Your pictures are definitely about the colours Ken. They say opposites attract and in your first image I think the green is attracted to the red? The second is a similar idea to Ians’ red idea. Thanks for posting these. I need to post something soon.May 6, 2017 at 4:49 pm #14157
It’s a mixed bag from me. Some old and some new. I’m not sure what to make of them myself, but feel the colours are an important element. what do you thing about the last one? Is it a hit or a bit of a miss match?May 7, 2017 at 12:11 am #14159May 7, 2017 at 12:18 am #14160
All very interesting and pleasing Peter. Second look at your last one and while it is said–“Blue and Green” should never be seen–I find the grassy bank sharp against the OOF blue stream or pond is my favourite of these. This one at Holmes Chapel I took more for the image but as long as I waited–nobody came along dressed in the right colours or headed the best way. Think this has a yellow hue so will look at that.May 7, 2017 at 12:21 am #14161May 7, 2017 at 12:22 am #14162

Thanks Ken and Ian for posting these images. you’ve both been very busy.
I think a couple of Ken’s photos and one of Ians’ are dominated by red again. It shows what a powerful and dominating colour it is and needs to be controlled!
I like the pattern of blues and dirty oranges in Ken’s photo of the green bottle. I think I would have placed the bottle higher in the frame. The guys in the red and yellow rugby shirts stand out dramatically against the other muted colours in the picture.
In Ian’s first picture, the strength is in the strong eye contact. The colours are simple and don’t overwhelm it for me. The face and hair are the warmest part of the picture and come forward emphasizing the eyes. The lady in the red shirt just speaks for her self. She’s clearly dominate and is so strong. In the next photo of the lady in black, I think it’s almost monochrome in the sense that there are no saturated or dominate colours. The warmest part of the photo is the ladies skin tone. Are the colours important to the photograph? I think it would work as well in black and white.
The last photo has muted cool tones so the lady’s red hair is a magnet for the eye. It jumps out of the picture and being circular is more powerful.

For Peter ( 😉 )…
I think the yellow/gold of the girl’s skin and hair stand out better against the complementary blues in the background. The warm skin and hair tones of the girl and the warm tones of the shop lighting and clothing on the dummy help to pull the the picture together; and the similar ‘integrating’ effects of the blacks is stronger when they contrast with muted colours rather than greys. What do you think?
