What kind of technique did you use Jeff!...In order to take the whole colors out but the bug's!...Photoshop software or did you make it in the lab?...Thanks!....

I like how the color brings the bug completely out, and how the whole picture is emphisized by the bug!...Practically says: "Hey I'm the main subject...Look at Me"!...Jos well done!... #8686

I created a new layer and then used the channel mixer and clicked monochrome. Then I just used my eraser on the bug. Sorry it took so long to get back to you about this. #9324
