Hey guys, new to the forums so just wanted to throw some of my amateur shots out there.

Would appreciate all feedback.

Here are two pictures of my niece, she's grown so much since these photos were taken!

The shot below was taken at a BMX event last summer.

I don't really have any issues with the first shot, but the second one seems to be a little too green for my liking. All I have to say about the third shot is that selective coloring is cheap. I don't recommend it, ever.

1. looks pretty good. 2. Is super, super saturated. I love my saturations (as you'll notice, people mention it occasionally to me, on here lol), but that's even heavy for my taste. 3. What the above post says.

I noticed that myself about the 2nd shot, and the 3rd was the third time i tried selective colouring to be honest.

Advice noted! :)

Thank you both!

I like your color select edit on the third shot, fits well. #1 would be my favorite :)

I wouldnt go that far. It can be really cool if you do it right but its not easy.

I have a couple good ones from NOLA.

This guy was the star of the show so I wanted him to really stand out.

Me and the wife. The background was an awful blue color so i took that out.

This one here has been pretty popular. People tell me it reminds them of Sin City. Fitting since its NOLA.

I have no opinion on selective color, overall. I've never done it in a way that worked for me, so I basically avoid it. However, my issue with this particular one is that my eye is drawn to the blue lettering on the sign, rather than the guy on the bike. I prefer to be drawn *to* the subject, rather than *away*.

The first shot, I like. The second is definitely very saturated, but might be nice, if you tone it down a bit.
