  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)

    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.
