I had always wanted to do a shot that isolated a color and had the rest of thne shot be in black and white. I wasn't quite sure if this was legal under the current basic rules. After much thought of the rules, especially the line "as long as it is applied to the whole image." I found that hue and saturation does just this. I was able to isolate the triangles because they were originally green and they were completely different from the back ground (meaning it contained no green at all). I unsaturated every color but green which made everything black and white but the triangles. After that, I simply changed the hue of green to orange. I then did auto-levels and re-sized for the web.

How was this done within legal "basic" editing? Nice concept though. Good luck :) 8!

This is strange, and it is difficult to gauge the scale. But it is a good picture.

I like the shot and gave it a 6 however... it looks like it has run afoul of the rules of basic editing.
