Further Adventures with Photoshop

I have never professed to be anything other than a complete newbie when it comes to photoediting software.  Indeed, I have always left that type of thing to Jeannette, who is many times more creative than I.  However, once again I find that in order to achieve the result that I want, I have to force myself to do some learning in the evening.  I am rapidly seeing the truth of the saying, ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks!’.  Never mind.  Whilst accepting that I never will properly master all of the benefits that can accrue from familiarisation with Photoshop, I have been having a go at one particular aspect tonight.  I have always been impressed with photos that somehow manage to have colour in the middle of a black and white image, so I resolved to learn how it was done.  Now, I am no expert, but after several hours of hair tearing etc, I have come up with two images.  One is my favourite phone box in Antigua, in Nelson’s Dockyard, and the other is of my old RX7 convertible.  I don’t think they are too bad for a first effort.  Let me know what you think  🙂

Until the next time, enjoy.
