        Have your main layer as your background, then duplicate that layer, then

        Hold down 'Shift', 'Control' and 'U', this will make the duplicated layer mono, you could poss adjust the contrast/brightness if needed, then using either the Pen tool or the Polygonal Lasso Tool, trace around the car, and then press delete or erase the car, you will then start to see the under layer come through in colour, job done

            Cool pic, except that you forgot to mono colour the view through the windscreen

                      No, its that trick that people do when the have thier car just posing normally but the bonnet is transparent so it shows the engine but u can still see a bit of the body...it's not like they've just got the rubber tool on it

                        Not to sure what you mean, if i think i'm right in what your saying then yes, you do just use the eraser on the bonnet.

                        Copy your bonnet, the old bonnet darken, the new bonnet skew and angle to an open position, get an engine from the net, place it in the picture between your new bonnet and old, then erase the part thar you shouldnt see.

                        Yes there is a bit more work involved, but thats the basses of it

                          If I`m understanding you correctly, it`s very easy.

                          Park the car, take first pic. Then lift the bonnet up, take second pic.

                          Load both pics into PS, with the one without the bonnet up layered above the other, stick a layer-mask onto this layer, then just paint out the parts of the bonnet that will show up the engine parts that you want to expose from below.

                          The secret is to use a tripod when you take the pics, so that both pics are taken from exactly the same height, angle, etc......In that way both pics are identical.

                            I thought she ment just a random pic from the net, but yes, that would work, why you would want to do that i don't know, if you want a pic of the car with its bonnet up then just take it with the bonnet up lol
