Tones on Tuesday #4 10.11.11

Last week Liz from The Greatest of These is LOVE linked up this photo:
I LOVE the selective coloring and how draws you into the photo. The bee and the flower pop. Wonderful job and thank you for sharing Liz!

Now it's your turn. Here is the guidelines for Tones on Tuesday:
  • The basic idea is to share one photo where you have altered the tones. Such as a black and white photo or a sepia toned photo. Feel free to share the original and edit, or just the edit.
  • Please share a photo that you have taken and edited yourself.
  • If you have more than one photo in your post please indicate which one if for Tones on Tuesday.
  • Please link up with your permalink and not your blog address.
  • Attach the Tones on Tuesday button to your post
  • Leave comments for the other participants, share the love :o)!
  • I will pick a few photos that catch my eye to share on next week's post.
  • Have fun!

Here is my photo this week. This was taken during the Clickin Walk this weekend. My goal was to capture the beautiful color of the flowers. With the edit, I was inspired by Liz to try some more selective coloring. I used the adjustment brush in Lightroom. My tip this week is a tutorial I shared last month about how I learned to use the adjustment brush to selective color. You can find it here. I also had help from a video Melissa made for me :o). What do you think?

  1. I love it! I've never used Lightroom for selective coloring, always Photoshop. I'm gonna go check out your tutorial on how to do it! Great tip! Thanks for linking up!

  2. I haven't ever tried selective coloring , but it gives a very eye-catcing look to a piece! Pretty. I'll have to try it:) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. So beautiful flowers there are, specially, I love that violet flower, I don't know it's english name, but it's my favour and finnish it is called verenpisara.
