    I have read several articles and opinions indicating color selecting in photos is not a good thing. Just wondering why? Is there any photos that look better using selective coloring?

    Because 99.9% of the time it looks tacky and amatuerish. I have only had one single photo that I've taken that looks better with selective coloring than it did in all color or B&W.

    Here's the photo. I HATE selective coloring, but it looked best in this case which is very rare.

    Selective colouring was something that was way overused in the past. It does have it's place time to time, and I do have brides ask for it still. It's a personal thing really, some people like it, some don't. Just don't do it to every photo!
