It's been awhile since last posting so I thought I should post a couple. I was covering the National Swimming event for my club and decided to jazz up a couple photos. I selected the subject I wanted color then inversed and used b/w on both, adding noise in one.

20d, 70 - 200 2.8, non IS

Really like the second shot. The selective color works great because the subject is isolated by composition and DOF anyway.

I agree the 2nd one is cool. The first doesn't work as well for me as the image itself was not as strong to start with.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I'm not sure what for, but I could see the 2nd one being used for some sort of advert.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Nice work!

I agree, image #2 is excellent, Looks like an ad photo and is very well done.

The effect is very cool!

However, it could get tiresome if you used this effect too often.

However, I commend your artistic and technical ability!
