I followed the row over the challenge rules (forums), and I'm going to say that this meets the rules. I didn't 'selectivly desaturate' with any masks, clone tools, brushes, dodge/burn or the like. The entire image was effected by the color balance layer. In fact, I wanted to enter this in it's BW form, but I'm certain that would get a fair number of DNMC votes. White and black are colors!!!!
I like the end result, and I'll be happy with something above a 6. Sorry for the cliche title
I'm guessing that the low score is because people thought that this was a DNMC image. Well...
Here's what I wanted to submit:
And thanks for the great comments!
