Just for fun
Recently I've been working on a series of photos the highlight textures in combination with colors. This is not a project to reproduce reality but to create and effect. Some are a lot more abstract than others. The subject in this one is a flat sandstone rock with lichen and dead grass scattered on it. Gradations in tones is as was at time photo was taken, colors are creations. Curious what you all think.
Challenge: And your bi-weekly challenge is brought to you by the color RED
Alright. This will be nitty, gritty. I have no examples. I'm just giving you your mission should you choose to accept it. It's still the time of year where color is everywhere. And we know how much I like monotone, but I love this time of year because of the color. And most importantly because of the warm colors you see (red, orange, yellow). So I'm going to make this a bit of a two-parter because really, if shoot a certain subject that is near and dear to my heart you'll get all those warm colors.
You mission is to shoot the color red (or a warm photograph, that's the two-parter bit). Now I don't want to see ONLY shots of red leaves, or red cars, or red bicycles. Try and make the red a part of the photograph but not necessarily the focal point or main subject (like a portait of someone in some fall foliage, perhaps). Red tends to fight other things for your eyes' attention because it's so bold so this can be hard to accomplish. Challenge yourself to get a balanced photo that just happens to have some red in it.
The other things I mentioned are fully acceptable, I'm just trying to make you look for something different. Something less obvious.
As always, try and shoot new pictures if you can. If you have a stellar example from the past go ahead and post it.
This message will not self-desctruct in 5 minutes.

Same Pic, New Twist
The Very White (With a tint of red)
Anyways, a couple weeks ago, I went to Trax Farms Market, an old store that has grown incredibly from a roadside store to comercial heaven in the past decade. Anyways, they sell good apples for good prices, along with many other fruits and vegetables. They also have hundreds of thousands of home-grown pumpkins that you can choose from, which the kids like to climb over.
Also, I want to know what people think about the picture entitled "Pumpkins" because I personally thought that it was pretty good. However, if you don't, please say so.
