Have to agree,all are great shots - but the Lightning, Vixen, Hurri and Lizzie really do it for me.

Really interesting idea on the colour pop of ZH880 - works well to reduce the background saturation but not completely remove it :)

Great set of photos there! Love the Herc and Lightning ones!
As Ben above has said, saturation on specific colours and areas works well.
