tiny crop. Desaturated entire image and added orange tint. Added back original image in blending mode "hard light". Did a little touch up here and there. Viveza 2 on Fort Baker.

Original is here: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/683/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_515415.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/683/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_515415.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Nice view of the GG bridge. By your title, I suppose you did some selective desaturation, but I cannot detect it much here, though it seems the colors are unnatural (skies too blue, the bridge is faded, and the water blue is too dark).

I like the view point. The colors seem to indicate an early morning shot where the sun is barely cresting the horizon.

I think this is a reshoot of an entry by ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' sfalice. I must say you have really improved the image tremendously. The full color and the saturation really pops. It looks like something out of a '50's technicolor movie or something! I also think you may have tried some perspective correction because the columns in your last entry look somewhat curved and these look nice and straight... Great Job.

One of the few critiques I could give is about the dark water. Other than that... It Pops!!
