Winter has arrived in Inveraray but hasn't deterred one local from sitting outside at the pavement cafe in the rain.
A very new venture for me. tried my hand at selective black and white as I thought it suited the grey November day. Would be interested in your thoughts on this one.

I think this subject lends itself very well to selective colour retention, and I like the final result, Mary: yes, you can sense how wet it has been from the pavement and dripping canopy, yet one gent insists on taking the air.

I love selective colour used effectively and this one is a fine example of an image where it is used very effectively indeed.

I like it, but why not upload the original as V2 so we have something to compare with?

Thanks for uploading the colour shot Mary. I can see what prompted you to use selective colour, - theres so little colour in the original.



I loaded a mod with a compromise that may also work, - de saturating the image to leave a little colour, but the chef is still full colour. I toned down the glare on his apron also.


Thanks for checking in on my Persian shot. Im not fond of cats myself, and usually have allergies, but I spent time with this one without any problems at all, - unusual for me.


regards


Willie
