what a great color key - this picture looked already exciting in the thumbnail view and when opening it, it became even more amazing - color keys are such a tricky terrain because they easily slide into the area of greasy effect images - for me, this one is a perfect sample that they can be great. The rusty gold tells you the story of distruction and the grey surrounding frame everything in this tristesse mood - very toiuching image - I like it a lot

Thnaks everyone. I very rarely use colour popping and, in truth, this hardly needed it. Most of the colour was in the rusty cabinet. As Axel points out the technique can be a bit tacky!
Best wishes,

Andrew
