    Actually, as much as I like the B&W, I think in this case the soft muted colors work better for me, more suited for the subject.

    Thanks.

    At the risk of offending, here's a version where the background and table get a saturation adjustment of -60%... ?

    I think it's a beautiful image, just that the background and table were a bit too... pink.


    In toned monochrome, a tighter cropping (ouch) and sharpening only the shavings and the edge of the basket ? Again, I'll gladly delete these if I am stepping over the line.

    The pink didn't bother me - I kind of like it a smidge better. Definitely colour over BN.

    Sorry Ken, but in your version it looks like it was taken in morgue, the only thing missing is a cadaver on the slab.
