Brilliant image, while others have noted before, the conversing chairs and color contrast..., the most appealing elements works for me here is the second chair and the long shadow that it cast on the cobbled floor , it looks like he (my preconception is a "he") is trying to make a private conversation to the first chair.

Very cool image. The selective color really works in this one. Well done.

Refreshing, quiet red & grey. Thanks.

They have all said so many beautiful things about this image. What can I add? Nothing, but I love it and I'll vote.

I love those "talking" chairs.

I'm still laughing at Jude. You've done a great job here. I can't decide whether the chairs in the foreground are that grey or whether there's a clever de-sat going on. Either way it made me think, which is never a bad thing.

Such a strange combination of images. Well done!

Cool image, Niall ... I like the combo of B/W and colour ...
The RED is wonderful! ;)

Odd bit of business with the selection. The red breaks up the background, draws you right to the window and out it.

Great color. The light is good too creating some lumpy shadows on the bricks.

This wouldn't have worked without selective coloring. The red panels gives this pop and the low perspective is very nice. It is like a tale of two images becoming one. Bravo.

I've peed myself.. i hope you're happy.. these are so fantastic!
The main one with it's lighting from the back.. giving shadows and texture to the cobblestone ground.. Although the chairs might look like they're in disarray to some.. to me they seem to have a life of their own without the need for people.. like they are having a conversation.. probably about how awesome the light is..

That or why they are colorless amidst the red window parts and golden glow of the city.
