    I don't like selective color 99/100 times I see it.

    I *do* think you did really well though, your technique is perfect.

    I like the first picture. But, it would have been a lot better if the bird was more in focus.

    Thanks for the comments. I agree the first would be better if it was more in focus. I took these pics shortly after getting my dslr so i was still learning how to shoot but thought they would both be good subjects for selective coloring.

    1 is blurry and too far away.

    2 the subject looks different from the background. it needs more contrast, and I don't think the antennae need colouring. They draw attention away.

    ill be picky and say that the shadows on number two are distracting. Number one is great, i just wish the focus was sharper.

    Nice job on the selective coloring

    I think you did great for the first time using photoshop. I can't even figure it out. Did you just play around until you figured it out or is there some advice you can give me. I just got it this week. I'm so lost. You can pm me if you'd like.

    I like #2, #1 is not in focus and that is just bugging me, however #2 is spot on, however I would fix the poor butterfly's wing :p
