Your anonymous opinion doesn’t really matter to me. Maybe if you put a name or a portfolio behind that statement I would care a bit more and take it into account.
In general I absolutely hate shit like selective coloring, actually. I’ve done it twice in the time I’ve been shooting and both times I temporarily questioned my sanity for liking it. But, the two times I’ve done it I liked it. There’s going to be people that love and hate what I shoot no matter how I shoot it, what the content is or how I choose to retouch it.
Plus, everything is gimmicky at this point, quite frankly.
