B&W Selective Coloring?

*** Explore #364 ***

 

Well I've been experimenting in photoshop while working on this s2k set and this is what I came up with for this shot. I know I know the post processing should be consistent from one shot to the next in a set, but I've been having fun experimenting with different techniques. I'll probably go back and re-edit the set so the post processing is more consistent from one shot to the next but for now I'm happy.

 

Laid a gradient map over the background and masked off the cars for a selective coloring style shot. Maybe I'm crazy but I actually thought it looked better this way then just applying the gradient map to the entire shot.

 

Let me know what you guys think!
