What lens did you use for this one, it is lacking in sharpness just a tad, just like the kind of photo my Sigma lens always gives me at its full 300mm, but I cannot afford to get myself anything better, I'm afraid.
And if you hadn't said that this was a selective colouring, I would have taken the colour of the pavement and the wall for granted ... it was browner, more yellowish, I assume? What made you try your hands at sel-col right here and now and with THIS photo?
I was using a 28-90mm f4 canon lens, this is a scanned photograph like the rest of my shots. I agree about this lacking sharpness as my favorite photo lab guy went on holiday and left a trainee in his shop. I tried selectice coloring on this one as the color of the wall was really a dull yellow.
