Share an Image Because of its Color
Jan 27, 2013

There is a Black and White Forum but no place specifically for color.  An oversight?  It is sort of assumed that color is an element in most photography but it is often not singled out as important.  In this forum, the discussions usually center around resolution and focus.  Okay, there is sometimes an issue with skin tones.  But, color can dominate an image and is often my favorite aspect.  Here is one of mine to get things rolling:



So Blue

Monochromes are fine but not required.  Just any image you would like to share because of its color(s).  There is no requirement for realism.  Just appeal due to color.  This is shot with a D90 with color brought to you by Adobe (Elements).

Simple side lit. Not part of the commission shoot. Just personal

There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':

Try again!  Did you try to insert it using the third icon from the right?  I upload to my gallery here primarily to avoid such problems but also from my computer.

That is a pretty strong color!  That would have stopped me in my tracks as well.

Sensational!  Pure red can be hard to capture out in the field.

Did you have the camera in VIVID mode and crancked up saturation, or is it just plain blue because you were in CANCUN?
