Colour splash Effect in Photoshop CC

I had the idea for an image that was nagging me, so on Saturday while it was lovely and sunny i dragged Chris out to Willaston to go and photograph the old train station. I ended up with 70 odd images hoping one would be ‘the one’. Today, after i pried my laptop from my daughters pre-teen fingers, i decided to tackle my idea. Then realised i didn’t have any idea how to go about it. I visited my favorite ‘how to’ blog (thanks Russel Ray) but couldn’t find what i wanted there so ventured onto youtube and found it first time! flyingicestudios. So after a try or three i finally managed to figure it out and after three hours managed to come up with this image.

This is how it started life.

Which one do you favour? I like both but am particularly please with the black and white one and with myself for achieving it!

  1. I´d go for the colour one. Although if you´d made the sky more dramatic in the B/W it might have tipped the ballance for me!

  2. I agree with Charles – sort of :-)… I like the B/W one, but it would be a lot better if you worked on your tonal quality – a bit drab for a B&W.


  3. I agree that I favor the colored one. Looking at the colored one, my focus is completely drawn in by way of the r.r. tracks, taking me on a “journey” passing the wonderful phone booth and building. Observing the B&W, the only thing I see is the phone book and sign, losing the “story” if meant to be told. I do love Black and Whites though!
