The scene is really busy with all that contrasting detail, but it's refreshing to see a good conceptual shot in here.

Good use of selecive desat!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 04:08:58 PM
My favorite thing about this is that you left the tall branches without color in the line of the "paint" - that took work!!

This is a great idea but the processing detracts from the overall image.. Such a shame as it really is such a good idea.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 04:01:17 PM
One of the few BW+Color shots where I find the technique adds to the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:41:55 PM
This is a terrific concept, but I personally think the contrast is much to harsh, and the colors over-saturated. Otherwise, this looks pretty nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 02:12:38 PM
the colours arent' working for me, sorry. because of the sharpening/hardening treatment, they're coming over with no detail in the leaves.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2009 01:22:00 PM
Great idea. The processing looks a little overdone.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2009 05:10:11 PM
Oh this is absolutely clever and well presented!!!! The attention to detail is something that also makes this composition enjoyable to look upon. *LOVE* the expression on the child as he joyfully and with much glee tosses the color on the bushes. I like how the 'cans of paint' are Scotts brand...a brand of turf and plant feed. I guess they have now gone into paint colors now;-) And the paint can colors are labeled with the season and the color too! The black and white treatment is great for you have a nice dynamic range of tones.
