Subjects with vivid colours have immediate impact.
Again, this can be one single colour or perhaps two complimentary colours from opposite ends of the specrum – eg. blue and yellow.
For the most vibrant colours, you need good strong lighting – plenty of sun or perhaps flash, depending on the subject.
[The Mini Crevass – anything red has an immediate impact, and this macro shot of frost patterns on my car is no exception]
[The Green Lens – still striking, but grabs the attention a little bit less than it’s red brother. The lighthouse lens is lit from behind by a shaft of sun]
[The Stamping Ground – stage lighting gives this shot a dramatic feel. I liked the contrast between red and yellow gels]
[Blue Luzzu – strong Mediterranean sun (and a polarising filter) brought out the depth of the colours in this Maltese fishing boat. I liked the complimentary blues and yellows]
