I don't get why this didn't place higher; I gave it a ten, and obviously really liked it. I thought it was (as one commenter said) the perfect use of selective desat, adding to the image through a splash of color rather than defining the image. Nice lines where the arms come together, and in the tattoo. Nice.

This is the kinda photo selective desat was made for. Coloration has purpose and adds the story of the pic. Nice capture.

Excellent use of the de-saturate technique!! I'm sure a thigh, a breast or a wing might have given you a couple extra tens this week. A 9 from me, It is a great Idea.
