personally I think if it adds to the story of the image then why not
The first time I saw selective coloring was in the 'Schindler's List' movie. The whole movie was done in black and white. At the end a scene was shot where dead bodies were being carted away, and a little girl in a red coat was one of the victims. Talk about emotional! But it gave that scene something that could not have happened any other way. Everyone in the theater came away with tears.
Concerning trends, we are of the same mind. I was told that my tastes are irrelevant even in my own photos that I take for myself. I was told that "current trends blah blah blah..." When people tell me things like that, and continue attacking me despite explaining the way I see it, they get blocked. So go for what pleases you. If others don't like it, they can go jump in a lake.
