Challenge: Cool Colors (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
Location: Nova Scotia, Canada
Date: Apr 1, 2008
Aperture: f8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/4
Date Uploaded: Apr 1, 2008

shot in daylight with tungsten balance, then gaussian blur filter ('cause i'm vain), selective colour, colour balance and curves to exaggerate the blue.

it seems lots of people don't know that if you shoot tungsten in daylight, it turns even the warmest colours blue. or maybe i'm too tangential for my own good. i liked how the pink blanket and my pinkish skin are blue with almost no tweaking at all. (am i blue, am i blue...)

I'll just offer a "huh?" on the score thing. I've given up on the whole why thing. Brilliant idea, equally awesome execution. And it seems to me you can be whoever you want to be - every picture I see of you is different. Very well done, young lady.

The skin tones on the face are somewhat distracting from the overall 'cool' effect of the image. I like the use of lighting on a human subject in this image, something I had expected to see more of in this challenge!

Can't see how the monochrome blue adds to this pic.
