Weekly Photo Challenge: colour

Short one today. I wanted to get the post finished reasonably quickly so I went for a quick selective colour. Easy to do in Photoshop. Duplicate a layer, convert the duplicate to Black and White, add a layer mask and then invert it. You can then paint the colour out.

    Stunning… I love the concentrated colors on the man and boat. 🙂

      Elizabeth, thank you for all of your comments today. When I photographed this I knew that sometime I would do something different with it..

        I love when we have something we tuck away hoping to use at the right moment and that moment arrives. TY! 🙂

        … TY! I’ve been on hiatus from WP blogging and finally thawing out to get back on track. Naturally, I’m way, way behind.

    Great color. I like this technique and I think you have it mastered. Excellent capture.

      Just takes a little time and patience Yvonne.

    Thank you for adding me to your related articles list? 😀 And you shot is amazing, I must add. Well done on the photoshop, and thanks for mentioning the technique! I’m off to try it now! 🙂

    Now that is something I do enjoy doing. I love the effect of selective colouring of a b/w image.
    Have you ever tried it the old fashioned way? I dabbled for a while, but it’s far easier on the PC.


    • Mike Hardisty April 8, 2013 / 16:31

      I’ve only done selective colouring a couple of times and usually use the PC.

    Well done, Mike. These pockets of colour are always fun to do, aren’t they! I wish I had thought of this technique for this challenge.

      Seemed like a good idea at the time….
