Selective color (day 15)

Today I did not have time to go out and shot new photos for the challenge so I decided to try out a post-processing technique on some of my older photos.

The result of selective coloring is a black&white photo where a part of the photo still is in color. The most famous example is probably the scene(s), from “Schindler’s List” with the little girl in the red coat.

I used GIMP to achieve this effect. Top layer was black&white and bottom layer was in color. I then erased the areas that I wanted in color from the black&white layer and was left with a part black&white, part color photo.

This is the result.
