A special wedding with a cute flower girl. It was hard to concentrate on taking photos of the bride and groom when I saw this opportunity with her. I shot a few and felt that this was definitely the one worth submitting. I hope you all enjoy the simple selective desat done to really pull the attendion to the flower girl. It was a very simple shot that I very much enjoyed shooting and editing and hope that all of you enjoy it as well.

To me this is an excellent choice for selective desaturation. The pose is wonderful and the placement of the bride and groom in the background is perfect. I suspect the parties involved would love to have copies of this. Very nice work all around.

I love this photo. The little girl is so pretty and the roses and satin bow really POP. The bride and groom in the background are perfect for the setting. I love your use of partial desaturation and the DOF is excellent. Even though this scored well and had a very respectable placement, I think it should have done much better.

I like the use of colour & black and white here - this photo really tells a story, through expression, colour and composition. I guess I could wish for the lighting on her face to be a little better, but overall it's an excellent shot.

I don't always go for selective coloring, but it works very well here. Nicely done!

At first sight a 13 in a dozen photo. Looking again makes the subject stand out from the rest of the photo.

This is cute. I like the DOF, composition and the use of color. The only thing I could criticize is that her face seems little dark and flat. Great job, though!

Good job on selective desaturation and DOF.

Love the monochrome except for the reds, hair & skin. Wish there was a little more light on her face (the hot spot is what works against you there) - maybe I should say more even lighting on her face.

This is very lovely,and a portrait most parents would love to have of their little girl! Your use of light is exceptionally good, and the exposure spot on. My only caveat is that the way the selective desaturation gives the photo something of a feel of a portrait taken in front of a poster size photo.

The face expression on the subject in focus does not suggest that this is every girls dream :)
