    I took this snapshot at the weekend. Any thoughts? I didn't crop it at all as you can see from the vignetting (lens hood on the 17-85mm IS at 17mm gets in the way just a little) but I don;t think it hurts the image. Reduced in size to 800x600ish for web viewing. The full image looks a bit better.

    I kinda like the trees on the left as they create a nice natural border but maybe it would look better with a crop? Please rate it or slate it as I am here to learn.

    For those of you interested (and with a copy of Photoshop):

    To do the selective colouring take a look at this guide:

    For the black and white conversion I used this guide:

    thanks for taking the time to look!!

    Great effect, too bad the soccer net is the background.. Selective coloring always seems to produce nice results!

    I really really like this, the only criticism I could make is if you made the child in black and white also, i'm curious as to see what it would look like, and I think it would change the picture for the better, but then again, that's just my personal preferance.

    good work on the SC... i like this shot... is he the referee in this tug-a-war? or just trying to help? :)

    I agree with the above about the soccer goal and that it might be improved upon with just one element in SC, either one would probably look good. but it's fun the way it is too!

    I like this shot. I agree about the net too, but the selective colour works for me here.
