Nice comp Jono - interesting use of B&W but it leaves me wondering if something has been lost in the process - the relection is however very nice ~ John

Jono...did a little playing...hope this helps:

I did an adjustments layer with shadows/highlights, and then selected the color in the bills and inverted it to encompass the entire image, and used an adjustment layer--color/saturation and took out some of the red and yellows.

Terri, I like it. But you may need to say that again a little slower. Especially the bit about the bills.

Many thanks

Sorry...Stuart is the master of explaning what he's done. I'll try to be more clear.

1) Layer -> New Adjustment Layer -> shadows/highlights...and I played with the levels until I liked the affect.

2) I took the magic wand and selected the orange/reds in the bills (while using the wand, if you hold down the shift key you can get exactly what you want), after the wand selected everything I wanted, I right-clicked my mouse and you will find "select inverse"...it's just an easy way to select everything other than the bills.

3) I went to Layer -> New Adjustment Layer -> color/saturation and pulled out the reds/yellows (where it says Edit: Master and there is a pull down...go to the red and then move the saturation tab to the left. Do the same with the yellow.) Play with it until you like the results.

I hope this is better...

BY THE WAY, I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THE DANCING SMILEY CAME FROM...IT SHOWS UP EVERYTIME I PUT THE TWO LETTERS S-I-N-G TOGETHER!!!

Good shot of two floating question marks, Jono... :)

Nicely done, Terri - I think that really brought the image to life, and gave it a huge boost of impact - the black and white is good, but the colour in the bills, and in the water at the back gives it that extra feel...

Cheers,
Stuart
