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.

Added two fill layers, one pink and one green. Simply erased off the color I didn't need... Pink: opacity 41%, hard light blend. Green: opacity 14%, vivid light blend. When erasing that bush in the background, I used an eraser with less opacity, so a hint of the green shade still remains. More seemed to be too much.
