Awesome shot! How do you do that in Photoshop?

Thanks, everyone, for your feedback! I always appreciate it!

Saul: To spot color in Photoshop, I just created a hue/saturation adjustment layer. I then adjusted the hue and saturation all the way to the left to make the layer black and white. Then, working with your adjustment layer, choose black as your foreground color, choose a brush with smooth edges, and begin to go brush over the area where you want the original color from the background layer to show through. If you uncover too much, change your foreground color to white and brush the area you want to return to black and white. Black reveals the color, white takes it away.
Tinting is a different process, so you would only use this spot color process if you want to reveal spots of the original color.
Let me know if I didn't explain any part of that well enough. Thanks again for the feedback!

This is absolutely darling, Wendy! Well done on the selective coloring and your model is adorable! And of course, being a fan of hats for portraits, the straw hat is a great added touch!
