What a Difference a Color Makes! (Two Photographs)

In the first photo I reduced the luminosity of the greens and increased the yellows. The B&W is there simply because I tried it. I have to start with a good base, and that is why I am showing my two trials. Color or B&W is a fork in the road; after having taken the decision to go with color, the next decision relates to what I think can be enhanced. Backgrounds are a good place to start, as we do not want them to distract, we want them to frame a subject. Just for the record my technique in Photoshop was to use a B&W adjustment layer and then change the layer’s blending mode to luminescence, which brings back the color. The B&W adjustment layer now allows you to change the colors.
