[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I thought I would try a little selective colour, what I liked and why I took this photo was simply because of it's location, with the actual U-Haul trucks over the road in the background, as for the sign I liked the way the crease in it gives a two tone red and therefore thought it would make a nice selective coloured image. All your thoughts/suggestions are most welcome!



PP resized, duplicate layer, convert to B&W via channels, erased red area to reveal colour, flattened image, sharpened and title/border added.

Love the black sky here Dean - the red on the sign really stands out!! Interesting pp work - nice!

I like the presentation and the desaturation leaving the red sign behind - very artistic and works well as a composition. The picture does look oversharpened however, especially around the red sign.
Thanks for sharing

Hello Dean

I see you like to push the limits also in your post processing. Well done on your gallery. I really like this one for the Arizona feel your captured here. My decendants are from this great state in America's Southwest. Very origianl in your approach and great vision in you work.
