[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
while walking around an old steam engine on display near a public park, I noticed this inauthentic item near the back of the machine.
Looks like somebody was drinking in the park when they were interrupted and left their expensive whisky (Canadian spelling) and energy drink behind.
I desaturated the colours save for the whisky bottle to make it stand out more.

Good thinking, the selective desaturation does make the whisky bottle stand out. I think, however, that you should have turned the other bottle a bit, because the label really makes us want to read it - distracting our attention from the intended subject. In fact, I think there's more of a story if you leave out the second bottle completely.
Just my 2 cents, of course ;o). TFS
