Wondering as seen a image thread on Selective Color images. Made a couple of myself tho not in a habit of doing a lot of this type. And find some interesting and compelling to look at. But time and time again see photographers commenting negatively about it. Many calling it a gimmick or crutch? and other terms akin to the HDR hate. Tho seen some HDR especially natural looking that I liked as well. And of course can be applied wrongly or over the top like some HDR. But it isn't a valid expression of a photographers vision? Or that is just the impression I get. So could just be my off-kilter perceptions. Just wondering others take on this? .
