Hello Dustin,

The flower was white with yellow in the center, do you think you could explain to me how to add color in PS I never did that yet.

Thanks, Kevin

Great idea and greatjob pulling it off.Works perfect with this shot. As for adding the color, open the original image, create a new layer and convert it to B&W however you did this one. Then all you have to do is take the eraser tool in PS and erase the B&W parts you want color to reveal the color layer bolow the B&W top layer, you can then flatten it if you want to have it all on one layer. There are other ways of doing this, such as layer masks, but my version of PS elements don't have 'em so I have to work around it. But I like it how it is. Also, make that copyright white so it don't detract as much with that splash of red.
