I ran downtown at lunch for a long overdue haircut. As I walked from my car to 77, I happened across this spot of color. And yes, I really was the girl kneeling on the sidewalk, taking a photo of a garbage bin.
Good eye! I’m trying to figure out how you did that with the color. Really cool.
thanks, birdpress! the quick how – I created a second layer in photoshop, desaturated the original layer to turn it b&w, then made the second layer – still in color – active and used the lasso function to outline the garbage bin and the lower portion of the wall before applying a layer mask (which essentially took the colored portion I had just outlined and applied it on top of the original now-desaturated layer). If that makes any sense .. 🙂
