Came across this roll of film while hiking last March.
Great shot! The technique works really well there! :) Probably the best use of it I've ever seen!

I agree! That was something that I was aiming for with my kodak shot. I think the effect is cool when you get a symbolic result.

Very cool + 1. I like, as in the filmcarthridge one, when it it is used on rustic elements:)

Below are two tests I conducted with my old Canon P&S about 9 years ago.  I desaturated the colors and then hand painted sections in Photoshop, and added a lot of noise to make them look like old crusty photos.

Nice look, you should make a plug-in it looks very realistic like a very old photo  :)

Hi guys,
I am new here and also a great fan of B&W with selective colors.
Just for you to know, there is special group on Facebook (www.facebook.com/colorsplashstudioapp), devoted to selective coloring, some inspiring stuff might be found there.

This is was the only leaf that was not completely dried among the others. So tried to depict it.

I made one for my eldest son (he is 3 1/2 years old) and has an avid fascination with firetrucks and ambulances.

Nice pics. Good to see other people's work. Thanks for posting. Colour popping can be used too much, but then so can HDR and other effects. It can look really nice.

This is one of mine. It's taken using picture styles (skd picture style, can't remeber if it was Ruby or Perl, they both desaturate green). I was going to crop but I quite like it as it is as it provides a sense of scale.

Nice shots. I've been interested in trying this approach. Can you outline the basic process for doing this? Thks

I think it is fun to explore this approach. However, sa I am very new to photoshop, I have not yet learned to use mask tool yet, so when I try to make the black white part rougher, it affects the part with the colors too....
