    shot this flower in my back garden beacause of the way it reaches up like a hand. I've desaturated the background and left just the buds in colour. Not sure if I like this effect What do you think?

    I'd like to see the green part in the middle coloured too... the red seems too disconnected, and if you don't see that they're connected you kind of lose the context.

    Id like to see it with the green also, the reds a bit overpowering, maybe if you desaturated it a tad?

    Soryr man. You lost my attention ;). It didn't so anything for me except bug me with the bad colouring job.

    I'd like to see some green in it too. It's empty.

    LMAO - well it goes to show that it is entirely a matter of personal taste - I love the B&W version.
