Really nice picture but (and of this I am often guilty myself) I do not think that the selective colour really adds to this picture. Perhaps adjusting the levels would have sufficed.

Thanks Stewart, the background sky was a wonderful blue,a welcome sight in most cases but in this instance I felt distracted from the main point of interest -the hoist and chains .So selected the sky in H/S and desaturated it .Kept clicking off the layers to check if it was worth the effort and left it as it is now.Thanks for looking.
