    So cool, and the selective colour processing really does bounce it into the viewers eye, beautiful.

    Very striking Madeline! The selective color process really does it! Plus, the way you composed the shot.

    Did you use a mask to show the red?

    Love that red wheel Nice detail and the black trim even shines in the light. I love slective coloring and red always shines through with that. One of my juried pieces was done in that style.

    This is not so much a criticism but a “wonder if you can”…..could you straighten the truck in the background? I know its attached, but wonder if you can (without changing the quality).

    That might be a shot, they would like to hang there.

      Thanks Terri! I wasn’t even paying attention to the background.
      I went back to the original photo and re-did it. When I tried straightening the first one from the blog, too much of the arc disappeared. Great catch!

    Very nice. The selective coloring on this really makes the shot. The wheel is very nicely placed in the shot as well.

    Stupendous Madelaine! the composition on this is amazing and the processing is even more amazing! I love that bright red wheel against the black and white background, what a contrast! Also, I love how you tamed the “distracting” parts of the image by changing them to black and white….it really leads your eyes to that bright red eye candY!

    Hello Madelaine! Wow! . . . is about the best I can come up with right now since everyone else has already covered about anything I could or would say about this shot! This is stupendous! Great post-processing too. Really outstanding.

    Thanks so much for your marathon phone instructions session today. Really appreciate your efforts and assistance.

    Wow!! The red against the B&W makes it scream look at me I`m an Arc. Great composition as well.

  8. Bobbie says:

    The angle is great, but it’s the selective coloring that snaps the attention right to the wheel.

  9. Mary Lou says:

    Beautiful selective color. The red and black pop right out against the B&W. Clever idea for the theme.

    I really like the selective coloring as well, I’m sure you got plenty of shots of this old fire truck.
