    The color and contrast in this are so saturated. How did you achieve this effect?

    I typically use a lot of layers with varying blending mode opacities in Photoshop. For this one I oversaturated the original and then used a black and white (grayscale) version pasted over the top using the saturation blending mode. Then I used a layer opacity mask on the saturation layer to cut out what I still wanted to keep in color. Finally I decreased the opacity of the saturation layer to 87.5 to lightly tint the grayscale areas with their underlying color. Hope that wasn't to complicated an explanation!

    That's cool. I'm inspired to play around more in Photoshop-thanks! Really great result.
