Yeah I'm beginning to understand embarrassing. My science shot is holding steady at a 5 but, I was happy to go through the process of shooting the microscope and processing the photo, as I learned a lot from doing it. Which is exactly what I need to do if I'm going to become a better photographer. Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family.

Actually I prefer the black and white with no selective desaturation. I also put a vignette on it, which I forgot to do with this one. :)

Actually it was at break time. I dropped the balloon from two floors above and took some shots of the resulting riot!

This is precious and an excellent choice for this challenge. The B&W conversion only lends more strength to an image that says a great deal. A rare opportunity to use selective color and not get berated for it. (I hope that's the case, otherwise, for shame!)

Fantastic selective desat. You really know how to capture good composition and movement in a crowd.
