Red Shoes

I learned a new Photoshop skill yesterday.

Canon XSi, 100mm macro lens
f/2.8, 1/800 second

As always, comments, critiques and criticisms are welcome and appreciated.

Where did you take this?

:-) Neat trick.

Shabbat Shalom.

And the new Photoshop skill is...? Any more detail (desaturate and select the shoe to make it red, or select the shoe to make it red then desaturate the inverse...? or something simpler?)

Nicely done.

It was taken in Hudson River Park in Manhattan.


The process I used is described here (in fact, that's where I learned it from).

This is my first attempt at partial-color tricks.

I approve. The shutter tells me it's daylight, but the vibe is nighttime. Interesting.

How could you look at, let alone post, such a pritzusdik picture?
