As an artist, the easiest way to convey contrast is to use color. In color theory we describe two colors that have absolute chromatic contrast as complementary because when used with additive or subtractive light mixing, they complete the color spectrum and produce an achromatic result. You may know these simply as opposite colors. Green, for example, is often said to be the opposite of red. Your challenge is to produce a photography that uses very strong complementary colors. Aside from that requirement, the photograph must simply be aesthetically pleasing. Tips: Computers use an additive light system based on Red, Blue and Green light. Opposites go like this: Red -> Cyan Blue -> Yellow Green - Magenta Violet is just a Bluish Magenta. Orange is just Yellowish Red. You may also use a more traditional set of colors: Blue -> Orange Red -> Green Yellow -> Violet Do some research and experiment with color!

It's really nice to breathe in photography again. As I have browsed this site again, this challenge caught my interest and suddenly remembered one of my favorite photos way back when I was still exploring my talent in photography... It's happy to know that old photos give you a sense of pride, especially when you get recognized because of them. Took this one while lying on the floor, and I am glad with the outcome.
