    These work for me! My favorite is the deer. That's an especially nice effect.

    Love the squirrel clap.gif.

    However, my first reaction to the deer was that he was choking on a ball eek7.gif

    Not working for me, but then I'm not a fan of selective color. The turkey shot is a good composition. All color might have been better. Now, that deer -- is just weird.

    rolleyes1.gif Its an effect that has to grow on you. Not a huge fan of it either but at times it works and sells.

    Nope didn't miss it, that's why it looks unfinished to me. It screams, "Color in the rest of me!" For example, on the deer the entire apple is red, not half of it.

    To me one of the great things about a Turkey is all the color detail when you get close enough to see it. To show a portion of that detail makes me want more, or make it all B&W. Just my .02, the important thing is that you like it.

    Strongest pic of the 3 (imo) to play around with in the first place, is the first - but if mine, I'd be considering cropping out the bg, to fill the frame with the subject's texture / details.

    As regards b/w or selective colouring - if some punters want to buy such images, then go for it :)
