Additional Information

In photography, this process is called Selective Coloring
Please access the link above to see some works created in this manner.
I am not expecting quite B&W +1, we can go with + 2 or even +3 more colors, if they are a very fractional part of the image.
♦ Black/Dark & White/Light – has to be the dominant colors.
Black can be substitute with any dark color; same with white.
♦ The main idea is the image has clearly show monochrome intent

♦ I hope you will enjoy this challenge. Since I know not many of the ,members are creting such, I will keep this challenge running for 2 weeks, thus giving some time everyone interested in participating, in creating something new
♦ Enjoy
