    Looking at your second picture Ken, it looks like you’ve seen the video Ian posted. The blue cast in the picture sets a restful atmosphere while the red car injects some energy.

    These are a few photos from my archives that for me illustrate the power of red in a photograph. In the photograph below of the lady red is dominate and over powering. Especially against the green background.


    In the picture below the red catches the eye first again but I think the composition gives it more dominance.

    In this photo the flowers form a dotted red diagonal against a neutral background. Simple but effective?

    When I took this photo I initially wanted to capture the stressed expressions of the cyclists, but he just smiled at me! However, I like the pattern they form and the part the shadows play. His red shirt help create depth as it jumps to the front while the cooler tones recede. What do you think?

    All very pleasing Peter. Yes red on green always works. Love  the old fashioned geranium  picture,, not to nit pick but think it worthy of little straighten up–but then I know you like to angle shots.The brollies always a good subject—the cyclist and shadow great.

    Many thanks for your comments Ken. I agree that geranium  picture needs straightening.

    One more fling before the months end. The plan was to create a colour wheel using W10–Paint—quarter of the way. Probably need a few more pixels.

    I like the idea Ken and your imaginative skills. Thanks for your contributions to this months theme.

    I’ll also have a last fling with this month’s theme before it waves bye bye.

    Well Peter that is one beautiful set of photo”s. With due respect to everyone—for me they take the biscuit for May. Certainly amazing colours–but there is such a happiness about them. Lady with swans, looks like the Lake District? Superb “brolley ” shot and the colours in the final one are just magic, and of course –master of the angle shots. You so enjoy your photography Peter and give us all pleasure.

    Many thanks Ken. You flatter me. I just enjoy my photography like you say and if others enjoy it too that’s just a bonus.

    It’s great when you can get a good photo of people enjoying themselves. I love to watch Japanese tourists. They seem to enjoy life so much. You’re correct when you say the photo of the lady with the swan is in the Lakes. Her colourful clothes and character stood out in a peaceful scene. It just begged to be photographed. Thank you.
