I've always found selective colorization to be an interesting post-processing technique. Properly used, selective colorization can breathe tremendous life into an otherwise drab photo. Even improperly used, it can still make a photo more interesting — or at highlight what the editor found interesting.

Selective colorization is a technique designed to draw our attention to what is supposed to be most important in an image. That's why color is applied to the eyes and lips on a portrait rather than to the ears and chin. So what we colorize tells us something about what we consider important. That means it tells us something about ourselves and what we value.

In this iphone photograph from the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA, I selected the tiny purple flowers that for emphasis (by tiny, I mean that each flower head is about the size of the tip of your pinky finger). They are what I find most important and they are almost certainly what nearly everyone else would have selected as well. But why? Why not the stems or the leaves? What does the selection of the flowers for colorization say about us and what matters most to us?
