This is my latest batch of selective color shots.

Model is Ania, if you're interested in her info PM me.

Whatcha think?


The last time I posted some SC images it was suggested that I desaturate the color part of the image, the following reflect that advice.

I don't know... the first one is way to much, the second is still a bit much, and the third the colors don't mix well. in my mind, any coloring done should be subtle, or at least complement color-wise. The main problem I see with the first two is that there isn't enough contrast over all, honestly, rather a flat scene (both compositionally and in contrast). The second issue to is that the color really overpowers the rest of the image, it looks like you added the color in rather then selectively de-saturating the rest of the image. Just my take.

They're okay, but not great.

These desaturated photos with spot color added are often difficult to pull off. The biggest problem is often that the color choices just don't work for the overall effect. Also having the model's feet cropped off on the first two lowers the overall impact of the photo (it just makes it look like careless framing in the viewfinder). #3 has the problem with too much strain in the neck area as you have to keep a careful eye on how the skin folds in certain areas when strained, twisted or stretched. Here is an example of one of my desaturated photos:



But even it may too much. Sometimes the more subtle the coloring the better the effect. This example, of a shot I call "envy" illustrates that:
