Challenge has finished
A hundred years ago, to create a color photograph required painting a black and white print by hand. At the turn of the century, a few practitioners still remained, carrying out their arcane art in a world overrun with color film. While hand coloring prints is practically a lost art today, you can achieve a similar effect digitally ... without having to resort to special filters and plug-ins. With a B&W image in your editing software, create one or more transparent layers. Apply selective color on the layer. Adjust the layer blends to achieve the desired look. Submit your best "hand colored" image. Refer to the sample image and check out the additional rules.

Dorothy "Dottie" Schroeder was the youngest girl at age 15 to play in the All American Girls Professional baseball League, and was the only girl to play in the league for all of the twelve seasons that it existed(1943-1954). Ironically, although she is pictured as a catcher in this photograph,she was really a top flight shortstop for the duration of her career. This league was remembered and memorialized in the 1992 film-A League Of Their Own.

|Notes:||No camera data was listed in the exif file, and no credit is attributed to any photographer. I found the photo on the Flickers commons site.There are no known copyright restrictions. The original B&W photo can be found in the State Library and Archives of Florida. I colorized the B&W photo by selecting different elements in the photograph, and then colored the individual selections using the selective color,hue/sat and color balance image adjustment features in Photoshop.|
