Your focus is soft on the second two. Widen your aperture and increase your shutter speed to reduce the motion blur.

When doing selective color, you need to use a very fine brush to make sure you are coloring only what you want in color. For example, on the first one because The sky is in color around the kiddo, it looks kinda funny.

Good luck!

I will have to try and figure that out on my camera I am really not that knowledgable about photography and I have been using picnik for editing and they only let you do a circle for alot of things that I know of anyway. I would like to keep things free but is there anyway to fix the color problem on a free site or on picnik.

I only use photoshop so I'm not sure I can help you out much with that. Have you tried gimp? I have heard it is very similar to photoshop so maybe that would make things easier? Most brushes are round, but if you use a small enough diameter, you should be able to get just the parts you want in color. Hope that helps.

with alot of the features you can't use a brush though you have to just use a circle and change the size of that one circle on there
