    Selective colour is very much a matter of choice. I'd maybe choose one band of red (on the main lighthouse). But I think this image would be better without.

    that looks really good. I would of only popped the color on the lighthouse though just so it draws your eye to that one object.

    I think I would make the color more subtle, so that its barley there. Great photo :)

    You did well, but maybe tone down the red a little bit so there is more "dirty" and subtlely.

    Is there any tutorials on selective coloring.. or is it a matter of trial and error.
