  1. Selective colour is one of those things where I never quite know how I feel about it, but here it seemed appropriate

    Actually, I hardly noticed the selective colour thing at all in this pic. And I do know how I usually feel about it. Nice job. May I ask why? Was the door/fence thing behind the scooter a distracting colour?

  4. No, it wasn't particularly distracting, I just felt that removing the colour from the background helped to make the Vespa pop out. See what you think (uncropped image)

    P9030191-ORIG.

    This is only the second time I've tried selective colour I think, with a similar type of subject: Red Vespa, Red Mini

    I couldn't even tell it was selective color. The vespa just effectively pops red.

    But then again, im colorblind and this subtle pp is a good example of how some of us see the world.

    What did use LuckyP? The color tool in silverefex?

    I normally (read: always) hate selective colour, but have to admit that this is very effective; much better than the full colour shot....

    Having broken my oath of non-selectivecolourness handed down through generations, I'm off to commit Hari Kari now.... :th_salute:

    This is actually a good example of where this technique works.

    BTW, Bokeaji: Being a fanboy of art filters makes perfect sense since this is one of those things that is purely a matter of taste.

  12. Yep, Silver Efex. I don't know if I'm doing it the most effective way but I set about 10 different control points on the scooter and the warning sign to cover all shades of orange/red and pulled the selective colorization slider up to 100% on each.
