Amazing picture but one question... How do you amp remaining color with curves? I'd love to know how you did that.

Thanks!

Congrat's...love the "blues" shot. I didn't get a chance to vote, but you didn't need another 10 anyway...

Congrats on the tenth place finish! Although I don't know if the best way to get rid of a cold is to walk around topless, atleast you had a warm hat on ;P. Three challenges and a new top 3, nice!

Very nice shot. I really liek the selective desat thing going on, but I would expect this image to be dqed for spot editing. Excellent image and I hope it doesnt go. Giving it a 7 right now. Will probably bump it up later in the week if it is still hanging around when I do my bump ups.Just came by to see how this one was coming along on validation - Welldone!!! I am looking forward to seeing the steps and maybe the original. Very cool and I am very pleased to see it not dq. Bumping up 1 now.

I like the contrast in black and white with the colorful hat.

Imaginative, creative, and impactful. The artistic composition and the explosion of color against the grey-scale make this a real standout. Great job!
