The colour contrasts are superb! Only comment: in my opinion the black background of your site does not allow the merit your photo deserves ;)

Nice idea. I think I am going to learn a lot of post processing skills from you here at am3.

I think you are my fav now, such nice images. Colors, lights, themes, moments, so so so nice and dreamlike.

I like the concept - we're "seeing" the artist "painting" as you have selectively "painted" the photo.

Hey Srinivas, this is exactly what I was talking about. You made my day! :) <br><br>
Nice shot, by the way... and the edges are perfect! I tried to do what you explained and I have discovered I have horribly shaky hands.
