Happy ST! This is my next door neighbor's (on the other side) mailbox. I used selective color setting on my camera. Living on the river, people are fascinated by boats and motors.
I value your comments.

Colour Enhancement is a great effect. Outboard reuse mailbox has never crossed my mind Now I've seen it. Am3 is a wonderful thing.

OMG!! What an ingenious creation with this boat motor!! They must be the envy of the neighborhood! Excellent selective coloring achieved here! Now it's got me thinking how to make a "camera mailbox." Maybe have the "zoom lens" be the mailbox while the camera body is attached to that? :-)
