Many thanks to Steb for letting me use his image in this tutorial. Please Note: this tutorial isn’t a reflection on the content or quality of Steb's work - it is used purely because it makes for a very graphic subject matter in a recolouring exercise.

Remember as well folks, 9 times out of 10 it's virtually impossible to achieve a major satisfactory colour change in one hit. so don't try to. This is where Photoshops's excellent snapshot/history brush functions come in really useful.

I don't see this as a photomanipulation but more of the enhancement. There are a lot of tricks that can be played in the darkroom to do similar things and no one ever calls them photomanipulations. People need to get over the stigma of it being digital and do what is necessary to get a better picture.

Typically, if you do any major change to an image it always helps it retain a natural feel if you use Fade to add back around 15-20% of the original image into the work. This normally tones down anything you have inadvertently done too harshly.

Thanks for the information. I can't wait to try the Fade next time I adjust a picture.
