Complementary Colors

Challenge #4 in the Get Creative series. Hosted by gordonpritchard.
Challenge has finished
Complementary colors are pairs of colors which, when combined or mixed, cancel each other out (lose hue) and produce a grey. Complementary colors may also be called "opposite colors". When placed next to each other, in an image, they create the strongest contrast for those two colors. Because of that, the use of complementary color lighting is very popular in dramatic sci-fi movies. Your challenge is to present us with a photo where complementary colors are the main focus. It could be the use of complementary lighting (e.g. red and green lights) or where the subject itself is made of complementary colors (e.g. a red and a green apple). This link has a tool to help you choose complementary colors: https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_complementary.asp
