very clever photo dave thanks
Dave, How did you manage to do that its just majic, Could you please explain without being too technical, Thanks, Bob.
Firstly - to get the narrow depth pf field (Sharp front klart and blurred backgrouynd) I shot using a wide aperture - in this case F/5.6
To get the selective colouring effect there are several ways - but all involve the same principle. Creating a black and white copy of the photograph and overlaying it on top of the colour version - then cutting through the black and white layer to reveal the colour underneath just where you want it.
I use the "Layer mask" method in Photoshop. Similar to this method.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkOiZy8rp48
