    Thank you:wink:

    Oh definately Martin...I always put a plastic bag over my camera when I shoot where there is sand. However, I have never taken my camera to the beach. Can't afford to do that.

    Hi, Seneca -- nice image and cool use of the selective color as the matte color, too.

    Best Regards,

    Thank you.:wink:

    Do you have CS3? I can send you the directions.

    Thank you...I couldn't decide if I should leave it black and white...but I decided that the main subject was the little girl and her main subject was the pail...so I wanted to highlight it. Thanks again.
     
  18. Yo, Seneca! Very nice separation of the pale from the dirt that is in midair.

    Consider using a charcoal or black frame instead of the green one if you haven't already tried that. I think the pale will actually stand out even more. I would also play around with different colors, such as red or yellow, which you also might have done.

    In other words, choose to ignore everything I say except that I really like the image! Don't ignore that. :smile:

    Yo Mike - thanks for the comments. Yes I see what you're talking about. Actually really good advice. I actually had the image (mat) printed in black...so you and I were on the same brain wave. :wink:

    Thanks again!

    I like the matching matte and pail. It emphasizes the color. I can't imagine a black matte looking better, but if that's the way that you printed it, it must have. I have noticed that a black matte makes colors stand out a little better, but I have never tried it on a selective color photo. I'll echo others in saying that I love looking at your posts. It doesn't seem like you are capable of posting a bad photo. Very talented. I'll just keep looking and hopefully one day, I'll learn a little something! :)
