interesting, I really like the ripples and the, is that green? next to the black, but I dont think it meets the challenge,

Complementary colours are pairs of colours that contrast strongly when compared to each other.
Black and white are neutrals and not colours at all, and therefore they cannot be complementary colours... white shows the presence of light, and black shows the absence of light. Black and white areas next to each other do demonstrate high contrast, but high contrast gives a different visual effect than complementary colours do in a picture.
Check some of the forum discussions on complementary colours for suggestions on using colour for contrast.

What is it?

I find this an interesting photo and effect. As for the colors though, to me they are too muted and dark, and I can't quite tell if that's a very dark forest green and maybe a darker violet? I wonder if a stronger light source or additional sharpening would increase the overall color effect?

very cool, but...

Interesting textures and colours, but not complemetary.

What am I looking at? Water drop over a black background with white circles? I like the abstractness of it. But it feels like it could use a bit more punch/cleaness to the blacks and whites.

This is a very strange shot. Where are the complimentary colors? What is it?
10/06/2005 12:08:43 PM
Does not meet the challenge.
10/06/2005 02:28:37 AM
An interesting photo but I can't see the complementary colours.

Doesn't seem to meet the challenge. Where are the Colours.

The image actually comes out very well. I look forward to seeing the result of the voting on this one.
10/05/2005 08:27:30 PM
see no complementary colors, sorry
10/05/2005 05:00:55 PM
Doesn't meet the challenge, as far as i can tell. That said, it's an interesting shot.
10/05/2005 12:25:43 PM
Complement colors?
10/05/2005 11:55:07 AM
where is the color? i don't know what i am looking at.

Black and white aren't complementary colors. They are contrasting but not colors at all.
10/05/2005 09:24:28 AM
Neat picture. Hard to see the colors though. Nice shapes.
10/05/2005 07:32:34 AM
neutrals, not colors
