    Cool shot, but to be completely frank I'm not too fond of the selective coloring - and if it is going to be used I'd love the rest of the shot to be much higher contrast.

    I don't really like the selective coloring....it draws you to the shirt instead of the child. Overall though, great shot :)

    My opinion is selective coloring should be relatively subtle almost unnoticeable but it seems to work a lot better with children the way it has been done here. I actually clicked on this thread on a whim I usually don't like to comment on shots of children as they tend to be a sensitive subject for most but I like this one quite a bit.

    He is cute, but the picture looks really under-exposed to me. Maybe that was your intention though? As far as the coloring, in this case, I would go all color or all B&W, but not selective. It takes away more than adds to me.
