For the last couple of hours I have been playing around with Photoshop as part of my college homework. I have been experimenting with removing colour, taking out text and making colours more vibrant and punchy.

This first image was one I took while on holiday in Iceland. I wanted to highlight the graffiti so I changed the hue and saturation to make the bold colours stand out more and then used a new layer to allow me to make the rest of the image black and white.

In this photograph I did the same as the above image.

In the photograph below I used the clone stamp tool to remove a watermark and changed the image to black and white.

Not too shabby for a beginner I think. If you have any tips or tricks you may have for using photoshop please feel free to pop them in the comments.
