Obviously I used selective desaturation in PS to further enhance the concept. #367638

Fantastic location and a very good call on the selective coloring too. I also like your daughter's props. Looks like a natural shot.
Great work Mary-Ella! #2242690

Hi Mary Ella - I know exactly where you shot this in Hillcrest. I get my haircut just around the corner and have often thought about bringing my camera to do a shoot infront of the same wall. You beat me to it! I hope you don't mind if I enter a shot with a different twist on this. Anyhow, congratulations on your second place win! -G #2466558
