Very cool Aldwin, I love the selective coloring, works perfectly for this image! #2974850

Aldwin L. Ong July 01, 2006

I appreciate your gestures Susan and Deb :).... well, yeah I think selective coloring by desaturation is an apt name for what I did... What I did exactly was to simply desaturate it low enough to leave this subtle pastel color, which I found noticeably pleasant but not distractingly outstanding against the black and white. So the focus is as much on the flower as it is on the butterfly. God bless! c",) #2975367

Great composition and effects on this image, Aldwin!! Thanks for your comments!
I use mostly Nikkor 28-105 f3.5-4.5 macro 1:2 for portraits, still lifes and ultra closeups, and for macro, I love my Sigma 105 mm, f 2.8, with my Nikon D70, Aldwin. #3029079
