2nd place in the 100% Selective Coloring competition in ! 100% ! Limit 2 per day, May 2011

Winner of the $20 top prize from the United: Australia, UK, USA And Canada, Selective Colour challenge, July 15th, 2011

Featured in Colour Splash, September 10th, 2011

This is quite possibly my personal favourite since embarking on my new photography hobby. Let me know your thoughts folks.

Shot taken at Holy Island (Lindisfarne), Northumberland, with a Panasonic Lumix G1, 14-45mm lens on July 31st, 2009.

Three separate exposures merged into HDR via Lightroom, Photomatix and CS3. Selective colouring then carried out in CS3.

Much, much better when viewed in large format I feel.

Full colour also available:

The Castle & The Boat
