Was watching my son plractice his guitar again, and shot some quick shots handheld, as I had an idea for a shot.

He got this necklace from his aunt, and loves it. I wanted a shot to show it off for her...

Which do you prefer?

TIA

if you want to do selective color, i would color the guitar. but i like the first shot better, as i don't like the guitar pic in the center of the picture being the focus... it makes it look too much like a fender ad.

I strongly prefer the color version, I feel like the selective color pulls my attention away from the subject to much. That being said, I very very rarely see a selective color photo that I like, It just isnt my thing. So FWIW

i agree with trevor...
i think that the necklace doesn't get overlooked in the colored picture.

Thanks for the comment......this was the reason for this pic:

yeah, i realize that after i typed it, but i went with it anyway just to tell you how i would go about selective coloring it. the necklace is definitely apparent in the colored photo. actually, the composition of the colored photo makes you look at everything in the picture... leaving nothing overlooked. the necklace will definitely be shown off, and his aunt will love the picture of him and the necklace, as well as the fact that you put so much love and effort into the photos and sentiment of the gift. :)
