Re: how help with changing dry grass color to gree

HelloPiccadilly, a simple Hue/Sat adjustment layer will work fine. Just select the yellow channel, narrow the range by adjusting the rainbow sliders and adjust the Hue. Parts of the car will be affected so when you are finished just invert the layer mask which is already on the Hue/Sat adj layer nad paint across the grass with a white brush. Also don't forget to brush over the wheel cover or the reflection of the grass won't match.
Regards, Murray

I have added a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. Popped up the menu and selected yellows, then used the eye dropper to select a light section of the grass. Used the hue slider to adjust toward more green. I then masked out the car fender to remove the correction from the adjustment.

Or, you can use the selective color tool and then mask the car color back in.
