Add a little color.
by Yvonne Breithaupt
At first this photo seemed to have no taste, but after putting it in Photoshop taking the color out of everything excpet the rubix cube & then putting it through Picassa I thought it was one of my best photo's.
BTW I'm only 14.
The process of taking out the colour and then colouring back in selective areas of a photo is called colour popping.
It works well in photos that contain something that is obviously rich in colour - and the Rubik's cube in Yvonne's photo is a great example.
If you want to have a go at this effect yourself there's a Photoshop tutorial on colour popping here.
Thanks for the submission Yvonne,
