Last minute entry, almost literally. I went to The Grotto today after work, and I might have a better shot somewhere, but they're all going to require more work than I have time for. I'm not happy, and I'm positive that I'm going to take a hit on it because Selective Desat was last week.

Adjust Layer to desat all but red
Adjust layer to desat all, with masking to remove the remaining red traces I wasn't happy with.

I thik the selective red works well for this picture. Is there a reason why certain ones are red while others are not?

The black at the top adds little. Could you have reframed this to exclude the ceiling and maybe have candles to the top? Just my opinion :)

cool use of the selective desaturation! I do find the dark park of the top of the frame a bit distracting, nice picture anyway!
