For this composite I purchased a brand new hose and played with the placing of it on black river rocks. I thought that the green over the river rock crated a wonderful contrast. After several attempts with the placing of the hose, I finally got it right and took the shot. Later in Photoshop I made the rocks and hose spout black and white while keeping the green part of the hose in color. Also I played with the vibrancy and saturation of the color of green along with adjustments to the contrast of the river rocks.
