Photo of the day: Elizabeth 221

Here's an image of Elizabeth that's truly desaturated, not black and white or near-black and white but actually in color, just tweaked for interesting emphasis. Specifically, and you can guess this from looking at the image, I chose to highlight the reds of the skin and drape, and the blue of the eyes, and withdraw color from everything else. It creates a very interesting sense of heightened reality with a wonderful texture. The tight framing really works in this composition, too.
