Just a Dash of Color

In a previous post we had a look at some decorative farm implements that grabbed my attention just about each time I drove past this property. In this post a rural backyard gets a dash of color in this black & white image. This was processed as a 3-bracket HDR then converted in Topaz Lab's B&W Effects, where I applied the Warm Tone II Smooth filter in the Traditional Collection section. I then pulled the B&W and HDR into PS for a dash of selective color.

By the way, Topaz B&W Effects remains on sale until 9/18/11 with $30 off. Simply enter the code bwandbeyond at checkout for the instant discount.
