Re: Who's image is better, Carsten Krieger's or mine?

I think the main problem with this picture is that the subject (the ruin) inherently has less visual impact than its surroundings, primarily due to its relative lack of color. I decided to "take the challenge" to see if I could start from that perspective and alter the photo to give the subject more relative presence. Working only in Apple Aperture I completely desaturated it so I could concentrate on tone, did a bunch of adjustments, then put a little saturation back in, but much less than the original. What do you think of this approach?

Attempt to increase subject interest.
