an old tomatillo husk over the flower of a bolting collard green plant. b/w via calculations, mask to bring back color, and an additional layer blended with color burn brought the red.

I just love your work. This is a gorgeous find and the selective desat enhances the beauty and mystery of the setting. Very pretty!

You got the royal screw job on this one. I thought for sure this would have been over 6. Good job Colleen.

And the incompleteness works very, very well, too. Excellent photograph and one of the rare ones where the desat actually adds to the image.

Ha - you got really robbed on this. I was one of your 8's, and find this incredibly artistic. What do these voters know, huh? Truly fantastic entry.

I like how you restricted the saturation of the husk to only over the flower - very arresting composition. Great title. :)

This could be a great photo, but it looks a bit dark to me. Nice idea.

Probably a bad choice of subject if you were going to give up on fully coloring the net-like flower. Unfortunately, just coloring the parts that are over the petals makes this seem incomplete.

A little disturbing, but held my attention for a while so a nice score from me. Well done.

Great DOF, love the saturation on the flower. What the heck is that on the flower? Whatever it is, its cool.
