Default Looking for suggestions

This past weekend was the Washington State Special Olympics, and while I was up in our bucket truck taking pictures of our setup, I snapped this one one our way back down.

Warning it is 2560x1920 and 1.5 MB in size. It is straight out of the camera (Nikon 5000).

I am a complete newbie to Photoshop, but I am learning quickly. I can get the grass and the truck back to their natural colors, but the traffic cones and the one hard hat are giving me problems. Can some one give me some pointers?

To desaturate elements you have to use the "sponge tool" from the toolpalette. This is far the easiest way to do this.

Try that - it's easy.

The cones seem to have an orange halo around them as well. I don't know what causes that, but it doesn't looks "right".

Given that I was shooting for quantity rather than quality I am happy with what I am able to come up with.



Thanks for the help. This stuff is different (but easier) than the back and white darkroom I used in school.[/url]
