Love the effect, how did you do it. The only way I was aware was to have one layer in colour and another in black and white and erase one but that would have taken you ages!!

Hey Stevvie,

Haven't heard from you, I hope I didn't scare you off lol.
I like the use of selective color, it is over done here, but still fun to play with.
The areas I think you need to look are the way the subject is lit. The lighting is too hard and is causing her to squint. So what to do?

One is to wait until 1 before sunset to create a more pleasing angle and color of light. The next thing you can do is one of two things, either use a reflector or a diffuser to soften the light and help bring out the eyes of the subject. You chose a fairly difficult 1st image to try and I like your moxie. So this will soften the hard shadows, on the forehead and face as well as reducing the reflections of her glasses on her facial cheeks. This will in turn make eyes appear larger and bring out a much more pleasing facial expression.

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask there is a very large and friendly community here to help you create great images.

Cheers,


Les Baldwin

comments & criticism are good, it's the best way to learn.
adrian5127, the effect is actually built into my Canon S5IS and is called 'Color accent' in the scene menu.

Stevvie,
I agree with Les about the lighting but I like the effect as it is, but then everyone has a different opinion!
