Creative challenge 002: Times Square and Hue/Saturation adjustment layers

OK... Let's try something different on this one.

Using Hue/Saturation adjustment layers ONLY (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation), see what you can do to this one.

Possibilities:
* An all color creation
* All grayscale (move Saturation sider to the far left; experiment with Lightness)
* Mixed color, grayscale

Hints:
* Add a H/S AL
* Experiment with the sliders, dropdown menu and/or colorize option, then OK
* Ctrl + I to invert the mask (the thumbnail will turn black)
* Press D and X keys to get white as the foreground color
* Paint white on the H/S AL to reveal the effect

Groundrules:
* Use as many H/S adjustment layers as you like.
* If you need to sharpen or blur the base Background, that's OK.

Danny,
First a little question..when you say "Add a H/S AL" is that a mask?

H/S AL = Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer. Sorry about that.

Layer sets = OK

Don't even ask how much fun this was to do. Danny, you ought to be ashamed. Now I'm going to be up all night playing. Shame, shame.

Giggling uncontrollably,

Janet
