Hi Stu,
     I do that with a tier of power windows on the 2k.  Make a neutral 
correction, then open the next tier and paint the scene blue in a window 
that is expanded to fill the whole frame.  Then go to the next tier, 
open another full screen PW, select cascade, and qualify it for flesh tones.
    There are several other ways as well, I'm sure!
