I like the way you have both photos and bouquets to you for mastering a new technique.

Learning how to do this trick is so much. You did a marvelous job.

When I first learned it, I converted quite a few of my shots to selective coloring.

So whats the next trick to learn?

Great! The red door is a focal in both shots.

Linda (PA_shutterbug) said...

The red door stands out in both pictures. I like what you did with the B&W selective coloring picture.

It's nice to see the fun you are having with your editing. :)

Pondside said...

Wow - you're setting the bar high! I'll have to do some homework. I like colour selection - it really works with the green and red.

Kathiesbirds said...

Good for you! It came out very nice! I love this technique though I do not have photoshop and I have never tried it! I have done it with pencil drawings and pencil crayons.

Kmoyama said...

Wow! Great job done! I have Photoshop 7 and often use it for retouching, but I have never tried selective coloring. Your phot looks very professional. I am impressed with this one.
