Community Photo Challenge- COLOR


This month's subject is color...but NOT just color. We want to see you create something special color-wise. Something your camera did not see. Something you saw in the photo and created in post processing.

There are a lot of ways color can be used:

1. Selective color...create a black and white or other monochrome photo with just a touch of eyes, a child's red jacket, whatever you choose, but make most of the image monochrome.

2. Play with the different color modes in your photo editing software. Create a duotone, or make a monochrome using something other than black & white or sepia.

This challenge is limited only by your imagination so get out there and IMAGINE COLOR!

My example of Selective Color:


Using Duotone, green & black:


Below I used 2 bold colors along with Black & White.

Well as always your shots are stunning and I love the selective color. I am going to have to do a search on how to do this in Photoshop and perhaps give this a try!

I saw my first live peacock at the Denver Zoo. They let them walk away freely. They are stunning to see in person. Great job, Marie, as usual!

I saw my first peacock at the Denver Zoo when we lived in Colorado. They just let them walk around free there. They are stunning to see in person. Great job, Marie, as usual!

Great use of selective color! The peacock is amazing in saturation without bleeding.

Marie, sorry I'm so late here, but it's not that I don't love your images...the color in that peacock really pops off the page!

I appreciate the way the duotone gives rise to a new insight to the detail of the peacock, as well as the other examples. I just have one more recent (June) posting (a photo of Salty in his pen). Good progress on my home addition with my worker. Too tired most of the time to be on the computer. mark/salty
