I like the composition and conversion. An interesting image. I understand the colour pop and it certainly draws attention to the lone jogger on the bank however I'm not sure it needs it. I think the image would work well if not better without the selective colour here.

Colour popping is a great technique when done well but for me it can so often make a good image appear a little gimmicky if that makes sense.

I do like this however.

I'm not really a lover of popping either but the runner was a bit insignificant so I gave it a go.

I agree I just find it a bit naff but that's just me Smile

Mixed feelings here too, I'm not wild about the technique but.... What this does convey to me is the way nature has turned mono, the only colour in the world at the moment is man-made.

Moira, that's a good way of looking at it. Most of my colour pic were just grey with a touch of beige, a combination of Paris and the weather. Human added the colour especially runners.
