North Beach Revisited

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 14 August 2015 in Miscellaneous.

Ruthie made the suggestion that I process the image in b&w and use selective color on the umbrella. The original image was posted on Sunday 8/9. I think that I like this version better. Thanks Ruthie! What do you think?

I scrolled back to look at the other version. I think your use of selective colour here enhances the visual impact of the image. Nicely done

Yes, this is an excellent piece of processing. I like this better than the full colour version. It's fun to tinker, isn't it?

Beautiful also ! I think I prefer the color one for the scene with people very speaking . This one is more artistic . Each has its own feeling ..

Yah this is awesome, Elaine! I had a software that was pretty easy to use where you could do this kind of thing but I lost it...

Jolies couleurs pour ce parasol. On dirait une fleur dans le reste de ce paysage en Noir et Blanc.
C'est réussi.
