I posted this one in People section. I went back and edited this one and kind of like the way it came out. Without going back to look at the original, what flaws do you see (mostly in the background)?

I desaturated the BG some to get it to blend with some things I cloned out. He is not desaturated, he is that color.

I like it- The background blends well for me.
I'd probably desaturate the flowers as well.

An eye catching street portrait. Agree with Marko re less color in flowers - they take attention away from his face.

Yep - this one is the winner for me. Nice work on the background. I would consider de-saturatingsome of the colour a little (but not totally). The colour on his vest and hat look OK but the flowers and the yellow chair could come done imo
