False Color for Friday 2-12-2010
I spent a little time reworking an image I liked with false colors in part to see what would happen. This time around I experimented with the idea of contrasting colors. In this case I used deep purpley-blues to make the bright yellow flower "pop" better. It worked.
To get here I took a RAW file and opened it with CS2. I used highlighted the background and used the replace color option choosing the purpley-blues to be substituted in for the natural muted gray/green of the plants leaves. I then used virtual photographer to emulate an older Kodak Ektachromes contrast and color depth, manipulating contrast further to get to this image.
