Hi Kent, The selective coloring works great on this interesting guy trying to look cool. Hope the cigar smoke wasn't blowing your way :-) VOTE ! Sandy

Amazing treatment. He looks like someone that I would NOT want to upset! This makes me wonder what he is looking at and what he is thinking right at this very moment....so a perfect catch by you.

Straight off the range - 'cept his boots and blue jeans are too clean. Love how your selective coloring really makes him even more the odd man out, Kent.

The reminds me of the lyrics to the soundtrack of the movie 'Mid-Night Cowboy':
"Everybody's talking at me.
I don't hear a word they're saying,
Only the echoes of my mind.
People stopping staring,
I can't see their faces,
Only the shadows of their eyes.

I'm going where the sun keeps shining
Thru' the pouring rain,
Going where the weather suits my clothes,
Backing off of the North East wind,
Sailing on summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stone."

Great composition and selective desaturation.

I like your title, and accurate color/B&W work, and sure, pose and expression of model, not too usual for Texas (Texas cowboys are smiling), but possibly OK for NYC :)
Sheila13-Dec-2006 03:42
Wow, he's got some attitude! Love the treatment.
