Slightly Color Blind

Wow...it's been a while that I've played in the Round Robin Photo Challenges...and I've missed it.

But this challenge was my idea (so they say) from way back. And though I don't remember it, of course I had to play! lol



The challenge was to simply change an original photo so that its color is altered to make it different and interesting. So I decided to go subtle, and I'm pleased with the results.



This first one was a straight-forward sky blue background. But I love the color combination of Purple and Blue, so I just made that happen!













This next one was meant to be deleted as it started as a rather boring fall reflection shot. I mean, the colors had not yet peaked and were rather dull. So with a tiny tweak of the editing, the following photo appeared. I just liked how the fall colors only appear in the water. Pretty cool, huh?










And finally, I call this one "Too Much of a Good Thing".

I took a photo of a bunch of different colored leaves that had fallen. But ya know how we often look for the brightest oranges or reds? Well, I made them ALL red, yet to my surprise, that just didn't work for a nice photo. I like the original better. How about you?








So go on over to The Round Robin Blog and check out the other fine, creative entries!

Go on...
GO!

The first picture is magical.
I am fond of the natural leaves more so, but you have a right to try :-). ~Mary

I love the way you tweaked your photos!! I especially love the lake and fall reflection--what a creative use of editing!

Monica said...

As Mary said, the first photo is MAGICAL. I really like it. I also like trees reflection, the look of youth yet in the reflection it's "aging".

You did great but on the last one I like the natural color leaves better than red. Helen

Sandy said...

Awesome edits! The sky one is incredible and the fall colored trees in the reflections is wonderful! I agree I like the original colors of the leaves best in the lastshot.

Karen Funk Blocher said...

Very interesting selections! The two-tone sky is a neat idea, and the reflection being an idealized version of dull reality is especially cool. And you're right - if the leaves on the ground are all the same color, they're not nearly as pretty!

Those first two are awesome. What a clever idea for giving green trees a colorful reflection.

I think I had the date for Round Robin confused in my head (go figure). Better get busy...

XOXO
