Just experimenting with selective colour............tell me what you think folks.

I like the red, but for me the trees are so gray... so I am missing the colors.

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Wow Nige, superb action shot and terrific use of selective colour. Was this with the new lens ?

26 Jan 2012 8:59am

@Doug: Yes it was Doug - but the shot is not as sharp as I would have liked it to be - as my school report always said ....'could do better'.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Looks just great Nigel, caught the jump perfectly and the red jacket gives the shot all the "punch" that it needs.

Jules from Drayton, United Kingdom

cracking action shot - the selective colour for me, gives the illusion that the horse and rider were added on a separate layer to create this image.
