That tacky part-colour effect…

I read a little while ago that converting an image to black-and-white but leaving just a detail in colour is the epitome of tackiness these days… In a sense, I agree – to the extent that no effect retains its singularity in the long run, but as with all effects it might still have its use if the context is right. As long as one uses it for a purpose, and not just for the sake of the effect in itself.

Well, you can judge for yourselves – I thought it had a certain (ok, fairly traditional) justification here…:)

As always – please click images for full appreciation!

And as always – thanks to Eric for posing so sweetly! 😉
