I took this photo from the street car in New Orleans of a man sitting on the newspaper box waiting for the city bus.I used selective coloring, but in the opposite way as expected.New Orleans, Louisiana, USANikon Coolpix L110

I dabble in photography just for fun. I love taking pictures and I love editing them with my software.
Most so called selective colouring is of the Red Post Box variety but there is so much more potential in the technique. This picture emphasise the urban environment like a stage where the ordinary everyday stories play against. I like it. A lot.
He’s looking a little grey, poor fellow … ;-)Sorry Rosalie, couldn’t resist!!!Very interesting take on s/c, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the ‘reverse’ applied before :-)Cool capture from your street car :-)))
thanks…he is a little grey, isn’t he?
Didn’t realize this was yours, Rosalie! We seem to have similar tastes. :) I like the way you reversed the colour selection and coloured everything EXCEPT the gentleman! Very nice effect!
thanks…i got the idea of “reversing” the selective coloring from another redbubble member who had some amazing images…her member name is “awefaul”…check it out!
Thanks for the tip. I have checked her website. I will have to try that!
