Yeah, I'm not so sure about these. You're right, this has been done to death. Unless I'm shooting a wedding or portrait shoot when I know the client wants this, I try to avoid just doing this for the sake of doing it. Personally, these 2 photos don't do anything for me. The idea is really neat and when its done right, to the right image, I think it can be a nice effect. I'm not sure what these 2 images are trying to say though.

I prefer the second one to the first. I like the super-saturated look of the surrounding. It also reminds me of the shots I get get using a Hoya R72 IR filter, before I correct the colours.

I'm not so sure it looks super saturated, its just all pink. ?? If ALL the colors in the image were oversaturated it might be more interesting. I think that with it being all pink, the guy sitting looks like he was just pasted on there. Try this one again, except leave the pink out and try one with over-sat. the background and then one with muted colors in the backg. BTW, which method are you using with these photos?
