Taken at Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii. The lava was actually more reddish than this, except for the area right where it was emerging from under the rock, so I fiddled with the color and saturation to bring out the yellow for the challenge. Still, I expect many will say this isn't really yellow. I kind of agree, but I don't care- I got to see lava up close!!!

I bet a lot of people won't understand what that is or why it's a nice shot.

Interesting composition and definitely yellow! This is either Hawaii or a wierd tumor on an elephant. Nice photo...should do very well.

Great use of color - but the depth of field is a little shallow.

Utterly awesome! Superb choice for yellow - it works so well against the grayish rocks.

this looks like it may be a lava flow but there isn't enough context to tell for sure if you haven't seen one, most of us live some place that doesn't have volcanos

I can't figure out what this is, and it seems kind of gross, but the texture and use of the color are good.

Great subject, very unique. Love the yellow against those blacks and dark grays and black. Title really matches the picture too. 9

Excellent shot. Really deserves to do well.

This is a pretty difficult subject. The hottest lava has about exhausted the variation in yellow, and the crevices don't allow light.. There are some interesting variations in texture and the composition is good. A 6.
