    Very cool photograph, defiantly a good one. The only problem I see it when I first looked at this image the roads behind it going every which way kind of throw my eyes off from the main subject, ie the digger. Also even though the digger is a different color than the rest, for me it almost seems to blend in with the background. But those are the only problems I see. Overall the goods defiantly out weigh the bads.

    Very nice photo, excited to see more from you.

    Cool pic, and welcome! I have been playing with selective color myself and plan on doing some more. I like the subject in this shot.

    cool idea, but one thing i notice is that the focus isnt so much on the tractor (sorry, no idea what these are called) its more on the roads, so it causes the tractor to be a bit blurred... but good job with the selective coloring
