Challenge: Color on Color (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
Location: Cozumel Mexico
Date: Jul 23, 2006
Aperture: F5.6
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/200
Date Uploaded: Jul 25, 2006

Shot in Cozumel at the hotel Fiesta Americana Dive Resort. They had some abstract columns when viewing the ocean so I tried a number of different shots.

Editing:

- Had to do a bit of spot healing to clean up sensor problems (humidity when moving from your hotel room to the outside is killer!).
- Adjusted levels
- Sharpening
- resize
- save for web

Undoubtedly voted low for too much red, but this is an awesome composition. I very much like it - this is the type of thing I love to shoot myself. I wouldn't change a thing about the composition - the only nit I have is the color of the sky seems just a tad purplish to me. Very nice shot!

the red pillars take away from the "blue on blue."

this is a stunning picture, but the red is too distracting for the challege topic.

I am a huge fane a simple yet elegant compositions. I love the red on blue, it is a very nostalgic image to me.

the greenery in the upper right is distracting, i think a slightly different perspective (to align the pillars better) and a different crop would help this shot.

The picture is great with the red pillars popping out at you, but I don't really feel it fits the challenge perfectly. I get what you mean about the blue ocean on the blue sky, but they're both in the background. All in all, this is a nice pic if only for those red pillars.

Very nice contrast in colors and good composition!

You got the poles vertical! That's better than I would have done! I like this, the vertical vs the horizontal works very well. Sky looks a bit unnatural though, especially the clowds look very purple-ish. Only thing I don't like.

This is a very nice picture, but I'm not sure if it actually fits the challenge.

Too much secondary color to hit the challenge theme topic IMO. Other than that it's an interesting composition.

NIce photo, but it's more like Red on Blue... not quite apt for the challenge.

to me this is red on blue not blue on blue

Ok I'm lowballing this and here is why. Blue on Blue is what you present as your theme. Yet the dominant subject in the photo are the large red bars. Add to this the white railing or knee wall and the brown bit of concrete showing and this is about as far removed from color on color as could be.

Compositionally, this was a nice idea. As this is advanced editing, I think you could have taken this and played with the colors to get everything up as shades of blue to better meet the challenge. Also would have been good to clone out that piece of hair or whatever is in the top right corner.

THIS IS SOMETHING I WOULD NOT EXPECT. BLUE WATER, BLUE SKY? RED PILLARS?

I think the red is to prominent to be a blue on blue

A stretch of mind and details.

Like the contrast, although it does not exactly meet the challenge (same color)
