  • - this is Mother Nature’s selective color – as it was a drab, grey, wet, snowy day, and the only thing that had color was the lady’s red jacket – and it was subdued in the original pic. The contrast was enhanced in the hopes of adding more zip to the image – the original image – below – is straight from the camera – no adjustments. It was taken from the car window. As you can see the red coat had (muted) color (which the camera underexposed) & the overall pic is a dingy grey.

    Absolutely awesome, Laurie. Perfect SC editing, really warms up that cold winter scene:) Sandy

  • Thank you, Sandy! Actually this wasn’t SC, but an actual gray, gloomy, windy & very cold day! And snow had also just begun to fall. Just upped the contrast in this image ;

  • Thank you, Sharon! But I didn’t add SC, just increased the contrast as it was a gloomy, miserable day ;
