Die she belt you with the shopping bags after you'd taken the shot ;-)
Excellent work and great use of select desat. Congrats on top 10.

I like this - works well for selective desat. I like the centering of the main subject with this too.

This is so striking... it rises higher in my reputation each time I see it. Breaks a lot of rules -- I like that!

I'm drawn to the guy behind the shopper. Looks like trouble. Hold on to those bags! I like this alot. Spent more time contemplating this than others.

I like this a lot, and I'm not the biggest fan of selective desaturation. For some reason this works really well.

Excellent shot and B&W processing. Only one thing really bothers me is a light strip on ceiling goes right into your main subjectís head:( 8

I really like this one. My only dislike is the haloing around her hair. It does have a nice photojournalistic feel to it though!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The subject looks stationary, as if thinking she forgot to get something at the store, and can't decide if she should go back or go home. After all, she *is* already in the train station.. The overhead lights eminating from her head, together with the slight white outline around her hair, look like a thought bubble: "toothpaste! I forgot toothpaste!"

This is quite an emotive image. With her in color, it's like she's alone in this crazy world, something I'm sure we all feel sometimes. Very nicely done!

So far my favorite in this challenge.

pretty neat editing here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Well done the smooth / rough processing works well. the straight face on the girl is perfect. Great work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2007 09:09:03 AM
Love this idea - although in my case I would be cray after shopping ;)

really bad oversharpening going on.

Looked like a good picture at first but your post processing really didnt help it one bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2007 07:17:24 AM
I *really* like this.....wow, so much impact!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice processing technique. Gives the impression that you aren't very fond of shopping...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

FINE piece of work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2007 12:12:41 AM
Well done. This really does what selective sat is supposed to. It isn't contrived, but really pulls you right toward her. Way to go.
