What fun! Love the first one - the selective desat really works well here.

Nice job! Makes Santa look a little more magical. You inspired me to play around with this 50+ year old B&W.

No one answered my question about how this effect is produced ... here is one link I found. There are likely many others, but this is a start. Any other suggestions?

Sorry I must have looked over your question. Normally a magician doesn't reveal his secrets either lol

What I do is I first postprocess the colored pic just like I would normally. Adjust levels, sharpness, etc.
Then I select the whole frame and press ctrl+C ctrl+V (copy paste).
Then I desaturate that layer and adjust the levels again so it looks good in B&W.

At this stage you should have 2 layers in your photoshop file, 1 colored and above that one in B&W.

All you need to do then is select the eraser tool and erase everything you want in color from the B&W one.


for more examples: check here: http://tdn9.be/photo.php?id=16
and here http://tdn9.be/photo.php?id=19
and here http://tdn9.be/photo.php?id=32

and some more on the site :lol:

This was done using layers as well, it is time consuming getting the edges right but not to difficult.
