    you did so well with the texture in 1, as it's so hard to get that colour of red to look good in digital, awesome dof too.

    Awesome, #1's composition is wonderful! It's so nice to see that vibrant red during such a grey time!

    Thanks!!

    P.S. I'm new to selective coloring so go easy on me!
