One More B&W...Well Not Quite B&W

I've been anxious to post this photo that I finished editing a couple days ago.

 I am really happy with how it turned out.  I had this in my editing queue for a couple months because I liked it but wasn't sure how to make it good enough to meet my standards for putting on the website.  I've been experimenting with a technique I am calling the "Not Quite" style where I edit the photo in color, then in B&W and slightly bring back a hint of color by slightly reducing the opacity of the B&W layer.  In other words it's not quite color, yet not quite B&W. I'm by no means saying this is anything new, but it's something I'm experimenting with for some photos.  In this particular photo I vignetted it heavily to go along with the tunnel effect created by the 8-15mm Fisheye lens I used to take this shot.
