I like the concept of the selective colouring very much. The contrast between the pretty colours of the tree and the b/w in the rest of the image gives it a good atmosphere. As Bella sid, the colour bled into the grass a little bit but ive had my own battles with the focal b/w thingy too, so i feel you on that smile

I really like the colours of the leaves and fruit on the tree. smile The trunk is at an amazing angle, makes you wonder how it stays upright.

I'm not so sure about the buildings and grass behind the tree also being coloured.
Tinuke Ayanbadejo: Thanks Ellie smile
I love your use of selective coloring...thats creative!
Tinuke Ayanbadejo: Glad u like it Dotun smile Thanks

Tinuke, I will be gentle with you.

Eeeccck. (Gentle enough? smile)

Selective colour in images is an art form on it's own (I have used it to my peril in the pasts and been slaughtered by the good folks in here) that we all are trying to master.

Use of picasa to do this is very risky, it has to fit in with the image you are working with and for this shot, it does not fit in.

Conversion to monochrome, not working, I see u used a B&W conversion in picasa, a trick for getting better quality conversions to B&W in picasa is to hit "TINT" and apply.

So for me I see a flat over exposed image with sloppy selective colour. Always think of what you want the veiwer to see and what type of reaction you want from the viewer or what type of reaction you would have if you saw the image on another post.

It's not about the camera but what you do with the tools at your disposal, learn how to bring out the best in what you have, know the absolute limitations of your tolls, then you will be able to make these tools and equipement work for you.

Have a look at the series Sinem is running on my blog, all taken with a £200 point & shoot camera.
