do you mean, how did the photographer make the entire picture in b/w, except for the hot metal?
She most likely did this in a photoshop-type program and was able to select a color (or range of colors) in the photo to exclude. Then she can make the rest of it b/w. You see the resulting affect.

well, i do believe that in some cameras, there is a setting where you can choose a color or range of colors. That color will remain and everything else will be in b/w. Essentially saving some editing after.

But as far as choosing a "subject" (object) to still be in color, that must be done manually in photoshop...

There are no stupid questions. Everyone is a newbie at one point. If you plan on sticking around, you should introduce yourself in the Welcome! Introduce yourself here forum.

I've never used anything, or heard of, excluding a range of colors

When I try to achieve anything like this, in CS, I do the following, and maybe apply a filter or 2 for your own taste:

- Duplicate layer
- Go to 'Edit' -> Fill. Choose 50% Gray and apply.
- Change the opacity to your desires
- Use any tool and erase bits of the duplicated gray layer, to pop things out

If anyone can tell me the color-range trick in CS, I'd love to hear it

hmm, i guess i was mistaken about my instructions. I actually dont have photoshop.. i use some other editing software, and i am able to choose a range of colors to exlcude, and then make everything else b&w.

Sagelight. At the time that i bought it, they were having a promotional and it only cost me $1. Now, i believe it is $39.99 (it was $59 last month).

I really like this software, and i have gotten really used to it. Sadly i just bought a mac, and it doesn't work on that computer.
