    After just spending 7 weeks in a cast with a broken wrist, and 3 metal pins holding one of my bones together I am now finally healed. Here is a shot I took of the metal pins that were removed from my arm a couple of days ago. I selectively desaturated most of the image, leaving the blood stains on the pins :confused: to draw the attention to them... let me know if you think it works in this case.

    Also, if you have a strong stomach and don't mind blood, then check out the video of the doctor removing the pins. You've been warned....

    Br00tal video dude.

    The photo is nice. This is one of the rare occurrences where selective coloring works for me. Kudos. ;)

    Yeah I think it works here too. And no, I'm not watching that.

    That's crazy. How did you break it?

    I agree - normally I hate selective color, but I think it works here.

    I broke it skiing, hit a jump and made a mess of the landing.

    This is what it looked like before the surgery:

    Also note the dislocated bone in my hand....

    Hahaha gross! I broke my wrist snowboarding but didn't need pins. Just two surgeries for a tfcc tear because my first surgeon was an idiot.

    The selective colouring definitely works here; but I'm not sure it was completely necessary! :p It doesn't seem like there is very much colour to begin with!

    @ Jaxx: I also broke my wrist snowboarding! Not fun! No pins (or surgery) for me though :) Thankfully! YUCK!
