    How can improve this?

    This was taken a couple of days ago as an experiment photographng clouds looking into the sun. What I would like to do is convert it to B&W with a high contrast and put colour back in the leaves to create a sort of surrealist scene. I have PE8 and have not yet found a way of replacing colour. Help please!

    Brian, is there a chance you can upload the original? I think it is pretty surreal as it sits... But you may be able to get the green back into the leaves with > new layer> set to color> paint in leaves.. The biggest I can see you having is that the leaves are black at the moment and will not accept any color.

    Anything is possible, Brian.

    Duplicate layer select the leaves then delete/erase and fill the selected area with colour etc. But it may be a bit time consuming to look good. Several potential methods.

    However, as Ryo said, it looks good as it is now. Or a full monochrome version.

    Thanks for the comments. The original is here [URL="http://www.flickr.com/photos/casadelpi/8051518186/in/photostream"](I think ) It's the first time I've put anything on flickr. It is totally untouched. When I get a decent B&W version I'll post it.

    Brian, took both your and Geoff's directions, and a bit of artistic license:

    Nice job but I would had made a lighter green on the leaves though. The photo looks like there's another planet in the sky.
