Default Selective Color -- Bar J Ranch

This is the entry gate for the Bar J Ranch in Jackson, Wyoming. The Bar J serves a huge chuckwagon dinner to 750 people every night during the summer months. After the meal, an outstanding "Cowboy Music" program is presented by the Bar J Wranglers.

The Bar J is a working cattle ranch and the musicians are ranch hands. You'd never know it to hear them.

I used Bynx's method with layers to produce this image.

That entranceway sure does 'pop'. Ive noticed some of the pics entered in this challenge by people look like B&W that have been hand colored.

I wasnt referring to your pic if you thought so Cal. I mean to say that when you remove all the colors but one or 2 it looks more like a B&W that is hand colored. Its just the effect. My favorite entry way to a ranch was the Double R Bar Ranch.

Thanks everyone. It was as much fun making this image as it was visiting the ranch.
