That’s certainly a colourful portrait Wallace. The red hair really stands out against the cool background.
I think your blue themed photo is an interesting pattern picture Ian. The shadows give it some depth and I find myself going in circles!
Yes, Wallace, the blinds really were blue – the local library is being refurbished, and these had been taken out and dumped. The blinds were pretty much that colour – there’s no added saturation and no changes to hue or luminosity; but I added a touch (not much) to the vibrance, and I increased the contrast slightly, which always seems to intensify colours somewhat.
I took this simple photograph at Tutbury on Sunday of the lady in red. It clearly shows how powerful the hue of red is.It would be lost in black and white, but it may look better in black and white because the red wouldn’t dominate the photograph.
I took a couple of snaps this morning in my garden with this month’s theme in mind. Two completely different pictures with plenty of room for experimentation and refinement. These certainly would work the same way on black and white.
Yes, blue car with red lights, blue shop with red/pink bits, all on the diagonal with the girls (in their somewhat surreal sunglasses and winter-sports kit on a Spring afternoon in Sandbach High Street!).
