Cornwall is a bright and cheerful place on a sunny day, and even in bad weather, the bright splashes of colour that are scattered all over the place are enough to lift the mood a little bit. And grey days are when the little pops of colour need to be appreciated even more.
(It was such a grey day in Newquay that this guys jumper stood out so much)
I thought that finding a way to add colour to my pictures was going to be hard, and when I looked up how to use selective colouring in GIMP, I thought "I am never going to be able to get this" but after ploughing through a confusing tutorial (it was the best one I could find!) I did it, and now I realise how easy it is when you know how!
And I have to admit that selective colouring is such a cool technique I am having to restrain myself from doing it to every single photo that I have! GIMP gives you the option to colour whatever you like and it's really easy to do.
(I'm still learning the finer points of it, but I think am slowly getting there!)
