Love it. The colour and the subject is fantastic, what a great shot. Well done.

Back to your excellent best. Number 1 is the shot - 2 nothing like the impact. A super technique for street scenes and very eye pulling.

Great image, added a mod and took the colour out of the people on the street as a little distracting for me, but great subject.

spot colour is a matter of personal taste really - it's a bit no-no in the wedding fraternity, though most brides quite like it.. which is odd

When I've done it, and when I've seen it work, it tended to be one colour - think of yellow cabs in new york, just yellow showing and the rest mono. I've done red post boxes and the rest mono...

that kind of thing

so here it looks like you've got the brush and fairly randomly brushed black onto the B&W mask to show some colour through.. and for me, it's not really doing the shot any favours.

If you'd selected the reds on the bus, then maybe, but 1/2 the bus is mono, half colour.

I'd just go full mono - the shot's got interest enough to carry it off. ,

Cheers

I agree with Ade - nice shot and idea but somehow doesnt work and I think its because you have been lazy with your selection technique. Because you have included half the bodies of the people in front of the bus it looks like you have just used the oval marquee tool.

It would have been better as you can see in tigertots mod if it had only been the bus. The positioning of the colour pop is also a bit off being placed in the centre. If you didnt want all of the bus then I would have had the front of the bus in colour fading to B&W towards the back and made sure I didnt include the people.

Try using the polygonal lasso to trace accurately around the area you want in colour and expand the selection by 1 pixel in modify.then return the selected area back to colour this will give a very definate line down the middle of the bus but can then be faded back to B&W using a second selection giving the colour a wide birth apart from the edge half way down the bus; feather the selection and then use the history brush to return to B&W. This should give a nice fade.

Hope this is useful

Ian
