    I like it , but i find the red wall on the right distracting with the over-saturation of the color, I still like it

    Hah! I like it too, but I love the red leading to red at distance.....
    My issue is with the thin pink slice sneaking into the frame on left....lot more distracting....I would crop to the right of the person in bottom left pavement.
    Cheers!

    Nice shot, but I agree with Gatto that the red is a bit over the top. Where was this?

    I love how you seek out colorful images....of course you tend to shoot in an environment rich in such scenes. I don't know how much you may have boosted the color in this shot but I like the final result. I do think the suggestion by Taz for a slight cropping has merit.

    Take care.

    All right, I cropped the pink on the left: it was distracting.
    The reds were tweaked a very little to attract the eye and it worked as intended. This is a common red in the Bajío and is very saturated with no help from software; it's what I love about Méjico.

    This is in San Miguel Allende, Guanajuato, Richard, right in Cristero Rebellion country.

    I love San Miguel, I still think that the vibrance is too high on this shot. Nice shot and place though.

    Love the shot, re-cropped or not. I don't mean to pile on with the others, but do also agree that the reds and other colors are too saturated and look unreal. Hey, we have seen that cathedral before, haven't we?

    Both are great, but convey different feelings. I prefer the cheerfulness of the color version.

    The black and white version is very good. Red is an eye magnet. I can hardly see anything else in the color version.

    @Cornflake said:> The black and white version is very good. Red is an eye magnet. I can hardly see anything else in the color version.

    As I said earlier, I included the red to bring the eye into the foto and it worked as intended.
