Special thanks to all those who took the time to comment and let me know they liked this. I'm not ordinarily a selective color fan and I think that's true of many here at DPC, so I hesitated to enter this. However, I do think it can work when the image looks as if or almost as if it could have been in black and white with a touch of color; and, in my opinion, that's the case here.
This is one of the less frequented hallways at the Palace of Versailles in France. The floor is, of course, black and white, and the bench is blue. The walls are more a creamy beige.

Well done. I think the blue works very well, and glad that it is not the sometimes overdone red!

Beautiful textures, shapes and shadows. Excellent choice with the B&W with the exception of the chair.

Not often does selective saturation works. But here it is ok.

Nice job on the selective desat. It's not overwhelming. Very nice perspective and composition.

Excellent example of selective color that i never thought would work. I always thought that fiery colors (red, yellow, orange and variations) work best with this technique, never blue.
