When I was working on Stories at the Princeville Pier (the previous post), I couldn’t get my mind off of the little green bucket.
The original color image was simply washed out as I was deliberately shooting into the sun to be able to work with silhouettes in the final image.
I was fine with that.
But the little green bucket was calling me.
I had to do something with that little green bucket…
So, it was back to the digital darkroom.
This time, I opened the image in ACDsee Pro 8 and did something I’ve never done before.
I’d read about it many times, but this was the Frog’s first time removing color from an image.
Using the Advanced Color Feature, I removed all of the color from the image except the greens.
The only evident color in this image is the little green bucket.
Yes, there’s a little left in the water.
But your eye is drawn to the little green bucket.
Depending on how you’re viewing this post, you might be doubting me right now. If you’re doubting me, click here.
Both images – Little Green Bucket and Stories – are in the coastal and beach scenes gallery on Laughing Frog Images.
