It was very straightforward. In Photoshop I duplicated the colour layer and converted it to mono. I then used a layer mask to erase the black and white section where the figure is to reveal the colour underneath. I used a large brush for most of the area, then reduced its size for the edges. Since the lower half of the figure is against the white snow, I found that I did not have to be that accurate and it only took a couple of minutes.
Very effective Mike, I like it
Yes, it's a tehnique that doesn't always work - it can be overused in my opinion - but it definitely adds something here.

I do agree about overuse, Rose, which is why I have never done it before. I was fortunate that my wife was wearing such bright clothing with the colours of her socks and boots complementing the red jacket.
That was very considerate of her
