I was attracted to the contrast between the subject's inverted vertical position and the strong horizontal elements in the background. In Lightroom I used the HSL panel to selectively adjust the colours. Basically I set all of the saturation levels to zero creating a grayscale image. I increased the red, orange and blue saturation until I got the effect I was looking for. I increased the red and orange luminosity slightly and darkened the blue. I left the saturation of the other colours at -50 to bring out the grayness of the concrete.  I cropped the image  into a horizontal format and finished with some sharpening and clarity tweaks.
