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.

Taken during Canadian Remembrance Day services in 2008 near Canada's largest Air Force Base. I wanted to create a black and white photo of this scene but since the red poppy is prominent on this day I also wanted them and that colour to stand out. This is my first entry into a challenge in this group and I certainly hope I've understood and followed the guidelines properly.
