Im used to doing these selective colour type effect the manual way in Photoshop where you just brush in by hand with layers. It’s very boring that way and tricky getting it right. While playing with OnOne Phototools 2.6 I came across this effect that I’d not seen before. It’s a little hit and miss as you need bold colours it can pick up easily but the skin/people option worked really well for this photo and so easy!

This was a photo I was going to throw away, was a terrible shot the sky was a white husk and other then Ben and the bus was nothing else. I was however bored and kept working at it.
Big Ben and a red bus, pretty much sums up London.
A little parade of shops taken late at night, if you click the image will also take you to the colour version.
This is quite a nice black and white version of the colour one I posted yesterday with an old photo type effect. This was done with Silver Efex Pro 2 Photoshop plugin, if you like black and white worth trying.
