@٭ ƸɼiϾ ٭: Thanks a lot Eric! It actually took a long time. A lot of details and halos to treat carefully. I enjoyed my time doing that :)

what a super cool look down the backs of these cars! chris is right - life seems to have stopped! and i agree with eric, too - the selective colouring in this monochrome is most attractive and well done! chapeau, simone!

@Franz: Hi Franz! Your words make me very happy. It's been a pleasure to resurrect the red color on this monochrome. Bring it back to life.

A fine choice and use of selective color. The traffic really accentuates the feeling of seeing red.

What a stunning shot! I love the fact that everything is grey and red, and how the red stands out. Great processing. This image has such a nice "vibe".

Wonderful selective coloring! From your response to Eric, it sounds as if you did this manually.
