I've seen some great examples of b/w pics where elements have been picked out in colour to focus attention. I've had a go at this.....
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/17033/thumb/74127.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/17033/thumb/74127.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
....but I'm not sure it's working here. My aim was to highlight particular individuals and the objects of their attention. I think that the lack of resolution isn't helping and I had difficulty trying to lighten the detail without overexposing the floor.
Comments, criticism and suggestions gratefully received. Thanks.

I actually really like the composition and the picture as a whole. Personally, I find spot color to be a rather dated, 90s-era technique. This execution of spot color is pretty interesting, though. The stuff that gets a yawn from me is the black and white bride holding the full color rose.
Anyhow, nicely done. Where was this taken, by the way?

Thanks for the comment.....It was taken in the Royal Museum/Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. In fact, you can see the cafe and the balcony where i took the pic in agwright's recent ribbon-winning pic:-

My entry for the Window View challenge was also shot from a museum window.
