Color Splash Sunday - My Left Eye


Color splash photos are those that have been converted to black and white, but one object has been left colored. Sometimes, it's easy to just isolate your colored object and you're done. Other times, more editing is required, such as adjusting color levels/light/shadow/etc.

Before I get to this week's theme, I am so happy to say that I picked a winner last week! We had 6 entries for the Animal theme, which is my minimum for picking a winner. I have to admit, it was tough. In the end, I chose Lisa from White Cotton Tee because I just loved her selective color photos of the calf and his papa!

Congrats, Lisa!

On to this week! The theme was eyes, courtesy of Marlis, who faithfully enters a photo every Sunday. I actually took this photo yesterday in the car and rushed to process it so I could post it today. It's not a great photo, that's certain, but my eyes were especially green, due to the green shirt I was wearing.

(If you don't celebrate the holiday, use something autumn-y instead.)

Before you link up, please read this page very carefully, and look at my examples of color splash photos to see if your photo uses selective coloring.

Thank you so much for selecting my "little guy" photo from last week!! It was such a surprise when I came here and saw that.
