If you made this a print i'd be happy to hang it in my house.
Love the image and the title says it all... I wish I thought like you.

I gave this a ten; it had something that I generally didn't like (the use of the color to force the viewer to look at a part of the image they might otherwise miss), but the real impact of that use was to force us to juxtapose that with the woman in a way we otherwise would not have. I love the starkness of the B&W, and the composition is spot on. I even liked the darker red in the reflection. Perfect, in my book, though probably way too out of the box for DPC.

Very, very cool. Funny and sad and crazy at the same time. 9

Why did you put the sign in color and not the person?

An excellent concept. I hope this image does well, it should.

Great! The coloration really has a purpose.

The sad face of poverty. I wish the person hadn't been so soft focus or am I missing the point of your intentions, perhaps I am. Good luck

Good photo, but when you focre in the DeSat it looses so much

I had to come back to this photo because it is such a potent image. I'm not on board with your choice of color because it just seems so unrelated to the woman. I would rather this were all B&W, but since this is a selective desat challenge, something has to be in color, right? I think her bags or even her in color might have been a better choice, but that might come off as cheesy.

I originally voted this image a 5 with the intent to revisit it when I finished with the others. I'm not going to let the red sign be a speed bump in this image. It is just too good of a shot to have a "5," but for the challenge, the red sign does detract from the overall in my book. I'm bumping my vote to an 8.

unique and interesting - I find it interesting how you left the sign's reflection also in color. Good contrasts, and nice shot.

Interesting geometry, intersecting planes of reality and reflection.

That is really good how you didn't color the obvious. I really like it.
