Black and white and red

It’s Labor Day, and I’ve got a bit of a stomach malady. Nothing serious, but barbecuing isn’t going to happen here at the homestead. Neither do I feel motivated to pull out the camera. So I decided to pull up an older shot and do some Photoshop play. The image was first converted to black and white using the Nik Silver Efex Pro (version 1) plugin, then I selected all the reds from the original image layer, copied and pasted them them into their own layer. I merged the reds with the black and white layer, did a little fine tuning, et voilà:
