    What software do you use for postprocessing?

    There are several ways to do this, but here's mine (works in PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro and GiMP):
    1) Duplicate the backgroundlayer
    2) Convert the duplicated layer to B/W
    3) Add a mask on the new layer
    4) Paint (on the later mask!) everything black that you want to return to color and paint everything you want in B/W white (or vice versa, I never remember which is which)
    5) Flatten your image
    Voila!
    Ciao, Joost

    All feedback is highly appreciated!

    another way, in photoshop, convert image to black and white, then simply paint the colour back in with the histroy brush.

    As above, its called selective colour layering, or layer masking.

    Do some googles, there are lots of ways to do this, and probably some dedicated piece of software also.

    It can be very fun to do, the trick is to take your time with the selecting.

    Another trick is to open the RAW in PS or LR and zero the saturation of every colour but the colour you want, then increase that colour, then do the same again and leave as normal so you have two pics that are exactly the same.

    Open them, copy one to the other, do the selection and wala, that way you can be less perfect with the selection.

    Good luck.

    if you have a faster servicing ADSL or even better broadband - sometimes (depending on subject) you may find a video tutorial in YouTube search under photoshop tutorials in You tube....
