Nice. It's been a pretty bad fire season for you guys down there this year.

Good use of selective color. And I rarely say that.

Same here.

I think the reason it's working here (and I'm sure some will still disagree) is because it fits more naturally. I mean, color or not, burned trees sort of turn black. Smoke sort of has this graying effect which washes out color. So I'd kind of be expecting this kind of scene to look sort of like this anyway, even if it didn't use selective color. Without seeing a comparison, my mind just thinks this is a stylistic exagerration of what the scene looked like, rather than a vast departure from what the scene looked like.

Of course, my mind might change if you showed me the original image.

I agree. That's what I thought when first viewing this image.

Gives a sense of desolation.
