Community Photo Challenge-COLOR

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 color...blue 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.

You can post a colorful image... Can be of one color, 2 colors or MANY colors. You do not need any photo editing programs to join in.

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

So come & join in the challenge, if you haven't joined in yet, this is a great challenge to start!!

Remember to post your images on your blog, come back here & click on the blue button on the bottom, left side of this post. Follow the easy directions. You can only post one image here, but as many as you want on your blog.

Sorry it started late, I was sick the past week. This challenge usually starts on the 15th of every month, It begins today & ends on June 15th.

Here are a few links on color that I found.

It's perfect,Sherrie, no rules, just your interpretation of color. I hope everyone else understands they can post colorful images too. ANYTHING that represents COLOR!

Hi, Marie! I think this is a great idea. I hope my photo makes sense...the little playing with color made a big difference in my photo...took me a few attempts to post it since my original photo was too large...I reduced it to websize and it worked! Thanks or doing this. I love your photo challenges...it's a great way for me to experiment or keep inspired about my photos and also see what others are up to here in Photo blog land!
