Flow is the perfect title. Insane use of circular shapes and curves. The pop of green just draws the eyes through the circular patterns.

I do not like selective desaturation unless it is done with the right subject and done well. This is one of those cases where it is done very well and really fits in the image. Really well done!!!

Great splash of colour along with architechtural pattern. Sort of wish the staircase wasn't cut off in the foreground.

Lovely!

Very nice selective desaturation. That green really stands out. I think the crop at the bottom might have been a bit too tight.

I like the composition and the patterns and flow. I'm not a huge fan of selective desaturation but I do think it works well here.

I like the way you are directing the eyes. Unfortunately, I'm just not a big fan of selecting saturation.

If they ever have another "Splash of Color" challenge, I suggest you head back to this very spot.

Love the lines/textures and your pping on this shot. 7

Love all the patterns in the stairs, landings, railings, etc. Plus, the selective desat to keep the green plant as contrast. Very interesting lines that lead the eye to the giant fern in the center.

I love how those wonderful swirling lines ultimately lead to and embrace the green fern. One of my top picks.

Most likely 21_F.gif KarenNfld or a very good replica of her shot. better than the other entry IMHO. Comp is more pleasing. Lots of shapes to look at and exposure is spot on.

Excellent repetitious lines and patterns - almost makes me dizzy.

Very cool geometry.

I don't care for selective desat ... usually.... this is an exception. Stunning turns and twists in this. Love it.

Architecture is so difficult to shoot well. Superb! 10

Love the selective desat. I am trying to find this image that was entered in a challenge but I just can't find it.

Either way, I absolutely love it.
My only one reserve is I wish the image was more symmetrical.

wonderful patterns, and the desat is well done, back to bump you up

Nice use of selective desat and framing to draw the eye in. Very cool shot.

Nice use of the golden spiral. I'd almost like to see the planters in color, too.

A real contender so far, the selective de-sat really does work. 9

So close to your original Karen. Still enjoyable though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice, but frankly "selective desaturation" images make me want to jam a finger up my eye and I can tell you that I personally would have loved this shot a whole lot more in either all color or all black and white. This is just my personal taste of course. Shame as the composition is great and so is the light and shadows in the image. Still gave a 6 but would most defiantely have given a higher score.
