Selective colouring

I have been seeing alot of selective colouring on images recently and thought I'd give it a try with an image I thought would handle it well. It turns out the actual process is very simple but getting the resultant image to look good is very difficult. I think it's more down to the original image than the skills of the convertor.

Have a look at the original:

And the amended version:

For me the resultant image just doesn't look right, it has a blue cast which I need to correct and needs a better grayscale conversion technique and a little more punch. Gives you the idea though and wasted an hour one night when I had nothing else to do :)
