THIS IS COOL!!!! I love it! You did it so precisely....I've tried doing effects like this in Photoshop, but I have yet to figure out how to make selections precisely. Very fine work!

Wow.. yes very cool! I love how you used the selective color on just the children. HOw is it that you did that so well? I don't have steady hands! But it brings a feeling of modern and history all rolled into one photograph! Awesome!

I think those two are talking about the "constitution".

I can't do the selective desaturation thing either! This is superb.

Eww...looks like comment spam has hit blogger :(

On to the photo. I like the selective color on this shot. It really brings the kids to my attention and then my mind start making stories about what's going on. I was there as a kid, around that age & can only remember how bored I was and that I couldn't wait to get back to the hotel to play in the swimming pool :)

I love this technique and just can't ever think of the right picture to do it with. This one turned out just fantastic! Visually it says "I'm a kid and I don't care about any of my surroundings right now!" LOL
