    I am often not a fan of selective coloring. I was specifically asked to do some on these pics because they will be used on a website for a business that makes and sells the bows, tutus, and jewelry. I did although put on some full color shots too. Ironically the business owner, favored the full color ones!

    I too like the full color ones better, it seems more lively. Numbers 1 and 2 are great also. All of then are awesome :)

    These should be full color or B&W. The selective color adds nothing. By making certain things in the photo pink, you are telling us that the bow in her hair or the tutu are the focal points....

    as I mentioned, the pics are for a website advertising the bow, the tutu and the jewlery. So, I selected a point of view that puts the bow as the focal point, and as requested by the client we did selective coloring. She didn't want the pics to be ALL about a pretty baby, she is selling bows, tutus and jewlery.

    The selective coloring isnt bad. I am not a big fan of it usually but it seems pretty subtle. I dont really think it makes the product stand out as a focal point but the customer gets what the customer wants.

    I love the selective color. Nice and subtle, very good usage. I've seen some baaaad use of selective color, but these are great. I like them much better than the color versions. (Nice composition too :-D)

    You're overanalyzing it.
