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.

This is a photo my professor gave us during a Photoshop class I took a while back to learn how to colorize old B&W photos. I can not take credit for actually taking the photo, but I did do all the coloring work. The photo was actually taken from an on-line stock photo service the professor subscribed to.
