I love the texture in the wood. I think the whole photo could be a tad darker but great capture!

This is a wonderful shot, I'm really a fan of the selective desat and the rich tones of the color in the flowers. The one thing I don't like is the flower thats hanging out over the windwo from the basket on the lower right.

I liked this alot and gave it a 9. It was different. Maybe the desaturation hurt you, but I think it deserved a higher placement.

You did a very nice job selectively desaturating this picture. I like the rustic feeling of it. I know you as I wish that the tag was not hanging down from the basket in the middle of the picture but that was probably out of your control.

The selective desat works well here, normally I strongly dislike it but here it hits the spot.

It was a good decision to use selective desaturation for this photograph. The flowers might not have come out well enough otherwise. You might have desaturated the plants in the upper part of the window as well though, since they're not something you'd want attention to be drawn on.

great use of desat. it would be nice to see is slightly sharpper, i'm assuming it was the downsize that caused the little bit of fuzzyess that bothers me just a tad, but i'll be understanding.

(always remember to sharpen a tad after the downsize for the web. [if detail is lost in compairson to the big]) still a great shot.

Use of the partial desaturation technique makes sense here, and is well-done.

Lovely photo

Good use of desat. I like the old condition of the wood. The only distraction is the price tag in the middle of the window (which you had no control over).

Nice choice of colour and good tones in the black and white.

Good desaturation here. I am surprised that the flowers in the box did not retain their color too.

the color and duotone work well in this

great use of selective desat for this image. otherwise the flowers would just be lost

Great use of selective desat. Like the composition too, good luck.

Playing with colors is always fun. Looks ok though I would have like to see a photo taken straigt-on the window.

Nice job with the selective desat. I wish the one stray sprig on the RH side of the frame had been repositioned.

I like the desat, but wish the flowers were just a little sharper. Otherwise, I think this is excellent.

I really like the use of selective desaturation here as it serves to answer the challenge theme well, and emphasizes the textures in the shot.... I vote 7

One of my favorites in this challenge.....

I know some people don't like the partially desat. look, but I really like this. This flowers really stand out. Nice shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love that. Sometimes selective saturation is kind of "odd" for me but I find this lovely. I'd probably like the entire shot done in color too, or maybe even the entire thing in sepia. The composition is lovely. Great old window.

yep..love it! the saturation and desat rock! 9
