adding color

Adding colour to an area of a monochrome image.
Always shoot in colour, and then you can create monochrome images by a variety of methods in Photoshop depending on what version you have.
CREATE A BACKGOUND LAYER COPY,
The easiest is to de-saturate a copy of your background layer.
If you have a version with the black and white adjustment layer in it you can use that and pick the setting that simulates a colour filter you might use for b & w photography, then merge that layer with your background layer copy.
You can also use the Hue and Saturation adjustment layer to create a monochrome layer in the same way.
I’d adjust the contrast and brightness of the monochrome layer with curves next.
Once you have a satisfactory monochrome layer, mask the area you want the original colour to show and it will appear in the monochrome image from the original background layer.
If you want to add an artificial colour to part of the monochrome layer, select the area you want colour in and make a gradient map layer set on colour blend, then pick the appropriate colour for your image. Don’t be scared to experiment with the gradient map layer, I’ve come across fantastic results I would never have thought of by accident.

Critical Analysis - PLEASE HELP!

You need to access material that has already been produced on Critical Analysis. There are certain standards and ways of looking. Any academic works in the History of Art or the Theory of Art sections of your local library would have credible theses on the subject.
If you have a university in your town/city, visit their art departments. They will have a dedicated library on Critical Analysis. Photography is a discipline in Fine Art and the standards of judgement and analysis apply equally.
Also read up on what the greats had to say about photographic works.
You need to structure your research and that means listing your potential sources and reading, reading, reading. Another bit of advice is that academic works that contain what you need will have a section in the back where the author's sources are listed. The biographical data is a huge source to start with. The first book you find will have many more references, so work systematically, you'll get there. Your sources with increase exponentially with each new reference.
Sorry, that's the way to go about it. Short-cuts to knowledge are few and far between!
