Photoshop: Selective Color

So, this week I had the chance to watch the short tutorial on how to change eye color from my Udemy classes. During the whole session, the author focuses on using Selective Color on how to select and manipulate colors on a photo section. As I am not good with explaining stuffs, especially the technical ones, here’s an excerpt from Wikipedia:

Selective color is a post-processing technique where most of a photo is converted to black and white, but some parts are left in color. This is usually achieved by using layers and masks in photo editing software (Photoshop, SilverFast, Adobe Fireworks or The GIMP for example).

You will also probably get better understanding on how to use this function with a photo editor by watching some tutorial videos from Youtube or other online sources.

Ok. So, I immediately applied my new learnings from a photo I got from Google. And here it is:

Dry Eye Modified

Dry Eye Modified – Golden

Dry Eye Modified - Green

Dry Eye Modified – Green

I really like the last image. It’s like there’s a flower inside her eye and the field is so fresh and green. Or, too green? What do you think?
