Wow, he is well and truly green! lol!

Umm, I would try and shoot something like that with as shallow depth of field as possible to blur out the background, that way, the fact it's green on green won't matter too much as there would be no detail to distract from the subject.

That's the only thing I can think of personally, I'm sure other's can come up with a few suggestions though.

good point, jc.
think i'd probably crop it down as much as i could. open in PS, use the quick mask to select just the background and maybe change the color of the BG a tad.

interesting.. i'll give it a quick try. give me 5

At least I know I ain't blind to have seen that one - lol.

Alison, I mean in way of processing not whilst shooting.

Roy, thanks. Actually not dumb at all - kinda sticks out don't it.

During WWII the military found that the best anti snipers were color blind, such that camouflage did not work. Both my sons are color blind to varying degrees, and yes, things that are camouflaged to us, who have normal eyesight, stick out like a sore thumb to them.

i'm anti-quick mask.. quick mask is evil.

i copied the original layer, [real]masked out the bug. so the top layer was simply everything other than the bugs body (i included the wings and legs in the top layer since they are transparent/black).

for the top layer (everything excluding the bug), i changed its Hue/Saturation. changing the hue to a more yellow/brown and desaturating it a little bit.

for the bottom layer (includes everything, but only the bug's body shows through the top layer), i increased its saturation so it glows a brighter green.
