Example 3 - Highlight New York's Brooklyn Bridge

Turn a New York icon into a stunning partial color photograph with black & white and color masks that bring focus to the beautiful structure of the Brooklyn Bridge.

The Brooklyn Bridge


Lines: 

  • Bridge - Color Mask
  • Bridge outline - Black and White Mask

Tips: 

  • Small items are not noticeable in a final image, so when masking the bridge ignore small details like the color of the cables spanning the bridge. For this image, we just allowed them to be black and white like the surrounding background. 
  • Use small lines to define edges, where the bridge matches the color of the buildings in the background, these are most prone to bleeding.
