  2. I remember on my point and shoot Canon. If I recall you actually indicated which color you wanted emphasized. On the NEX it has four preset colors; Red, yellow, green, and blue.

    Cool - it's kind of like the Silver Efex selective color option - at least to the viewer. I have no idea how it works in camera!

    Thanks BB, in camera you just select which color you want to keep and it does away with the rest for you. You get to select the range of tones, for example deep dark blues to lighter more sky blues, that you want to keep too. Its not perfect though, and you have to find a good subject I guess, otherwise you get some colour elsewhere, like a little bit behind the boat. In that case I use the desaturating brush in LR to tidy up :)

  7. Looks like it turned out very well. Really like the red signs, not so sure about the blue boat.

    Not quite sure Jimmy, the K5's got the feature in camera, but I don't know abt the olympus cameras, if you have Light Room 3 you could also do this by desaturating the colours you don't want and use a brush set to desaturate.

    Thanks Dave, I agree, the sign display was just right for it. I guess I don't like the boat that much too, think I shd have taken a better angle/perspective on it when i took the photo, and probably higher contrast in my pp.

    Not sure if these two work as well as the red signs one, but I wanted to emphasize the performers. maybe the first one is better:

    Hmmm this needs more space to the right, and to lose the coffee stirrer, and then to have some kind of text advertising starbucks on it lol
