The Isle of Capri in Italy is jammed with tourists in the summer. In Capri town, a tour guide holds an umbrella aloft so that her group knows who to follow in the crowd.
A super shot. I like the use of selective color; it gives lots of impact.

@Calusarus: Many thanks, Frederic.
the tour guide doesn't look too pleased :) Good selective coloring to focus the attention on your main subject - the umbrella.

@Radel: No she wasn't pleased. Thank you, Radel.
Just when I think I've seen the best possible usage of focal black in white or colour selection, I see a wonder...way to go, you never disappoint :)

@Lorraine: I'm glad to hear that. Thank you, Lorraine.
That lady's facial expression tells a lot of her daily routine. Thanks god I'm an individual tourist. :-) Effective colour setting, btw!

@Giovanni: Many thanks, Giovanni.
A very cool shot and postprocessing. She doesn't seem to happy with the task...

@Mirko Herzner: I agree. Thank you, Mirko.
I don't think crowds are 'her thing' by her expression. ;D
As others have said, this is a terrific use of selective color, Michael, and I love that fact that only the guide's face is in focus!

@Judy: Yes, the others are faceless tourists. Thank you, Judy.
I like the selective coloring and focus - really places the emphasis right where you want it.

@willow: I agree. thank you, Willow.
Very clever treatment, Michael. She really does look like she can't wait for the end of the day! But hey! - sometimes the tourist group can be a real pain in the you know what - so maybe she looked a lot different the next day!

@dobbino: Thanks, Rob. I'm sure she has her troubles.
The look on her face won't get her a tip at the end..! Your processing has given this shot real impact.

@Elaine-: Thanks so much, Elaine.
The very interesting connection of colour from B&W. I like woman's face keeping the fabulously colourful umbrella :)

@beanow: Thank you, Beanow.
She looks very determined, wouldn't like to mess with her.

@Jasp: Yes, she has a job to do and she will certainly do it. Thanks, Richard.
I really like the selective color you did in this shot. The bright colorful umbrella really livens the scene up! Nice shot!

@Andy: Many thanks, Andy.
Great selective coloring Michael. The tour guide certainly doesn't look very pleased with her job. Maybe she doesn't like being in crowds..:D

Very nice - not only the colouring which does look amazing but also the focus on the guide's face. Really nice!

@Fabio: Many thanks, Fabio.
Freakin' fantastic, Michael!! Between the selective colour and the woman's expression this image is just perfect.

@amy: Thank you, Amy. I seemed to not mind the woman's head being partially cut off because it made her look swamped, which went with her expression.
lol! very nice selective color! i like this a lot! :D
