11 - Color

Canon 40D 70 -200mm at 70mm, iso 100, 1/2000 sec @ f2.8

This is an image with my favorite color. What color is it? I thought about making the image not so obvious, but the answer is there. First a strong B&W subject, but Black is the color of objects that do not emit or reflect light in any part of the visible spectrum; they absorb all such frequencies of light. White is the color of objects that reflect all parts of the visible spectrum. Sorry for the science. Next you see the reds, oranges and yellows they appear to move toward you. NO, not any of them. And last the touch of blue, hopefully the last color you see in the image. Thanks for taking the journey.

If I remember right (from our first evening at the start of the Feb. '08 RV Death Valley workshop) - BLUE :-)

This is a neat image that is visually appealing on the surface (because of the great colors), and also tells a story in a unique way. The close-up of the tree trunk shows you the nice, natural texture and detail of a tree, and the OOF area hints nicely at the fall colors happening in the nearby forest. I like this a lot - I think it's a very good and unique photo of fall foliage.
