I LIKE the desat a lot. It was a smart thing to do with this harsh light and water noise. I might, might have fiddled with the contrast of the fountain or brought the whites down a peg... or possibly have applied a touch of gaussian blur only to the background. Maybe. Excellent shutter speed and focus. Great capture overall.

This is an interesting and fun shot. The desat works fine, but the over-sharpening doesn't help.

There is much to love about this photo: the action, the relationships between playmates, the sheer thrill of playing in water. It is well composed and well exposed. Somehow, the undue focus on the dress undermines the strengths of the photo IMO.

I like the selective color. Title distracts me, but the photo is nice. evokes a sense of laughter and play. 7

The selective desaturation in this photo is great. The water spray really adds to the shot. 10

Cute, but I think the light is too harsh and is not flattering to the photo.
