b/w and a nice touch of color, very well executed, the idea I had in mind with this challenge.

Beautiful work on the selective desat. Love those disembodied legs walking around them :) 9.

Love the photo. Not sure if it fits because of the motion trails.

I like the photo a lot. Dramatic space. Selective desat works well. But in the end, it doesn't really demonstrate stopping motion to me.

Good view of Grand Central with a nice wide view. Composition and desat are excellent

I hate selective desat. There wasn't much motion to stop. So why am I giving this a ten? Because it is a wonderful image and a brilliant interpretation of the challenge.
