Noooo! It is selective saturation, and evidently I am using a sufficiently subtle hand on it ;)

I was inspired by another thread on selective coloring. I actually use selective saturation on almost all the color photographs I make, which ain't very many.

Placing bright highlights immediately next to dark areas, to create tension?

Specular highlights, absent diffuse highlights?

Well, that too ;) There are various traditional elements of composition blah blah blah. Light spreads diagonally, line this, grouping that, light and dark, Rembrandt etc. Most of THAT, of course, is "put in" to the photograph by selecting the frame that sucks least from the wide collection of variants I shot.

Isn't that what we all do...SPRAY and PRAY to the Photog Gods for a decent image.

PS - For those that don't have a sarcastic bone in your body...this is sarcasm.

Yeah, I'm trying out a new thing. I used to take a bunch of pictures and post the worst one.
