    Issues with selection and fill


      I am having trouble with filling a selection. So, I selected an area using the elliptical marquee tool. Then I went to fill the selection with black. Instead of filling the selection with black, it filled the opposite - the whole screen minus the selection. Then I hit CTLR-I to invert the selection. That turned the screen white.
      What I was expecting is to see the photo with the selected area black.
      What am I doing wrong? Screen shots below.
