***** Challenge No.88: COLORS*****

Sorry folks for delay in starting the challenge, here it goes!

Challenge: COLORS

Deadline: Friday, October 16th, late evening (I'll close it when I open thread Saturday morning. I'm 4hrs behind Greenwich, 1hr ahead of NY).

As many of you know, I've worked mostly with b&w, and struggled to deal with colors. Recently I started to do mostly colors, not as successfully as I wished. Many here are outstanding color photographers. I want to see that: images where colors are essential to results.

As I alwyas do when running a challenge, I'll state my evaluation priorities: impact, choice of adequate subject/scene (in this case, its colors and how they help to produce the image's impact). Then technique and finish. Of course all these are related, and I have a final overall evaluation, usually useful for breaking ties and ordering finalists .

One point: I'd like to see colors coming from original subject, as part/effect of composition and lighting, NOT as as a byproduct of PP'ing effects .


Please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and please RENAME THE SUBJECT TO INDICATE THE TITLE OF YOUR ENTRY.

R U L E S:

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You can post TWO images.

(I assume this is the Challenges' new rule, Renato)

Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put a (CC) next to the title of your image.

Please embed your image in the thread. Try to resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll. Typically 800 pixels on larger size (including frames) will be a good choice.
