    What is your technique?
    I've been using this technique for a while now and I really like it because it can make a world of a difference in some exposures.

    i was looking for some help so "thenikonguy" mentioned that there are video tutorials on YouTube so I went and saw the first one that came up.
    it was pretty simple and straight forward.

    open the picture in Photoshop.
    right click on the fill/create layer mask and choose black and white.
    simply set the main color to black and then select your brush.
    hold down the brush over the area where you want the color to show.
    if you make a mistake then change the color from black to white and go over the area with the brush where you made the mistake ... it will get converted to black/white.

    SIMPLE AS THAT.

    is it grabbing attention that much? i figured since the flower is in color so that should grab the eye first.
