Awesome picture! The red is outstanding, and it is really nice how sharp the picture is!
I might be asking a stupid question here, but please forgive me - I am an amateur at photo editing. Still, could you explain how you made the picture with only these two colors? I mean, how did you make the background the same color, while making the red stand out in this contrast? Thank you
There are two layers - one for the background, the other with the bug! I separated the bug by making a copy of the whole photograph and erasing everything on this second layer but the bug. Then I made some edits on the bug (saturation, sharpening etc.) and finally I toned the complete background with this brown tone. I hope You will understand and I could help a bit - my English ain´t that good
