Selective Color

It's Day Eleven. Yes, I have skipped Day Ten for now. I will get back to it but for now it is on to Day Eleven, Selective Color. That means choosing a portion of the photo to be in color with the rest in black and white. It is actually quite easy to do though a little time consuming. Here is my original photo.

Here is my photo using some selective color.

What do you think? I'm still not sure of I am a fan of this or not. I think it takes the right photo and it is really easy to make it look really garish. But it is a technique that some people really love. More to come in a few days.

I like what you did. I've always wanted to do that with a picture of Katie leaving her eyes blue. I know, I know, you'd say "that's easy".

It really isn't that hard. Just time consuming because you need to "paint".
